The G-Box Dyno is a tiny $69 device designed to let you run Android apps on a TV. It’s about the size of a USB flash drive, but features an Amlogic AML8726 ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, WiFi and HDMI.

It’s a pretty well-built mini PC which comes with a version of the XBMC media center pre-installed. It also comes with a small wireless remote control. On the other hand, when I looked at the unit sent to me by the distributor suffers from flaky WiFi.

This week we’re giving away a lightly-used G-Box Dyno… and we’re throwing in a 7 inch Ainol Novo ELF II tablet for good measure. Or maybe we’re giving away a tablet and offering a mini PC as a bonus. You can decide for yourself.

Ainol Novo Elf II and G-Box Dyno

The ELF II is an inexpensive… and not all that impressive tablet. While it has a relatively zippy Amlogic AM8726 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage, it’s got a lousy 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display with poor viewing angles.

W2Comp sells the Ainol Novo ELF II tablet for $130, and sent Liliputing a couple units for our holiday giveaway. We already gave away one tablet, and now we’re going to bundle the second unit with a G-Box Dyno for our next contest.
