Meet the mini.m and si.zeRO

For those that couldn't make it to the Wakefield show, this month we will have RComp's recently released new machine the mini.m (pronounced "minim") on display for everyone to have a play with and marvel at its tiny size.

The mini.m is basically an ARMX6 squeezed down into a two-inch cube! Despite being small enough to fit in a pocket, it has the same CPU, 2GB RAM, high end graphics (up to 4k resolution), high quality audio over HDMI, gigabit ethernet, and SATA connectivity. To go along with the small size, it is also less than half the price :-)

We will also have a sneak preview of a couple of RISCOSbits products due for release at the London Show in October. First is the mini.mSATA, an mSATA "dock" for the mini.m, enabling the tidy addition of an mSATA SSD drive.

However if the mini.m seems a bit too big(!), then RISCOSbits second new product is for you. The si.zeRO is about a third of the volume, being based around a Raspberry Pi Zero with added USB and ethernet ports, all packaged in an acrylic case.

Here is a picture of the two machines, with a mouse for scale:
