Want a low-cost $50 Android PC? That’s exactly what VIA is now offering with their Android PC System (APC), which comes in at just 7-inches, featuring an ARM board that comes with a customized Android install. The APC will arrive in July and features a VIA ARM11 SoC, 512MB of RAM, 2GB flash storage, VGA, HDMI, speaker/microphone jacks, ethernet, microSD, and an impressive 4 USB ports.

The board only uses 4 watts when idle or 13.5 under max load, so this is certainly a great choice if you are looking for a low-power option. While I wouldn’t want to use this as my main PC or anything, for use as a hobbyist device, a child’s computer, or even some kind of customized vehicle computer, it could be very useful. At only $50, it’s hard to really feel like you’ve ‘wasted’ money, even if you just buy it to toy around with.

The shear amount of ports on this thing, such as 4 USB, is pretty incredible. I could be wrong, but I highly doubt you’ll get too much out of the video experience with this little guy, still, it’s pretty cool that they threw in an HDMI port. While this isn’t at all alone in the growing market of tiny, low-cost PCs, Via is a reasonably good brand and these are pretty decent specs for just $50.
