Mini PC – Powerhouse in your Pocket

Mini PC - Powerhouse in your Pocket

The evolution of technology has been consistent ever since the creation of a computer. Every passing day there is an update within the hardware we use to make it more usable. The usability factor is highly dependent on that of portability and over the past decade, users who tend to use their computer machine daily have moved from a desktop PC to a laptop computer.

This shift had most certainly resolved the portability issue but it couldn’t make up for the performance factor, until the Mini PC concept made it to the spotlight. The Mini PC, as the name suggests, allows you to have better portability than a laptop without compromising on performance or speed.

What are Mini PCs?

The simplest explanation of a Mini PC is the shrinking down of a Desktop PC. The size of a processor, RAM and motherboard is shrunk down to the size of a box that you can carry around in your bag or even in your pocket.

Most of these Mini PCs have replaced the fan system of a desktop PC with a more effective and modern heatsink system, that keeps the hardware cooler and ventilated always. This helps with keeping the size compact as well.
