Technologies do not stand still, and after mastering the tablets, humanity is ready to move on. On the Indiegogo service, a startup "Mi PC" is launched, which offers a full-fledged personal computer, compressed to the size of a large smartphone. It only looks like a "fat tablet", but in reality it is an office-level mobile PC.
The main competitive differences of Mi PC: the presence of a whole set of interfaces - USB-C, USB 3.0 and 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI, plus the ability to install Windows 10. Or Android 5.1 - at boot, the user chooses what environment he wants to work in. In this respect, the novelty is similar to a laptop, which can become the basis of a workspace in an office with connection of peripheral devices or be used in any place like a pocket gadget.
True, it is suitable only for very wide pockets - the dimensions of the Mi PC are 135x90x16 mm, and the weight is 230 grams. This is necessary to accommodate a 5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels and support for 720p. Processor - Atom x7-Z8750 2, 56 GHz, 8 GB of RAM, there is a 128 GB SSD and a slot for memory cards. Wireless connectivity is provided by Bluetooth 4.2 and dual-band Wi-Fi, the battery capacity is 6000 mAh, which is enough for 6 hours of battery life.
The Mi PC itself comes with a folding Bluetooth keyboard, but the speaker system should be considered separately, the existing speakers are installed "for show".
