The Remix Mini is a new Android-powered PC by Jide that has hit Kickstarter. Available from just $20, and that's to both back the project and order a unit for yourself, it's a new product that you can connect to supported screens and deploy a keyboard and mouse.
The Remix Mini is aimed at new businesses to avoid expensive investment on new office equipment, but we're sure consumers will also be interested in such savings. It's not a powerful machine by any means, but you are looking at a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 8GB / 16GB internal storage and either 1GB or 2GB of RAM.
As for connectivity, there's a HDMI connector with support for up to 4K resolution, as well as Wi-Fi, an ethernet port and Bluetooth 4.0. It's small, uses minimal amounts of power and provides a PC package at a low price point. Remix OS powers the setup, which is based on Android 5.0. It's available now for backing.
The Tiny PC that Gives Everyone Access to a Computer
Remix Mini: Game Changing PC for Entrepreneurs starting at $20 Now on Kickstarter
July 9, 2015 – (Beijing) – Remix Mini, an Android based mini PC, is uniquely positioned to provide a cost effective computing solution to the rising number of global entrepreneurs and small business owners. The biggest obstacle that entrepreneurs from every market currently face is the cost of starting and running a business. The Remix Mini starts at $20 on their Kickstarter campaign that just launched. For cash conscious entrepreneurs, $20 for a computer is a game changer. For the first 2 hours of the campaign, there will be an unlimited early-bird tier for the 2G Remix Mini model.
The Remix Mini is the most versatile and productive Android PC in the world and fits into the palm of your hands. By simply connecting to any screen, keyboard and mouse, you are able to treat the Remix Mini as you would any other computer and browse the internet, download and watch videos, create documents, and run any Android app or game you want.
The most affordable and productive Android PC
The Remix Mini carries with it the promise to radically change an individual or a group's ability to access modern technology, and is perfect for work and home. By bringing down the cost of a state of the art, fully functional computer, those who are still using old machines suddenly have a significantly affordable upgrade option in the market.
What's more, it requires roughly 6-10 times less power to run than an average tower desktop PC. If saving on utility bills is an important consideration, the Remix Mini does its part and pays for itself in energy savings.
While cost is a vital consideration, the user experience and ease of use are equally important. The other significant advantage that the Remix Mini has is that it runs on Remix OS, based on Android 5.0. As Android is the most widely used operating system in the world, users will be quite familiar with how to operate the Remix Mini. In addition, since Remix OS has incorporated much of the productivity features and functions from PCs, using Remix Mini to get your work done will be just as natural as using any Windows PC.
