This new MINIX NGC-1 Windows 10 mini pc has a working memory of 4 GB DDR3 RAM. Samsung (which you can upgrade, if you want to)
What are the other improvements of DDR3, when compared to DDR2?
This tv box has a faster internal storage of no less than 128 GB. This internal storage is a Solid State Drive (SSD) by Toshiba. An SSD is very fast and shock proof. The Solid State Drive (SSD) is used increasingly more often in multiple laptops and computers. Why SSD and what is the difference compared to a 'regular' hard disk (HDD)? A Solid Stae Drive (SSD) is a digital type of storage, which uses memory such as Flash or SDRAM. A major difference with the traditional hard disks is that an SSD does not contain any moving parts, such as rotating disks. This makes the SSD much faster, quieter, and almost impossible to encounter system errors. The SSD can be upgraded if required.
The NCG-1 has a built-in 802.11 AC Wifi module. This module has 2 outlets to connect 2 external wifi antennas to. This will give you a very stable wifi connection.
The MINIX NGC-1 features Windows 10 Home and supports Linux Ubuntu. We advise to use the WINDOWS 10 Home, which is pre-installed on the MINIX NGC-1. Ubuntu not Installed!
What is Ubuntu?
Ubuntu is, like Windows, an operating system (OS) for a PC, mini pc or another device. The major advantage is that there are no viruses, which means you never have to worry about that again. Ubuntu makes your device safer, faster, easier, and more stable.
