Although we don't have the dimensions presented right in front of us, the iLife MP8 Micro PC appears to roughly the size of a 3-inch cube, yet still manages to pack in quite a bit of functionality. The device itself is powered by a quad-core Intel Celeron N4100 processor (Gemini Lake) paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage. Believe it or not, iLife was able to even find room inside for a fan to keep everything inside cool.
With regards to expansion and connectivity, there are two USB 3.0 ports, a USB Type-C port and a full-size HDMI connector. There's even a microSD slot on the side of the device for expanding storage beyond the included 64GB. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack if you want to hook up a pair of headphones or a speaker. There’s no word on wireless connectivity, but we’d imagine that you’d find at least 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 inside.
The MP8 Micro PC's hardware specs are enough to run Windows 10, which just crossed the 900 million installs milestoneearlier last month.
There is no word on when (or if) the iLife MP8 Micro PC will actually reach production or be made available for sale. If it does go on sale, iLife showed off two versions: one that features a chassis made completely of plastic, and one that has a black metal exterior. We're quite partial to the latter, but we're still trying to think of a usage scenario for the device.
What say you, HotHardware readers; is a tiny device like this on your radar screen, and if so, what would you use it for?
