[LIST] Mini PCs with VGA output

coolshipVirtually all SoC CPUs include both HDMI and VGA output functionality, so it’s always been a bit of a surprise that not more mini PCs include a VGA port.

It’s understandable with the TV stick style models, but not entirely. The VGA socket isn’t that big but its use would enable running these devices on the millions of left-over LCD monitors that are building around the globe.

We think it’s also a good way to build some differentiation into these devices, which have started to get a bit ‘same same’ in the last few months.

So the question is which mini PCs on the market at the moment include a VGA port?

Here’s our list so far:

* MeLE A1000-series - all of these set-top-box style mini PCs include VGA and HDMI so you get the choice of which to use, powered by Allwinner’s A31 quad-core SoC CPU.

* Cubietruck - this dual-core Allwinner A20 PC-on-a-board is on the way and will feature both VGA and HDMI. No pricing at this stage.

* Focuswill Coolship - this one is a throwback to the Commodore C64 days, packing in a mini PC into a AT-style keyboard. It’s powered by Rockchip’s RK3066 dual-core CPU and definitely an unusual design.

* Gaiyee TVB103 - One of the more powerful mini PCs around, this one gets going with Rockchip’s quad-core RK3188 SoC CPU with quad-core Mali-400 MP4 graphics GPU.
