Showing that a mini PC doesn’t have to just mean flash or external storage, mini PC maker Kaiboer is set to release a new model called the Kaiboer Q7, which features, among other things, a 3.5-inch SATA drive rack that slides out from the chassis internals.
At this stage, few details are known about the new model, except that it comes with an undisclosed dual-core SoC CPU based on ARM’s Cortex A7 architecture. That means it won’t be exceptionally fast but in terms of media playback, Kaiboer think it’s enough to do the job.
In fact so good, the brand has slapped a ’3D’ logo on the front. According to androidpc.es, the Q7 runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system but has a modified user interface called KIUI6.0.
According to image shots we’ve seen so far, the Q7 will have a small 30-40mm fan on the back to provide internal cooling. There’s also dual Wi-Fi antennas. Among the ports available on the back is a number of video outputs including HDMI output, composite video and what looks to be component-video output. That would make the Q7 the first mini PC we’ve seen to incorporate component-video.
Audio looks to also be provided in multiple ways – from composite stereo audio to digital audio not only through the HDMI port but also via coax and optical S/PDIF.
At this stage, there is no pricing or release date information available, but given how complete the model looks, we can’t think it’ll be too far away.
