Remember Pipo X8? We were among the first to discover. Mini PC was a “hybrid” because the usual polycarbonate chassis, the Chinese company had built a tablet to control the device with the touch and avoid – whenever possible – of having to connect an external display. In short, a year ago he was a real revolution, perhaps more special to the concept studied for the real utility of the Mini PC.
The development, however, did not stop and, months later, was born Pipo X9 very similar to the previous model but with a slightly smaller screen (8.9 inches) and dual-OS, Android and Windows 10. These days however, has Pipo launched its successor: Pipo X9s has the same chassis although probably metal (165 x 133 x 53 mm) with touch display and HDMI output to an external display, but a more current platform based on Intel Atom (Cherry Trail) 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in a 8.9-inch touch display. And ‘now on sale at about $ 200.
The new model looks aesthetically to the above but can boast a more powerful processor and twice the amount of RAM. Its data sheet, in fact, provides a quad-core Intel Atom Z8300-x5 from 1.84GHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage expandable up to 64GB with microSD cards, Ethernet 10 / 100M, four USB 2.0, WiFi 802.11n with the notable directional antenna, Bluetooth 4.0, and 3.5 mm audio jack.
