Biostar Racing P1: The tiny racer that can

By Chester Labaco - 25 Jan 2017

Introduction

The popularity of mini Pcs is gaining through the past few years. With the introduction of cool, low power chipsets, it is no longer required to build a PC if you just want to browse the Internet, office work, or a dedicated streaming device.

Biostar is often seen at the forefront of budget-friendly devices. From their motherboards and even their recently announced mechanical keyboard, they have always given consumers one of the best performance-to-price ratio in the business. This is also their approach with their new mini PC, the Biostar Racing P1. With a small footprint and the capability to be mounted to any VESA compatible monitor in the market, let’s take a look at how this tiny racer performs.
