This little matchboxesque mini computer is more powerful than the warehouse sized computers of the 30s and 40s! Even more powerful than the computers of the 80s and 90s. Remember those back breaking two foot tall towers? Well this little gem has so much hidden inside.  Read what some tech guru’s have to say:

From Android Mini PC RK3066 Review,  Avram Piltch on February 5, 2013:

The Android Mini PC RK3066 is small enough to fit in your pocket, yet powerful enough to be your portable Android game console or workstation, depending on what apps you use. However, you don’t have to carry the RK3066 around to make great use of its capabilities. Because you can stream videos, play demanding games and conduct video chats, the RK3066 is a versatile and cheap set-top box. Linux geeks will enjoy the opportunity to hack the device and try different operating systems on it. Whatever you plan to do with it, this $60 device is a steal.

 

Not enough:  check out what  James Trew said over on his engadget article,

The Android Mini PC RK3066 is the MK802’s younger, smarter, cheaper brother, we go hands on

The device itself, is more of the same when it comes to design. That’s to say that it’s largely a small black box with the above mentioned ports. It’s slightly shorter this time, with a glossy finish, but overall its a discreet little unit that would slip into a pocket comfortably. We took the Android Mini PC RK3066 for a spin, and quickly connected a Bluetooth remote / keyboard. In moments we were navigating Android on a large TV like it wasn’t even a thing. Performance seemed pretty good, but it’s harder to tell when you’re not working with a touch interface such as a phone or tablet. It’s fair to say that navigating Android with a pointer or mouse is a whole different ball game. Nonetheless, apps loaded quickly enough for us not to notice, and simple browsing and casual gaming seemed perfectly acceptable.

This would be a great backup computer, if you had access to a spare monitor, just toss some cables, a mini bluetooth keyboard & mouse and you’re all set.
