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. 

Conclusion

Many will love the Sapphire Edge HD2 Mini PC for its size, many will love it for its power saving, we love it for its load of features. Built-in HDMI, Wi-Fi and Windows 7 Ultimate are just the tip of the iceberg with this tiny box. One may think it would only be a good system for someone not looking for much in a PC. On the contrary, by connecting it to a big screen television or purchasing a lot of them for an office environment proves this is not a one dimensional little box.

Our Edge HD2 sample came with Windows 7 Ultimate pre-installed, but Sapphire does offer it with Free DOS only as well, giving the buyer options on what O/S they want to use. Considering the Ultimate version of Windows 7 is perhaps not the most ideal package for those in an office environment.

There aren’t too many things the Edge Mini PC is missing but if we had to think of another feature for the unit it would have to be Bluetooth. This would be great for the many wireless keyboards and mice out there, but also for a wireless headphone and mic for VoIP use.

The Sapphire Edge HD2 Mini PC has an MRSP of $399 for the Windows-based unit. We found several mini PCs on the web that were price quite a bit cheaper than the HD2, but most of them were barebones units that required a few key components to complete like memory and a power supply, and also not including Windows. In the end we felt the Edge was reasonably priced for it’s performance and included accessories.
