In the past, we made use of to have office desktop computers that were so large that they sat under our desks along with palm-sized personal digital assistants with 3-inch displays that might take care of fundamental web browsing as well as e-mail, yet were not suggested for productivity.
Fast forward to today, we have smartphones with screens larger than six inches that can rarely suit a pocket and also which are also not indicated for performance, yet we have palm-sized desktop computers that are still adequate for almost all workplace work. A few of them are rather low-cost too.
ECS’s recently revealed Liva Q1D
Among such ultra-compact form-factor desktop computer PCs are ECS’s recently revealed Liva Q1D and also Liva Q1L that been available in framework that measure 74 x 74 x 34.6 mm yet supply important workplace features like two display screen outcomes and 2 GbE ports.
The ECS Liva Q1D and Liva Q1L systems are based on Intel’s ‘Apollo Lake’ Celeron N3350 (2C/2T, 1.10 GHz– 2.40 GHz, HD Graphics 500, 6W TDP) or Pentium N4200 (4C/4T, 1.10 GHz– 2.50 GHz, HD Graphics 505, 6W TDP) system-on-chips coupled with 2GB or 4GB of LPDDR4 memory along with an eMMC module of 32GB or 64GB capability.
On the connectivity side of matters, the ECS Liva Q1D as well as Liva Q1L function Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.1, 3 USB Type-C ports (two USB 3.0, one USB 1.0), and a micro-SD card slot. The major difference between both systems is various display and also networking connection:
Among the especially excellent attributes of ECS’s Liva Q1D as well as Liva Q1L UCFF PCs is their rate. The least expensive arrangement with the Intel Celeron N3350 SoC costs $210, whereas the more advanced Intel Pentium N4200-powered PC is valued at $240.
