A few years ago Microsoft and ECS teamed up to offer a cheap way for developers to try out their Windows on ARM apps on a PC with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Snapdragon Developer Kit, also known as the ECS Liva Mini Box, is mini desktop computer with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c processor.

With a $219 list price at launch, it was already one of the cheapest Windows on ARM computers available. Now Woot is selling it for just $70. Is it worth that price? Only if you can think of something to do with it… but maybe it’s a little more attractive now that it’s less than a third of its original price (or maybe it’s less attractive now that the budget processor inside is even older).

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

  1. I’d love a little more information about the QC710, but there seems to be next to none. In a previous post here about the thing, at least someone asked about running Linux and someone else posted a relevant link about compiling the kernel for Qualcomm chips, but it definitely appears that getting it to do anything useful would be a project — too bad; if it could run Linux, it would be a deal at $70.

    1. P.S. I was actually able to reach tech support at ECS — yes, there is no support for Linux. The hardware is capable enough, but because Windows only runs on the internal eMMC, it’s very slow. What could easily be a useful, fanless mini PC is instead just more e-waste.
