Chinese device maker Communication Technology has introduced a new mini-computer called the MiniPC Detsel-01. It’s basically a desktop computer or set-top-box that fits in the palm of your hand.

Unlike some mini PCs we’ve seen lately, this one has an x86 processor. While it’s a low power Intel Atom processor designed for embedded systems, theoretically it should allow you to run Windows 7 as well as Linux, Windows Embedded, or other operating systems.


The Detsel-01 is powered by a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom E680 processor with a TDP of 4.5 watts.

The little computer also features 1 GB of DDR2 memory, a 64GB or 128GB SATA II solid state disk, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.

It also has 2 USB 2.0 ports, D-Sub output, and mic and headphone jacks.

The Detsel-01 measures 4.9″ x 2.9″ x 0.47″. There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.

  1. Update: According to Communication Technology, the base model will be available for a sizable $400.

  2. I like the sound of this. Keep your sata ssd though, I’ll put my own in & save some money.. 8)

  3. My first impression is that this will have the same annoying limitation  that ASUS X101CH has: The memory is hard-wired to be 1 gig and there is no way to expand it.  A system with 2 gigs is a lot more interesting to me than a 1 gig system.

    With the SSD, it will be difficult to get this to cost less than $300.

    1. This is a SATA II and it’s time for some manufacturers (here chinese) to kill the habit of overpricing SSDs.
      I bet for a 150$ price tag due to the cheap Atom and the abscence of screen.

      As for the product itself, we’re nearly there. A better cpu, a bit more Ram  in the same volume or less and these devices will fly off the shelfs.

      1.  The E Series ATOMs are Intel’s embedded systems application ATOM series and the one they’re using is still on the older 45nm FAB.

        The Z series covers the ultra low powered, the N covers standard mobile, and the D covers nettop/desktop applications.

        For general consumers I wouldn’t recommend any but the the N and D series, while the Z can be a okay compromise for either size and/or greater mobility.

      2.  >>>A better cpu, a bit more Ram  in the same volume or less and these devices will fly off the shelfs.

        Yes, I agree!  WANT!
