The ECS Liva series are well deserving of the moniker small form factor, as they are generally a bit larger than a deck of poker cards or two. The newest Q2 is no exception, at 70x70x33.4mm (2.75×2.75×1.3") it could theoretically fit in your pocket, though like your phone, that is probably not the best place for it. This new model upgrades the APU to a dual core Celeron N4000 with HD Graphics 600, 4GB of LPDDR4-2400 and 32 GB of eMMC flash for local storage.
TechPowerUp put the wee box through a variety of tests, including streaming video from various sources as that is what the Liva Q2 is most likely to be used for and it performed admirably, though the 4GB is a bit of a problem when using Chrome.
"ECS has upgraded the LIVA Q line with the new Q2. This ultra-tiny system really is a fully functional PC that will fit into your pocket. This latest release features not only a faster processor but also HDMI 2.0, which makes it the perfect HTPC that can also handle daily tasks and light workloads."
