Cheapest 128GB Windows PC, Looks Like a USB Drive

This mini PC from XCY is barely any larger than a chocolate bar, yet it runs on Windows and packs 4GB RAM and 128GB storage. Check out this curiosity for your self.

XCY appeared on our radar a number of weeks in the past when it launched a mini PC, just like the Chuwi LarkBox, that packs 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

The corporate has taken the identical configuration, tweaked it barely and placed it in a PC stick called the M1K, which is barely any larger than a bar of chocolate (just like the Minisforum S41).

The CPU stays the identical: the quad-core, quad-thread Intel Celeron N4100, which  nonetheless requires a lively heatsink fan. The gadget connects to a monitor through an HDMI port and features two USB slots on one aspect and a microSD on the opposite, subsequent to a proprietary power-in (which is a little bit of a disappointment).

XCY halved the system memory to 4GB (LPDDR4) and the system storage switched to slower eMMC reasonably than a SATA-based SSD.

Wi-Fi is dealt with by the Intel Wireless-AC 7265, which features 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2. Aside from Windows 10, the one different notable characteristic is the bundled HDMI adapter cable.

The primary challenge with this kind issue is that becoming it in the back of a monitor is perilous to say the least, given most HDMI ports face the wall, reasonably than down. On prime of that, the M1K’s dimension (135 x 45 x 15mm) means it might show incompatible with some televisions resulting from clearance issues.
