Computer called the latte panda, which has been sent to me for review by my happy friends at da robot. Now the let a panda has two standout features: firstly, it’s based on an Intel processor; and secondly, not only does it come with its own onboard flash storage. It comes pre installed with a full copy of Windows. 10. Yes, this is a single board computer bit like a Raspberry Pi when its Intel based and it comes pre installed with Windows. So with all that explained, let’s go and do what should hopefully be a very exciting unboxing right Here. I am with this tiny black box of Windows, computing goodness, and just before I open this thing up, I thought I should tell you there’s two versions of the latte panda. This is the standard version. This has got two gigabytes of RAM 32 gigabytes of flash storage and it costs a hundred and nine dollars, which is about 83 pounds or 99 euros, at least at the moment, there’s also an enhanced version of a lot a panda. This has got four gigabytes of RAM 64 gigabytes of flash storage and costs 1′ dollars anyway, that’s enough about the price. This is the box. This is where the back of the box in case you’re interested all the box, but I think now let’s get the thing open. I think this is a sliding box, so it is, it is and ER. Oh there we are isn’t it nice to see a new single board.

Computer and the disc got ta, get it out. Doesn’T want to come out there, it is it coming out there. We are, as usual, a little anti static bag. It doesn’t need a pair of scissors, but fortunately I brought mr. scissors with me, so I can get into their little bag here, cut that at the top, so I can always get back in to use it again. If I need to – and here we are here is the good crackle come out come out come out here is via latte. Panda are Marvis new Intel based single board computer now, under this very shiny shield as I’m sure you would guess. We have the processor and the processor on this board is an intel cherry trail, z8, 300 quad, core Atom, CPU and it’s got a base weakened to your 1.4 4 gigahertz, boosting to 1.8 4 gigahertz. So we’ve got up to one point: eight four gigahertz of quad core processing power on this board; it’s a pretty powerful little board with the processor. We also have Intel graphics, intel, gen8, graphics, supporting up to DirectX 11 point 2 and running into base frequency of 200 megahertz were boosting up to 500 megahertz, and on top of that, as you can also probably see written on top of the shield, we have a 2 gigabytes of ddr3 memory now, on top of that standard, Intel infrastructure on this board, there’s also a co processor and the coprocessor here is an 80 mega 30 to you for, and some of you might be thinking what on earth is that but it’s actually a Microcontroller coprocessor, it means we’ve got effectively an arduino built in to this board, so we’ve actually got on this board here.

Gpio pins standard GPIO pins for an Arduino. So if you want to use this to control external devices as a microcontroller to build projects that use a windows based platform, also have microcontroller built in you’ve, got it here on the lot. A panda and you’ve also got on this board some. What they call sensor connectors, which is basically the Arduino connectors taken out to other headers, so you can connect them very easily and then, on top of all that, you’ve also got over here. Some GPIO pins for the Intel processor, so you’ve actually got access to the Intel chip, as well as the coprocessor arduino trip all on this board. So if you do want to do a microcontroller type of project, you’ve got very, very good connectivity and hardware here on the lot, a panda if we move around the sides of the board you’ll see on this end, we’ve got an HDMI connector for HD, video and We’Ve also got 2 USB to ports, but in addition to that, we’ve also got a USB 3 port. Yes, finally, we’ve got USB 3 port on a single board computer, and I really like this configuration this number of ports, because it means we’ve got 2 USB 2 port. So you can connect in say a keyboard and a mouse, but you’ve still got a USB port free after that for some storage and it’s also a fast port it’s USB 3. If we move around here on the one side of the board, in addition to the Arduino connection, the GPIO pins for the processor we’ve got here, we’ve also, you can hit see here the chip which gives us onboard Wi, Fi and Bluetooth 4, so that’s, obviously very Handy – and you might just see here – we’ve also got connection for a Wi Fi antenna.

