New Technology – Ockel Sirius B is a pint-sized Windows 10 PC

SHARE

The Ockel Sirius B is a pocket-sized Windows 10 computer, and its size is comparable to a smartphone or portable hard drive. And take note: like the GPD Win handheld gaming device, the Sirius B doesn’t use a watered-down version of Windows 10; it uses the same full 64-bit Windows 10 that a regular desktop PC runs.

But unlike the pricey GPD Win (which costs upwards of $400), the Sirius B can be purchased for as low as $190.

Ease of Use

However, there’s a small catch: to use the Sirius B, you’ll need to first plug it into an HDMI display, keyboard and mouse, and a power outlet. So instead of a handheld device that you can use on the go, think of it as a really small desktop computer that can easily replace a bulky PC tower.

We think it works particularly well when you need to give presentations. Instead of lugging around a laptop to a remote location, you can load your files into the Sirius B and connect it to the venue’s equipment with no hassle as it works with any standard desktop gear.

The Ockel Sirius B is actually powerful enough to replace a netbook or even a standard laptop (though not by much). The convenience, connectivity options, and affordability make it a viable portable computing alternative.
