World’s Smallest Mini PC Kit
All that's needed is an Operating System.

Intel® Bay Trail-M SoC Processor
Featuring Intel® Bay Trail-M SoC (System-on-a-Chip) processor, based on the new low-power consumption microarchitecture "Silvermont" Providing the fan-less thermal design with better acoustic performance, LIVA is a great Mini PC with the advantages of high performance and power saving.

eMMC Storage Technology
eMMC, Embedded Multi-Media Card, comprised of both flash memory and a flash memory controller, which is often used for mobile devices. eMMC greatly reduces the response time and is suitable for high performance applications.
The ultra-thin eMMC allows LIVA Mini PC Kit to be palm-sized small.

M.2 Socket Wireless Communication
(WiFi 802.11b/g/n & Bluetooth 4.0 Combo Card)
The evolution of onboard interface M.2 socket provides a better and faster standard for connecting NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor), provides a better and faster standard for connection and expansion. LIVA adopts the latest M.2 Interface with the WiFi / Bluetooth Combo Card for Better wireless communication.

Low Voltage DRAM
LIVA Integrates low voltage Double Data Rate III Synchronous DRAM, usually used for Notebook PC solution, which is 8% power saving than regular DRAM, DDR3L is ideally suited for the main memory application, which requires large memory density, high bandwidth and low power operation.

Dual Graphics Displays
With HDMI and D-Sub support, LIVA provides not only two independent output displays, offering a wise choice of home entertainment or multi-display applications, but also wide coverage support of both digital and analogue displays.

Power Saving
LIVA only uses about as much power as just a light bulb!
Equipped with Low Voltage DRAM and Intel Bay Trail-M SoC with Micro USB power supply design, which only takes 5V / 15W of total power consumption, LIVA brings great energy saving ability and the most efficient performance.

Mobility-Walking PC
Seriously, there is nothing comparable to the mobility of LIVA Mini PC Kit. Based on low power consumption of Intel Bay Trail processor, LIVA can be booted up and operated simply by a power bank.

40-Second Set Up
With screw-free design of LIVA Mini PC Kit, users can easily self-assemble their own PC and finish all the processes within 40 seconds.
And more importantly, it’s so fun and easy!

Living Room Shift
The days of bedroom desktop is over! Living room is back to the centre of home entertainment. It’s not necessary to stick with your 15" desktop if you can turn your 50" Smart TV into a PC.

Style Matters
Do you hide your bulky PC and bunch of cables behind the desk?
Why can’t it be part of your home decoration?
A stylish Mini PC might be the solution.

Excessive Performance
Most of the time, the performance provided by CPU and Chipset is redundant for most of the users.
Why can’t we have a nice PC with much smaller size?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liva Excellent mini computer Does most that a tower or laptop computer will do, HDMI graphics and really quick, I have added XBMC to my Liva and can use it as a home entertainment system. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little piece of kit Really nice little device, had some trouble installing anything other than ubuntu based distro's though. I wanted it for a mini network service box and wanted to put untangle, pfsense or something similar. Couldn't get any to boot from USB (even fedora refused). Possibly UEFI problem, used ubuntu server in the end, which is OK but not really what I wanted. Didn't try windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice kit The kit is very well designed and high quality. I like it a lot. Going to build the OS today and test performance - will be trying Windows 8.1 and Linux.

It doesn't have a hard drive It uses card storage eMMC Storage Technology eMMC, Embedded Multi-Media Card, comprised of both flash memory and a flash memory controller, which is often used for mobile devices. eMMC greatly reduces the response time and is suitable for high performance applications. It should be possible to install whatever O/S you wish.

I asked: I see from the manufacturer's website that there is also a version with 4GB of RAM. Billie replied: At this time i am unaware of any plans of getting the 4gb version. Does the 2GB RAM use up all the memory slots?

Asked by: SimonR
This does not have RAM slots the Ram is built into the board.

This version has 2 GB RAM.  I see from the manufacturer's website that there is also a version with 4GB of RAM.  When do you plan to sell that one?

Asked by: SimonR
Does the 2GB RAM use up all the memory slots, or would it be possible to buy that unit and add another 2GB RAM?