There was a Wi Fi antenna in the Box. I just didn’t get it out in all my excitement and also on this side. We’Ve got a couple of switches reset and power switches for the moving on round again, on the other end of the board, we have a wired, Ethernet connector. This is, I think, I’m pretty sure, 100 megabit as net, and we also got an audio jack for connecting and a headset things like that. We’Ve also, then got a microSD slot. So, in addition to the 32 gigabytes of on board storage, here, you can add in a micro, SD card for more storage and then next to that something you may have suspected. This is a standard micro, USB connector, which takes five volt input. This is how you power the lot a panda moving around to our fourth and final side. We can see again the sensor connectors I pointed out earlier, but also a connector here for an LCD panel LCD screen and also a touch panel for that screen and in case you’re, wondering DF. Robot do sell LCD screen for the lot a panda and they also sell the overlay touch panel. If you want to connect that in as well, and so there we are, this is in all of its glory with all of its hardware. The lot a panda, an awful lot of processing power on a very tiny ball and, as I said at the start of this video, not only does this have 32 gigabytes of on board storage, so you don’t have to add an SD memory card to get started.

It’S even got a full copy of Windows, 10 pre installed, and so now, as you would guess, I’m going to get out some peripherals get out of power, supply and we’ll boot. This thing up so I’ve now got everything connected up. We’Ve got a mouse and keyboard plugged into USB I’ve got HDMI plugged in for them. Full monitor and I’ve also got a USB power supply plugged in, and I should point out, you need at least a 2 amp power supply to power. The lot a panda – and I thought to have also connected in here via the Wi Fi antenna, so we can have Wi Fi connection now I have to point out it’s a two phase process to get this going. First of all, you have to connect in the power. Obviously I’ve connected the power there, and I now turn on the power adapter here. The switch there you’ll see was a little blue. Light comes on. The board has to what it called initialize. So you have to wait till that blue light is on it’s flashing thing there. It has now it’s now gone off again, so once the board powered up, we can now boot it by pressing the footage switch down here and hopefully, if we hold it in, something will happen and we’re now, hopefully booting into Windows or latte panda logo and hopefully We’Ll ER, oh here we are yes. We’Ve arrived at windows booting on a latte Panda welcome to windows will always welcome to windows.

I would you say this isn’t, my first boot I had to go and do a bit of messing around to get my recording equipment to where we windows always have to do that, but other than that this is my first boot and I’ve. Also a connected up. Wi Fi, so I know that that works as well, hopefully we’re now arriving in Windows 10, and here we are on a Windows, 10 desktop running on a single board computer. I still find that a fascinating idea, let alone something it’s actually working, but as you can see, if we go down here, we’ve got a proper windows, don’t compute here all stuff, Microsoft. Local forces in Windows, 10 is going on on this. Computer we’ve got an Arduino icon. There is my dueo package pre installed. If you want to do some Arduino type work with all those a GPIO pins, not something I’ve tried myself yet I’m sure many people will like to play with this there. It is local waiting to be a to be played with let’s. Try there the edge browser someone has to try the edge browser once a month at least one person. The world has to actually run it and let’s try going to explaining computers. Calm, yes, I’ve been there before as well, and it and it works. So we’ve proved. We are definitely running Windows 10 on a a single board computer, which i think is a fantastic thing to be doing.

The latte Panda is clearly a dream, come true for everybody who wants a single computer, but they wanted to run Windows now. The only thing you might be asking having watched this video is what about cooling, because it’s got quite a powerful Intel based processor for a small board, there’s no heatsink on the top there’s no fan, and I can report that if you turn the board over after It’S been running, you’ll see a lot of metal on the bottom that does get rather hot, but I’ve had no problems with stability running it on a very warm day today. So so far, no issues with cooling in terms of performance and if there were any issues, we’re calling I’m sure I could find a way to address them in a future. Video are looking a bit more detail at the Panda, comparing it to a Raspberry Pi 3, which is an obvious comparison. I hope I think to make, but now that’s it for this time.
