Ockel Sirius A Is a Windows 10 PC with 6-inch Display
Ockel is one of the little-known brands in the PC market and this is the first covering of any of their products by us. The company was present at the CES 2017, where it showcased a prototype of the Ockel Sirius A – a miniature Intel-powered Windows 10 PC or mini-PC.
Housed in an anodised aluminium metal shell with an unusual form factor, the Ockel Sirius A packs a 6-inch touchscreen 1080p Full HD screen resolution with multitouch support, a quad-core Intel Atom x7-Z8750 processor and the OS onboard is the full version of either the Windows 10 Home or Pro.
Two versions of this touchscreen mini-PC will be available – the normal model with 4GB RAM, Windows 10 Home and 64GB built-in storage listed for $699 and the pro model with double RAM and Storage (8GB RAM + 128GB storage) and Windows 10 Pro is priced for an extra $100 (at $799).
Equipped with a full sized HDMI port onboard, the Ockel Sirius A can connect to a bigger screen (either a monitor or TV) while the main screen can function as the keyboard or preferably, connect a QWERTY keyboard via the USB 3.0 ports or Bluetooth.
The rest of the specs includes – a 5MP camera, headphone jack, 2x USB 3.0 ports, 1x USB-C port, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, full sized HDMI & DisplayPorts, Gigabit ethernet and microSDXC card slot. The 3000mAh lithium polymer battery is expected to last up to three solid hours of video playback.
The Sirius A raised more than $450,000 on Indiegogo last year and if everything goes according to plan, backers will get the mini-PC by May. The company previously used the platform to raise backing for the Ockel Sirius B Pocket PC.
