Small Form Factor PC Plugs Directly Into Wall Outlet

"AMD is apparently using the LiveBox Mini to showcase its lineup of low-power sipping APUs, as the company doesn't typically build or design complete systems. Perhaps this is somewhat of a form factor blueprint for computer manufacturers to follow."

Now here is something a little different. Imagine you want a small form factor PC but don't really want even a small PC to sit on your desk. How about one that plugs directly into an outlet? This small unit features 1 GB of RAM and a 64 GB SSD. It also boasts two USB ports, HDMI output, Ethernet port, memory card slot and SIM card slot.

AMD's 5 Watt CPU Wants to Be In Your Next Windows Tablet

Engadget has a brief news item that says AMD has a 5 watt version of their Fusion APU (that's a CPU plus a GPU for those of you who haven't been paying attention lately) designed for x86 tablets. Meaning, tablets and slates running Windows. With Microsoft's move to port Windows to ARM, is AMD too late? I don't think so - there's a pressing need for low-power hardware to run Windows in a variety of form factors, and x86 compatibility it still critical for application use. What I haven't seen anyone do yet is do a power consumption comparison between AMD's new low-power APUs and the comparable offering from Intel in the form of an Atom CPU and an Intel HD GPU. I'd guess AMD would win that, but I'd like to know for sure. Anyone seen anything like that yet?
