BIOSTAR Racing P1 Mini-PC Review

Not everyone needs, or even wants, a full-sized desktop system for their home computing needs. The new Racing P1 from BIOSTAR certainly isn’t like most day-to-day Windows PCs, with its extremely compact design, it’s small enough to fit in your pocket! Not only is it tiny, it runs completely silent, thanks to its use of eMMC Flash Storage, and a fanless cooling design, it has no moving parts. Yet despite it being small and silent, it still packs a fairly powerful quad-core processor, GbE LAN, audio output, lots of USB ports, a memory card reader, RGB lighting and more!


“No enough space on your desk? RACING P1 comes with the built-in VESA mount, so it can be mounted on the back of LCD monitor easily, creating extra space for your room. RACING P1 comes with Intel Z8350 Quad Core 1.92GHz processor, the cutting edge 14nm technology CPU, and Intel HD graphics make tough task a piece of cake with unbelievably low energy consumption. At 0.29L and 285g weight, the RACING P1 is one of the smallest and lightest Mini-PC in the world – so small that it can put Quad-Core CPU, RGB LED, and 6 USBs all in your pocket! Traveling with RACING P1 is so easy.” – BIOSTAR

6 USBs, GbE LAN, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0, all full PC functions are in one.

There’s a lot of applications for a computer that’s so small. Perhaps you’re short on space or need something extremely portable. You could use it for an HTPC, to use Steam in-home Streaming from your main desktop, for your office space, as a second workstation and much more.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
