But according to Androidpc.es, MiniX has managed to improve on the compact mini PC design even further wit the release of the new Neo x5 mini.
This tiny mini PC doesn’t have the horsepower of its bigger brother, the MiniX Neo x5, but it doesn’t have the size either, making it easier to hide in your loungeroom.
It’s powered by Rockchip’s previous-generation RK3066 dual-core SoC CPU (not the newer RK3168) with a clock speed hitting 1.4GHz. It comes with 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 8GB of on-board flash but loses the Bluetooth module. You still get Wi-Fi in the form of 802.11b/g/n wireless support and there’s Ethernet on the back. You also get a compact but workable IR remote.
HDMI v1.4 and optical TOSlink (S/PDIF) digital audio output can also be found on the back. On the front, you’ll find two USB2.0 ports plus a standard-sized SD card reader.
It’s now selling from resellers on Aliexpress for $US79.99 – that’s a little pricey for a dual-core mini PC but we’ve seen worse.
