The THINPC Mini PC is a desktop PC developed with the aim of taking the top position of “portable productivity tools” from “notebook PC”. If you take it with a portable keyboard and mouse to a remote work rental space equipped with a monitor, you can use it as a more productive tool than a laptop.
THINPC has started a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter for the marketing of Mini PCs.

For many years, laptops have reigned as the best portable productivity tool. It was equipped with an input device such as a keyboard and a touchpad, an output device called a monitor, and a power supply called a battery. It has been thought that desktop PCs will not replace laptops when it comes to mobile use, although there are drawbacks such as small monitors.
This situation is here and it is slowly changing. Desktop PCs, which used to be housed in giant closets filled with unnecessary gaps, have now become compact as “screenless smartphones” and can be carried around. USB Type-C power is possible without a heavy AC adapter. Along with the emergence of remote work spaces equipped with monitors, some people are adopting desktop PCs as “portable productivity tools”.
THINPC Mini PC is a product developed with the aim of riding this trend. Length 117 x Width 90 x Thickness 30mm, which is shorter and a little thicker than a smartphone. As mentioned above, wherever there is a monitor, you can use a portable keyboard and mouse to get the job done.
