The quest for the ideal Mini-PC

By martinm, in Reviews and Tiny PC, march 01,2013.

Here at Yoctopuce, we are constantly looking for the best mini-PC to drive our devices. From time to time, we hear about one which seems to be a good candidate, so we buy one and test it, usually in one of our Friday projects. We mentioned most of them in this blog, but here is a short summary.
