    20W is a lot of power to dissipate in such a small form factor.

    Actually I’m not exactly sure if they used a 20W power adapter, or if the thing consumes up to 20W. Probably 20W power supply. I got it from the FAQ:
    “Q. How big is the xPC’s power source / adapter?

    A. The 20W power was provided through xPC connector.”

    Yes, I did some reading on the linked website, the Atom version has the CPU running at 2W, but the Core-i3 and Core-i5 versions run at 11.5W, which is still quite high. I hope this thing has a metal case, it will get very hot!

    There is another interesting concept with AMD-Hardware:
    Tango-PC

    Funding is running via indiegogo

    I don´t know, if those 25 Watt of the A6-5200 aren´t too much for the small case though.

    I really like things like this. Too bad this one doesn’t have a little display built into it. I think Android phones that let you spawn a display to your TV are a better approach, even though I prefer a Linux distro to Android for flexibility.

    It’s not clear which Bay Trail processor this is using but Bay Trail M has a TDP of 7.5W.
