Panache launches pocket PC with Windows 10

Seems like the large desktop towers may soon become passé. After iBall unveiled its version of the Intel’s stick PC few weeks ago, another Indian company, has launched a similar product, called Pancahe AIR PC for R10K, and with a one-year replacement warranty.

For those of you, who may not be aware of the term stick PC, it’s a small device that resembles a USB dongle (but is slightly larger) and needs to be attached to a display — LED TV, monitor or a projector — via HDMI to work as PC. Think of it as your desktop tower compressed into a small USB stick, but without the monitor.

The device comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 (but can run Linx-distros as well). As for hardware, the Air PC comes with the popular Intel Atom Bay Trail (Intel Z3735F 1.33GHz) processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, HDMI Display Port, a Micro SD Card Slot, one USB 2.0 port, two micro USB ports, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n for wireless connectivity. It is available in two models offering 16GB (R9,999) and 32GB (R10,999) built-in storage. The specs of the Panache Air PC are same as the iBall Splendo, but Panache is offering a one-year replacement warranty with the product. However, iBall Splendo is priced lower at R8,999 and comes with bundled wireless mouse and keyboard.

NOTE: Panache is a new consumer tech brand promoted by Vardhaman Technology Pvt Ltd, an Indian company based in Mumbai that specializes in small form factor computing devices for the last 16 years.
