This starts to look a bit like the home terminal I dreamed about in 2000. Also with its integrated battery and inclinated screen, it can serve a lot of purposes, such as PDF/schematics viewing for electronicians, recipes for cookers, etc… much more conveniently than a tablet since it can easily stay inclinated when put on a top of a pile of junk (especially for electronicians). I suspect it may also be used for POS in some small restaurants.
Too bad it doesn’t have HDMI input. It would be an awesome companion to an HDMI microscope.
its a chunkier/cheaper version of the Ockel Sirius!
We use the X9s as a POS in a mmj dispensary. Very nice machines. The larger screen on this one will likely have us ordering a couple.
It is sold as GOLE10 now for $168.99 on GearBest @ https://www.gearbest.com/mini-pc/pp_690343.html
