The CX919 is another of the growing number of quad-core powered mini PCs, this time built around Rockchip’s RK3188 processor. It’s built into a similar chassis to the old MK802 III dual-core dongle and sells for around $US80 on GeekBuying.com. The bonus is that it has an external Wi-Fi antenna to overcome issues previously seen on internal-antenna models.
If you’re thinking about upgrading the ROM on one of these devices, GeekBuying has a detailed guide on how to do so using a Windows PC with links to drivers required plus the step-by-step process.
