So Windows 10 is here now, and we're all slowly thinking of ways to implement the new OS. The folks at ECS have just added another option to the list with their announcement of the all-new LIVA mini PC family: the Core and the X2. These new ECS LIVA mini PCs will fully support Windows 10, with added features to fully take advantage of the new OS.
Both the ECS LIVA Core and the X2 will feature a slew of specifications you'd expect from any full featured PC, including an Intel Core M processor, solid state storage, and 802.11ac WiFi. Where the focus on Windows 10 comes from is the built-in dual microphones on both the Core and X2. This means they are ready out of the box for use with Cortana, Microsoft's voice activated assistant.
Pricing and availability of the ECS LIVA Core and X2 weren't included in the announcement. If you want more info, check out the press release below.
