No one in modern times can deny the importance of using computers of all kinds and sizes. When I mention the word computers here, I talk about the concept of computers in general, not some form of computers. With continued technical and technological progress, computers have also continued to shrink and shrink in size while maintaining outstanding performance or even providing better performance, to the extent that we can now see ultra-thin, high-strength laptops, as well as rugged mobile phones. However, there is still a difference between these two types of devices, at least a difference in terms of strength, price and specifications. There is still a missing link felt by those who want to provide maximum power at the lowest price and the smallest size. This urgent need is supported by the need of companies and institutions as well as a small new type of computer that they can provide to their employees in a way that meets the conditions that we all mentioned. Hence the idea of ultra-compact computers, such as the LIVA Q1D computer in our hands today.
Well, first of all, let us talk about a few points, these points themselves deal with the types of computers in general. I know that many users may be aware of these things, but why don't we bring back some history together to see what it was like at first and where we came from?
We can say that computers in their general principle originated in the 1930s when the German military used what was then called the Telex system or network, which was a network of communication through messages that use devices called teleprinters. Shortly after this beginning, another attempt emerged in 1937 called Model K. It is a device created by the scientist George Stibitz where he created a large electrical circuit illustrating the principle of how to use logic circuits (logical circuits). This was then used to build a smart calculator in 1939. It is the same year that the German scientist Konrad Zuse made his Computer Z2 and then Z3.
David Packard and Bill Hewlett established their own company in Palo Alto County, California, later known as Hewlett-Packard or HP. The engineers then created their own HP 200A Audio Oscillator. The Walt Disney Company ordered eight 200B models to test recording equipment and speaker systems in the 12 specially equipped theatres that screened fantasia in 1940.
In 1939, Bell Telephone also completed the first complex calculation calculator, then known as CNC or Complex Number Calculator. After that, many computers developed with general objectives, specializing in certain functions, until the first large computer, ENIAC computing system, appeared in 1943 by John Mowgli and J. Presper Eckert at the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Due to its electronic technology, unlike the electromechanical technology used before, this computer was more than 1,000 times faster than any previous computer.
ENIAC has used wire and keyboard keys to do programming, the computer has occupied the unit more than 1,000 square feet, and used about 18,000 treadmill tubes weighing 30 tons. The funny thing is that at that time ENIAC was thought to have made more calculations over the ten years in which the computer was working than all the calculations made by all humanity up to that time. With the passage of years and the development of computers and the beginning of their shrinking size, the era of the 1970s, in which personal computers appeared in their known form today, but of course with very rudimentary specifications compared to what we see in our hands today ...
Over time, as we pointed out at the beginning, the need for computers that provide small size and power in computing without costing too much or even comes with a host of many features that the user may not need at all. From this point of view, the concept of microcomputers or Mini PC or as some call them integrated computers, as you get a full computer box in one piece that includes everything. These computers have not only evolved in the way we see today as a result of their small size. It is because of the manufacturing techniques themselves.
This type of computer now provides you with multi-current processors with built-in graphical processors and large-sized RAM with excellent volumes and also the ability to connect to internet networks at high speeds and high-resolution audio and image exits. You own a PC desktop but have limited features and average power. This is what companies and institutions need very much. We can even say some players or users who want a laptop that is less expensive than the laptop and can play simple games besides other essential functions.
ECS has launched a small pocket-sized, but multifunctional computer called liva Q1D. To meet the growing demand for home-based apps, liva Q1's computer series offers smart solutions for work and study from home, or even as a home entertainment device. The LIVA Q1 series of computers is also ideal for digital signage, customer apps or peripherals in cases of versatile use, including internal displays for public utilities such as schools or libraries, healthcare, hospitality, business and sales.
LIVA Q1D computers come with ultra-power-efficient Intel Pentium Celeron processors, equipped with eMMC 32/64 GB storage units and a MicroSD slot to expand external storage space. THE LIVA Q1 SERIES SUPPORTS BLUETOOTH 4.1 AND 802.11AC WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY, ALLOWING GREATER CAPACITY FOR FASTER INTERNET ENVIRONMENTS. It also features built-in Intel HD Graphics 500/505 graphics, for more vital support for playback premium 4K videos. The liva Q1 series design also comes with the ability to install a cooling fan in this small computer to keep the system cool and more stable.
Multiple ways to connect peripherals
THE LIVA Q1 SERIES INTEGRATES DIFFERENT TYPES OF INPUT AND OUTPUT TOOLS TO SUPPORT ALL YOUR NEEDS IN A SMALL COMPUTER SMALLER THAN YOUR MOUSE, INCLUDING USB 3.1 GEN1, 1 USB 2.0, HDMI AND GIGABIT LAN PORTS. In addition to HDMI interface support, the LIVA Q1D computer with DisplayPort interface is available to users to connect dual screens to speed up work efficiency. LIVA Q1L computers also come equipped with a 2 Gigabit LAN network to ensure stable access to your Internet and can be disconnected to internal and external Internet for security needs. These types of applications can also be used for families to set up nas network system and for companies to secure their confidential information.
Connecting the World
Due to the growing demand for Internet services, liva Q1 series offers a variety of solutions for both local network and wireless system. The computer supports Bluetooth 4.1 technology and wireless Internet 802.11ac.
[/COLOR][/COLOR]The technical specifications of this computer can be summarized as follows: Intel Apollo Lake Pentium N4200 SOC processor or Intel Apollo Lake Celeron N3350 SOC lpddr4 2GB/4GB memory and eMMC 32GB/64GB storage with the ability to install a 1x Micro Slot (Max. Max. 128GB) supporting 1x Gigabit LAN for internet connectivity and 1x DisplayPort 1.2 and 1x HDMI 2.0 along with Bluetooth 4.1 connector.
The computer also supports wireless internet with ac/b/g/n standard and supports flash connections through 2x USB 3.2 Gen1x1 (FRONT I/O) or 1x USB 2.0 Port sockets. Finally, the 74 x 74 x 34.6 mm microcomputer comes with Windows 10 64bit and Input power output: AC 100-240V, Output: DC 12V/2A.

Mini PC to where!
I do not think the conversation can take longer, as I mentioned at the beginning, the whole thing depends on the nature of the use in which you will need such computers, which are smaller and more powerful than before. You will also find more powerful and violent versions of these compact computers, but if you want them for traditional office work, internet browsing and other primary and straightforward uses, what more than one computer you might need like liva Q1D!
Although it started in sizes comparable to the sizes of football pitches and weighing equal to the weights of high-rise towers, we now comfortably have technologies and computers in our hands faster than those that began the technological revolution, and in sizes not exceeding the grip of one hand. So what is next?
