Dell Launches New Micro Desktop

    There used to be a time when having a computer in you pocket was a euphemism for a mobile phone. These days you really can have pocket size desktop computers which fit in your pocket.

    .

The Dell Inspiron Micro Desktop is the size of a burger box, and contains an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage , has dual band 802.11ac Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI Socket, 3 USB (1 USB 3) sockets, ethernet socket, SD card reader and Windows 8.1!

All in all, it's a pretty good package for most day to day usage and can be connected to any modern TV/ Monitor. Carry around a nice portable keypad and you've got mobile computing all for just £199.

£199 for a low powered computer? After seeing what the £25 Raspberry Pi2 can do, I can't help thinking this is massively over priced. The day that everyone else starts thinking the same is when the Intel/Microsoft world will start to collapse (if it hasn't already).

The exact same spec Dell Micro Desktop on offer in the UK at £199 can be bought from the US Dell web site for $179.99/£118 (not including tax, or the extra $18 Dell cashback)... just goes to show this *is* significantly overpriced in the UK, ie. rip-off. :(

Cant see which processor is in the Dell?

Two models will be available, both in black: One includes a dual-core up-to-2.58GHz Intel Celeron J1800 processor, while the other has a more powerful quad-core up-to-2.67GHz Intel Pentium J2900. Both versions come with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage.

Those Intel ones (I was going to get one a while back) are pretty decent, and cheap if you shop around and build it from your own components sourced from wherever. At least with that, you can make it as powerful as you want (within reason). The Dell one does seem very low-spec.

I got the i3 board and then added ram and a HDD to use for my Kodi box

 

Then I added it to this case and now have a completely silent media PC

 

Considering the same sort of thing for my main PC as I don't really need much grunt for what I do these days
