Tiny PC for under $100 launches in August

Utilite Miniature PC

Israel based Compulab will start to ship a PC for less than $100 in August.

The PC, called Utilite will be offered with fully featured, desktop-grade Ubuntu Linux or Android operating systems and deliver a rich multimedia and PC-like user experience.

Just like the Ouya Android console that launched last month, the PC will be completely open sourced and Compulab has committed to working closely with developers to maximise the power and capabilites of the tiny PC.

While prices start form $99 for a single core model, the flagship model will feature a 1.2Ghz quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, up-to 4GB RAM and dual-head 1080p display output. Storage capacity can be either a solid state drive up to 512GB or with a micro SD card up to 128GB.

Even though the PC is only less than 14cm wide it comes packed with connections, with four USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and DVI-D ports. Network connections include two ethernet ports, Wifi and Bluetooth connections. Power consumption is between 3-8W depending on devices in use which compared to a normal desktop PC is very efficient.

Its low cost, tiny size and powerful features mean that you could have a fully-fledged PC in any room in the house and is ideal for those that want a PC to run their favorite apps or who like to develop in an open source enviroment.
