HP is taking the the big, bulk desktop computers and shrinking them. At CES 2015, HP announced the Pavilion Mini and the Stream Mini. HP says these desktop PCs are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand but still deliver full desktop performance.
The Pavilion Mini comes with an Intel Pentium or Core i3 processor, Windows 8.1, up to 8 GB of RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage. It also comes with a DisplayPort, HDMI port and includes dual monitor support.
The Stream Mini is geared more towards cloud services. It comes with an Intel Celeron processor, 2 GB or RAM, 32 GB of SSD storage, 200 GB of Microsoft OneDrive Storage for two years and a $25 gift card for the Windows Store.
Both the HP Pavilion Mini and the HP Stream Mini are expected to be available on Jan. 14, 2015 on HP’s online store and Feb. 8, 2015 at select retailers. The HP Pavilion Mini starts at $319.99 and the HP Stream Mini starts at $179.99.
