Computex Taipei 2013 - We're sitting here at the Brass Monkey getting ready for the TweakTown Computex Party and VIA Technologies walks in with one of the neatest parts I've seen all day.

Let's have a look at the specifications.

It's not Hasewell overclocked to meltdown levels, but for most users that level of performance isn't necessary.

Personally I'm sold on the APC Paper. It has to be the first paper PC, at least this far south of China. The low-cost, low power unit will be available Q3 and cost less than $100.
