Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC

 

When you think of Sapphire you think of video cards and more recently motherboards. Along with expanding into the motherboard market, today, Sapphire introduced its newest product the Edge-HD Mini PC. With a dual core Intel Atom D510 and a Nvidia ION 2...

Sapphire has done an amazing job with the EDGE-HD and it will be really interesting what they do in the future with the Fusion APU. For now, though, this is just a great first step in the Mini-PC market for them and you can see it appealing to people...

Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC

 

Extremely tiny PC designed for solid home use.

As multimedia technologies and uses become more prolific and part of our daily lives, consumers are looking for products that fill more than one role. Historically, small motherboards with integrated chips and graphics have typically been, well,...

Sapphire Edge HD Mini PC (nettop)

 

One of the smallest PCs we've ever seen makes for an ideal media centre.

Ultra compact size ; Stylish Design ; Full HD video playback

Intel Atom dual core CPU still slow ; Price doesn't include Windows ; ION netbook arguably makes more sense

Plugging in the Edge HD requires little more than connecting the power cord (which has a small power brick) to a wall socket and running an HDMI cable to a monitor or (ideally) TV. Where it gets tricky is Sapphire has taken the unusual step of shipping...

Sapphire - EDGE-HD

 

At first sight, the EDGE-HD from Sapphire looks more like a miniature media-streaming device. Small, slim and coated in a black, rubberised casing, it's hard to believe this is in fact a fully-functional PC. Given its ...

If you're looking for an ultra-small PC, Sapphire's EDGE-HD will undoubtedly appeal. Its simple-yet-attractive design impresses, and the inclusion of an HDMI output makes it perfect for use as a home theatre PC. However, you're clearly paying a premium...

Sapphire Edge HD

 

Review Looking more like a router than a PC, Sapphire's Edge-HD makes the recently-reviewed Zino HD 410 from Dell look positively huge. Sapphire rather hesitantly states that it “believes” the Edge-HD to be the smallest PC in the world. Whether or not...

Super small and quiet, there’s plenty to like about Sapphire’s miniature Edge-HD, but I think it’s over priced. The entry-level Dell Zino HD 410 [2], for example, is just £50 more expensive and comes with a faster AMD II X2 V160 processor, built-in...

Sapphire claims that this is the "smallest PC in the world". We get out our tape measure and put it to the test

Aside from its size it's unremarkable and, thanks to its lack of OS, not as good value as it might look

Expert review by:

Sapphire Edge-HD

 

The humble nettop can only be improved in so many ways, with the Intel Atom processor and integrated graphics restricting it to basic tasks and media playback, so it's natural that manufacturers have been looking to innovate elsewhere. Sapphire has...
