These Intel Atom-powered Windows 10 tablet/mini desktop PC hybrids come with 4 GB RAM/128 GB storage and 8 GB RAM/128 GB storage in silver, gray, or gold. Prices start at $699 USD, and early Indiegogo backers should get the first units by the end of May.

Desktop PCs are not dead yet, they are only turning into something new. The new Ockel Sirius A and Sirius A Pro hybrids seem to show the right path to follow - a compact, yet fully functional tablet that features a full set of connectivity options and the hardware required to run Windows 10 without breaking a sweat.

Ockel Sirius A and Sirius A Pro come with similar features, and they are not cheap. These are their specs and features:

  • Processor: Intel Atom x7-Z8750 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB or 8 GB; 64 GB or 128 GB internal storage and microSD slot
  • Display: 6-inch glossy multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Camera: front facing 720p webcam
  • Connectivity: Intel dual-band wireless-AC 3165, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB Type-C, RJ45 LAN, 2XUSB 3.0
  • Operating system: Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro
  • Battery/Autonomy: 3,000 mAh lithium-polymer; up to 3 hours video playback
  • Colors: silver, gold, gray

This project has been crowdfunded on Indiegogo and managed to raise four times as much money as the initial goal. Early backers paid $549 USD for the Sirius A and $649 USD for the Pro version. First units are expected to hit their backers by the end of May, so we are waiting for the open sales (for higher prices) to start this summer if everything goes as planned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
