ECS is expanding its Liva line of small form-factor desktop computers with the most powerful model to date. The new ECS Liva One is a computer with an Intel Skylake processor, support for Windows or Ubuntu, and plenty of connectivity options.
Measuring 6.9″ x 6.8″ x 1.3″, the new ECS Liva One is a bit larger than the Liva X2, Liva Core, or other earlier Liva computers. But it’s also got the hardware to offer much better performance.
The computer features 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, four USB 3.0 ports, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, Gigabit Ethernet, a microSD card slot, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA ports, and a headset jack.
ECS says the system comes with a Core i3-6100T Skylake processor, 4GB of RAM, and an 80GB M.2 solid state drive, but that those specs are flexible. There’s also support for a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.
No price or release date has been announced yet, but given the spec sheet, I expect this not only to be the most powerful Liva to date… but also the most expensive.
