I've become a big fan of mini PC systems over the past few years, as it's pretty remarkable at how much power can be crammed into a such a compact package. It seems the bulk of them tend to adopt Intel hardware, which is fine, but what about AMD powered mini PCs? They exist, and Minisforum is releasing what it says is... Read more...
Intel might be readying a Next Unit of Computing (NUC) codenamed Wall Street Canyon that's built around Alder Lake-P, but what's really interesting is the potential marketing angle.

Aw, would you like at that, how adorable! I'm talking about the teeny-tiny case fan the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released for its Raspberry Pi 4 mini PC module.
