Low Cost Computer

Thought I would pass this mini pc along. would make a good computer for an IV or maybe master server.

That looks pretty cool.  Could you hook a Kinect to it and use it as an input device for CQC once Dean releases the new beta?

I was wondering the same. It does not look like it's USB 3.0 so I don't know.

Here's a link to some other mini pcs, several of which have USB 3.0.  The Zbox PI220 looks especially promising for $140.

The Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry has one USB3 port.

seems so be a similar idea to intel's compute stick thingies?
example:
Intel Compute Stick BOXSTK1AW32SC Ultra-slim PC Intel Atom X5-Z8300 (1.44 GHz) 2 GB DDR3L 32 GB eMMC Intel HD Graphics Windows 10 Home 32-Bit
NOTE: As one wise professional something once stated, I am ignorant & childish, with a mindset comparable to 9/11 troofers and wackjob conspiracy theorists. so don't take anything I say as advice...

Anyone ever try these? I need a thin client just for RDP'ing into the VM. The RPi3 doesn't have enough chops to do a good job. Reviews don't seem great on its video capabilities, i'd need to RDP Photoshop, not sure how that works via VMs though.

I don't know if I have that specific one, that was just what came up with a quick googling...
but yes, I have an intel cumputestick thingy with an little atom running win10 32bit...
seems fine...
a little slow at times, but over all fine...
the slow at times = turning on from an off state, win10 itself feels a bit slow, and starting programs can be slow, but once they start they seem fine, CQC seems zippy... SageTV works good...

I dont know if I even tried RDP, I think it is win10 Home edition, does that even have an RDP server in it?

I thought Win10Home had RDP client on it. I need it to connect *to* a VM. If SageTV works fine then Photoshop will definitely run fine.

I want an ultra-low power device I can leave either turned on, or auto-on upon monitor turned on. The RPi3 would have been perfect, but the RDP is far too laggy.
