One reason so many people like a laptop is its portability. But desktops don’t have to be the big boxes called towers.

Velocity  Micro makes the “Edge Mini,” a desktop PC that’s only four inches by four inches, and 1.5 inches thick. It’s a small brick you can connect wirelessly to a monitor and keyboard. (This reminds us of a similar computer that came out 30 years ago and was called simply “The Brick.”)

The Edge Mini has a fast Intel processor and connects to “SATA” drives, which are much faster, heat up less and are more flexible than parallel or “PATA” drives. Other advantages: The Edge Mini can be connected to a large HD display. Perhaps best of all, you can get your choice of Windows 7 or 8. Prices start at $599.

  1. Hello great blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a lot of work?
    I have virtually no understanding of computer programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon.

    Anyhow, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic nevertheless I just needed to
    ask. Kudos!

  2. We use WordPress. No programming knowledge is necessary though it can get tricky. There are many books on the subject.
