ECS has launched their new LIVA-X mini PCs featuring Intel Bay Trail-M / Bay Trail-I SoC processors that boost 64-bit dual-core performance up to 2.25GHz. The LIVA-X comes with Windows 8.1 pre-loaded (optional) but also supports Windows 7 (via mSATA SSD). Linux and Ubuntu OS’ support are subject to version.
The LIVA-X comes with 2GB or 4GB DDR3L DRAM and 32GB or 64GB eMMC soldered onto the board. Expansions are covered internally by the mSATA slot for an SSD and externally with two USB 2.0 and one USB 3.0 port. It also supports dual monitors through the HDMI and VGA ports and comes with Realtek ALC283 Audio and RTL8111G Gigabit Ethernet as well as b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
The palm-sized miniPC isn’t much bigger than a cellphone and support VESA mounting for complete hideaway. It also features a no noise thermal design, providing a complete silent PC.
Availability is still sparse, but Amazon is carrying starting from $250. Price depends on model choice.
