Now Biostar is introducing pint-sized PC called the Biostar Racing P1. It’s a full-fledged computer in a case the size of a (thick) smartphone.
According to Lowyat, the Racing P1 should to hit the market in the third quarter of 2016 for under $200.
The little computer features an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Cherry Trail processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage plus a microSD card slot for removable storage.
It has one USB 3.0 port, six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and Ethernet jacks, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a headset jack.
It’s hardly the first tiny, Intel Atom-powered mini PC we’ve seen. Kangaroo, Zotac, and other companies have similar products. But this one stands out for a few reasons: I believe it’s the first consumer-oriented mini PC from Biostar, and the Racing name is borrowed from a line of motherboards aimed at gamers.
The name seems like an odd fit for a low-power mini PC. But I suppose it provided an excuse to use the Racing design for the top of the computer.
