The world’s first true android PC is the next big thing for all Android and gadget lovers. Remix Mini, powered by the Remix OS is a fully functional Android operating system for your Personal computer. Built by Jide Technologies, the remix OS functions just as your android device would, just, on your PC. This means a lovely desktop experience for your favorite apps and games, a complete fusion of mobile and desktop, plus simultaneous multiple window access so you can enjoy switching from app to app!
Remix OS began as a vision for a world in which the boundaries between mobile and PC would forever be eliminated. Previous attempts towards breaching this boundary include: Bluestacks App Player, ARC Welder app, Android emulator, etc.
Even as these all came so close, emulators just like simulators only give simulated instances of running these android applications on PC’s. They cannot structure the back end operating system on which these android apps run this mostly results in slow performance and limited functionality. The Remix OS supersedes these lapses and provides a unique yet original android look with a carefully engineered optimization of hardware and software.
So, why not make the switch and be a part of the future of Android PC? Let’s look into the pros and cons:
64-bits of effortless: Remix Mini is powered by the latest 64-bit chipset and delivers up to 20-30% better performance than its 32-bit counterparts. At the core of what makes this so special is actually what Remix Mini doesn’t need you to do. You will never have to worry about whether you’re installing the right bit version ever again.
Less energy, more efficiency: The typical desktop computer clocks in at anywhere between 65 to 250 watts. Remix Mini gives you the same power of desktop computing at a mere 10 watts. By simply leveraging already existing power efficiencies found in mobile CPU architectures, Remix Mini is able to save you so much more in power without sacrificing anything in performance.
Stay connected, in every way: Even at its small size, Remix Mini comes equipped with everything you need in order to stay connected: WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, and USB. All of these options give Remix Mini an unprecedented level of versatility in a variety of scenarios.
Your Mini, Your choice: Remix Mini comes in two versions. As a home media center, the 1G RAM + 8 GB storage gives you more than what you need to stream and download that blockbuster movie you’ve been dying to see. Now, if you’re looking for something with a bit more kick and productivity in mind, we highly recommend the 2G RAM + 16GB storage version. No matter what you decide, the choice will quite literally be in your hands.
The cons include.
Limited: You can only focus on one operating system at a time. You cannot simultaneously interface between the Remix OS and your Windows or Mac OS.
Preference: Some android devices function best with the touch functionality, meaning that for PC’s that are not touch screen enabled, difficulties may arise.
