ASUS prepares new mini PC

Intel’s Compute Stick started a new trend in the PC world – that of offering small form factor PCs that are as large as a USB flash drive and a bit later many other companies followed with one of them being ASUS. The Taiwanese hardware maker has several models on the market now with one of them being the QM1-B002 that will soon be followed by the larger VivoStick PC on the Cherry Trail platform. But before the latter appears ASUS plans to introduce one more mini PC.

The upcoming device is called QM1-C006 and when it comes to us, it will retire the current B002 model. The newcomer will offer a more powerful Atom x5-Z8300 processor (four Airmont cores at 1.44 GHz/1.84 GHz Turbo) and there will be 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. As a comparison the older B002 model has an Intel Atom Z3735F processor. The QM1-C006 will also have 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a microSD card slot, a HDMI 1.4a port, as well as microUSB and USB 2.0 ports. The device will be powered by Windows 10, unlike the older model, which had Windows 8.1 32-bit. The dimensions of the QM1-C006 will remain the same as in the B002 model – 111 x 38 x 9.8 mm (L x W x H).

The new mini PC will sell for EUR 151when it appears.
