Giada Demos The Q11: A Full-Featured Android Based MiniPC

Giada Technology, a subsidiary of JIEHE Technology Development, which focuses on the development and manufacture of devices for cloud computing based on compact and cost-effective PCs and tablets, demonstrated its unique ultra-compact desktop PC, the Giada ARMMiniPC Q11 based on an ARM processor during the CES’13 exhibition which was held in the beginning of January 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. It may seem that there is no innovation in the field of autonomic computational systems which really surprises either system integrators or end user customers. Vendors only offer a few percentage points of improvement here and there in some specification annually. But what if there was a product which would allow the changing of the energy consumption considerably together with a significant decrease of the price per unit? It is possible today with the transition to the new ARM platform, which is overall more functional in key aspects. This is exactly what Giada Technology offers with the launch of its ARM MiniPC Q11. The new SFF(small form factor) system Q11 stands out among the many solutions based on Intel or AMD processors and Windows OS due to a considerably lower size of computational elements and a smaller mounting size. Thanks to those improvements, the size of the PCB and active components has been reduced significantly. The result impresses with a compact size and uniquely low energy consumption – now you can carry a fully functional system with you and work on the go. A...



 
 
 
 
 

Kingston V300 240GB

Another in the list of SandForce SSDs is the latest from Kingston, the SSDNow V300.
