Remix Mini brings the Android eco-system to PC form.
This little device runs on Remix OS, which is an Android Lollipop framework that is lightly tweaked to offer PC-like productivity. It's currently seeking backers on Kickstarter and is already way past its pledge goal. The Remix comes with a standard wall power plug-in, connects to a monitor via HDMI cable, and will work with most USB mice and keyboards. It uses only 10 watts of power compared to the traditional 65 - 250 watts you'd find being consumed with regular PCs. Powered by a 1.2Ghz quad-core Cortex-A53 64 bit processor, it will come with either 1 or 2 GB of memory. Storage will only be 8 or 16GB, but it does come with a Micro SD expansion slot. Other ports include a headphone jack, USB 2.0 x 2 inputs, and an Ethernet port.
You simply hook this little unit up to your monitor and peripherals, and you get a fairly capable PC experience. Surf the internet, stream movies, work on office documents, or use some of the 1.5 million apps available in the Play store. The best part of all this is the cost. The first backers will get their hands on these for $20. For what many of us can spend on a single meal, you get a PC. There are still $30 Remix Mini units available. Bring your Remix on trips and connects to your device from an Internet Cafe, a relative's house or wherever you find the connection. Simple PC solution for each child in the house to have their personalized computer. There are endless neat uses for this device.
