GIGABYTE BRIX Takes Center Stage in the Indian Mini-PC Market
Indian consumers make GIGABYTE No. 1 in the Mini-PC space
While individual home users, who are cost-conscious, are increasingly finding it worth a try, it’s the institutional users that are making notable impressions in the mini-PC market. The GIGABYTE BRIX is finding growing usage from institutional customers in a variety of roles including, banks, educational institutions, hospitals, departmental stores, and even shopping malls.
Among these user segments, the interest and demand is the highest from banks and other financial services organisations.
Even in non-metro cities, there’s an emerging awareness about the mini-PC concept among institutional users. For example in Kanpur, in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, mini-PCs are being sought by several educational institutions, stated Ravi Pandey of Kanpur-based Sun Corporation, an IT hardware reseller.
“The education sector is always on the quest for saving power, space and IT expenditure, and products like GIGABYTE BRIX come across as a practical option,” he said.
In a small business, profit margins can be tight and all spending needs to be carefully accounted for. For these smaller firms, the GIGABYTE BRIX proves its value for company savings with its low ASP.
“The user segments going for GIGABYTE BRIX also include small offices that can make significant savings on manpower by installing the product in their premises,” said Sandeep Jain of Mek Peripherals, a Mumbai-based GIGABYTE Premium Partner.
Even IT hardware resellers are finding GIGABYTE BRIX to be a cost-effective option for their work places. Like Mumbai-based Shri Sai Enterprise, which has been using an Intel Core i7 processor based model for almost a year, to take care of its office information management requirements.
But what is it about GIGABYTE BRIX that is attracting these users?
Though this smart solution is small enough to sit in your palm, it gives you a desirable combination of optimal CPU and GPU performance, peripheral connectivity options, power consumption, and of course, price.
Small Size, Big Performance
Thanks to its small size, you can mount it behind your monitor or even hide within your home entertainment setup. The BRIX also includes a mounting bracket that allows you to easily mount it behind an HDTV or monitor, so that it remains hidden away. This allows an effortless way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-fledged PC.
It comes with a pre-installed Wi-Fi Mini PCIe module, a power adapter and cable which comply with local standards. You have the liberty to configure the system to your specific need by selecting your preferred system memory and digital storage option.
GIGABYTE BRIX includes a M.2 module offering IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi and the latest Bluetooth 4.2, providing connectivity for low power Bluetooth devices and peripherals, as well as allowing users to easily connect mobile devices.
Considering the Indian penchant for low-cost, high-result solutions, the compact mini-PC is here to stay. So stay tuned for more models of GIGABYTE BRIX catering to different user categories.
