    Hi! I’m italian and I am really interested to this mini pc, above all becouse i really love the web camera!But now I have some questions to you:

    I have watched your video on Yt, and I have already seen how camera works, but not how it works on skype, or other video calling apps, i wanna ask you if it is a good product, and what is its behavior in low light (if you can post some videos i would be grateful).

    the other question is this: how can we update this mini pc using zip file linked in your post?

    I am sorry for my bad english, but i hope you will want to answer me!

      I have not yet tested the web cam using Skype, but the image quality is very poor as expected.
      On the positive side the web cam is quite sensitive in low light conditions.

      I have updated the post with a mini upgrade guide with links to upgrade tool, hope it helps.

        Tnx for the answers! The quality is really poor? I am expected that it was not capable to record movie for cinemas, but webcam seemed to be its peculiarity, and you are telling me that it is horrible? I will never understand these products…

        You can tell me anything about software reliability?
        You have had any freeze?
        Full hd videos were well reproduced?
        Would you recommend this mini pc for use?

        tnx you!

    Hi, do you know if the firmware update changed the app partition size? I saw in the video that it was only one gig which makes the device cute and almost great but not very fersatile as it can only handle a few installed apps.
