Microsoft shows off tiny PCs running Windows 10 at Computex 2015

Windows 10 will run everywhere, even on the tiniest devices.

Microsoft Computex 2015

Microsoft shows off tiny PCs that we can expect to see running Windows 10. During the Computex 2015 keynote, the software giant unveiled a number of Windows 10 devices that we will see later this year, and perhaps the most noticeable form factors was a very tiny PC that fits inside of a power plug.

It’s name is Quanta Compute Plug and it’s a small form factor PC with a very interesting design, as all the components fit right into a power adapter. While we don’t know exactly the tech specs for Quanta, the PC offers two USB 3.0 ports and a HDMI port.

Microsoft details:

The new Compute plug from Quanta is a mini PC and power adapter in one that can be plugged into any outlet and connected to a TV to turn it into a smart computer that can be controlled using Cortana via a Bluetooth remote or headset.

Then there is a slightly bigger Windows 10 PC called Foxconn Kangaroo. This PC features a design pretty similar to a portable hard drive and Intel’s later Cherry Trail processor with all the necessary ports including USB and HDMI ports. Furthermore, this Windows 10 device has a 6-hour battery life and fingerprint reader to support Windows Hello.

These are just a few kinds of PCs we can expect to see running Windows 10, as we see Microsoft building its operating system to run on every hardware possible we will continue to see more creative designs coming to the market.
