Sapphire Edge HD2 Mini PC

Sapphire Edge HD Mini PCSapphire’s Edge HD2 Mini PC is packed with all the features for daily computing like a 1.8GHz dual core Atom processor (with Hyper Threading), 2GB DDR3 memory, Wi-Fi and support for 1080 video viewing through HDMI. The Edge HD2 looks to be not only the smallest PC but the ideal candidate for a companion to your big screen television. 

Closer look

Sapphire managed to cram a lot of goodies in the little frame of the Edge HD2. If you were to stand the small tower upright it would barely reach 7.5 inches, and weighing in at just over a pound with everything pre-installed.

Just what is inside the Edge HD2? Well, how is this for starters: an Intel Atom D525 (dual core) 1.8GHz processor, a Samsung 320GB SATA II hard drive, Realtek RTL8191SU built-in Wi-Fi, 2GB of DDR3 memory and NVIDIA ION2 graphics. Such a system should be plenty for the steaming of video, some causal gaming, web browsing and definitely office work.

The entire PC is about the size of a small paperback book and made of black rubber and plastic. The unit is designed to be able to stand upright with the aid of a small black pedestal or laid on its side.

The rear of the system has all the plugs for your wired connectivity. There is a single VGA and HDMI video plugs, Realtek 10/100/1000 LAN, dual USB ports, AC/DC plug, with 3.5mm MIC and headset jacks to complete the list.

The top of the PC has only a single button for power, doubling as a power LED as well. Just below the power button, but not a button itself, is the HDD activity light.

Sitting on the edge of the Edge are two more USB 2.0 ports which covertly reside behind a flexible rubber door.
