The new Inspire mini PCs come in three variants: the most affordable one is powered by the Intel Core i3-7100U CPU priced at US$270, then follow the i5-7200U model for US$335, and the top of the line i7-7500U that costs US$450. Azulle does not provide memory and storage with these three barebones, so their price is slightly lower than Intel's NUCs.

Azulle is a new company based in Florida, USA that specializes in mini PCs and PC sticks. Its new Inspire mini PC line is designed as an alternative to Intel’s NUC desktops, and comes in three variants that are powered by Kaby Lake-U ultra-low voltage dual-core/4-thread processors.

All Inspire variants come without memory and storage units, so no OS either. However, Azulle does provide support for up to 32 GB of RAM, and as far as storage goes, the Inspire mini PCs include an M.2 slot for dedicated SSD, as well as a 2.5-inch bay for conventional HDDs or SSDs. There’s also support for an SD card slot that can add up to 256 GB of storage.

Standard specs for all variants also include:
•    HD Graphics 620 iGPU
•    Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.0
•    HDMI 2.0 connector
•    IR control sensor
•    Audio jack
•    Gigabit Ethernet jack
•    3x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 3.0 Gen1 Type-C ports
•    Kensington lock
•    Dimensions: 4.9 x 4.9 x 1.9 inches

The new mini PCs can be ordered straight from Azulle’s official site. The Core i3-7100U is selling for US$270, while the i5-7200U is available for US$335. The top of the line i7-7500U costs US$450, but is out of stock at the moment.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
