20151128 Heads Up Tonight I Am Giving Up My Ma

Keith I MyersKeith I Myers2015-11-28 16:13:01-0500 – Updated: 2015-11-28 16:13:01-0500Heads Up : Tonight I am giving up my main computer for 2 weeks and exchanging it with the Android Powered RemixMini Computer. Unlike normal Android units, the RemixMini runs most Android applications in a Windowed Mode which in theory should make multitasking much easier. They accomplish this with a custom build of Android known as RemixOS.

I have had this unit sitting on my desk for a few weeks now and cannot wait to take it for a spin. I got it early as I was a Kickstarter backer. Jide, the company behind the RemixMini just launched the product on Amazon if you want to pick up your own unit. It should make a great gift for kids or anyone who needs a simple computer. You can pick it up at http://amzn.to/1QMA9Ym .

It has a quad core processor MTK processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. A microSD card slot and 2 USB 2.0 ports round it out nicely. It has WiFi and Bluetooth as well.

It is sort of sad that this computer costs 3x less then the monitor I have it connected to. (Affiliate Link)
