CS868 quad-core mini PC now selling under $100

cs868While the vast majority of mini PC feature the Rockchip RK3188 quad-core SoC CPU, there are other options available.

You’ll find a decent mix of functionality inside the CS868, including an Allwinner A31 quad-core Cortex A7 chip inside ticking over at up to 1GHz clock speed Also, you get a decent cache of 2GB DDR3 of RAM, while gaming is powered by a PowerVR SGX544 graphics core.

Internal storage is delivered through 16GB of on-board flash while external storage for larger files is provided by MicroSD, up to 32GB. Its internally run by Android 4.1 to maximise performance. Peripheral connectivity is covered by two USB ports on the unit to provide access for your peripheral devices, while your big-screen TV will get a work-out, thanks to its HDMI port.

Like most mini PC/TV sticks these days, it features a built-in full-sized HDMI plug. Good news is the boxed kit includes a short HDMI extensions cable. We think this is a far better option for plugging into the back of a TV as you don’t have the weight of the CX868 sitting on the HDMI socket on your TV.

While there’s no Bluetooth available, there’s Wi-Fi in the form of 802.11b/g/n available inside.

Unlike other mini PCs, this one features an internal Wi-Fi antenna. At this stage, we have no details on dimensions or weight. The product was announced back in April 2013.

At time of publishing, the CS868 was selling on eBay for $96, including international shipping.
