I like tiny PCs. I mean fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand tiny. Quite a few have been on these pages already, such as ECS' LIVA units and ASRock's Beebox. However, these ultra-light PCs, while consuming tiny amounts of power, also offer tiny performance when compared to many people's needs. If you surf the Internet, no problem, but most offer limited internal storage, meaning that at some point you're either going to be adding in a USB device or they simply aren't your main PC.
Working together with Intel, ASRock has come up with an entirely new PC form factor, Mini-STX. This new size of motherboard allowed ASRock to slam PC desktop and laptop features together into the tiny size of the DeskMini's 154mm2 x 80mm. In that small package, you can add dual 2.5" SATA devices, an M.2 drive, two SO-DIMMs, and a 65W Skylake desktop CPU and cooler. That's right, an Intel i7-6700 can slide right in too, so you can get nearly the best in performance Intel's Skylake CPUs offer in a package that's not that much bigger than Intel's NUC platform.
Rolling ultra-small computing in with high performance CPU capability and high-speed storage is something that is worth considering! Want a 2000 MB+ M.2 drive in your tiny PC? ASRock's DeskMini 110 can do that! USB 3.1 Type-C? Yes, it has that too. If you don't need a GPU for gaming, ASRock's DeskMini110 has pretty much everything you need!
