Computers come in all shapes and sizes, where there are some who prefer having a PC with a large chassis for better cooling, the ability to fit larger motherboards and GPUs, while others might prefer something small that can just sit on their desk and don’t take up too much room.
If that’s you and you’re looking for a small form factor computer, PlanetPC might have something for you. At MWC 2023, the company took the wraps off their latest computer in the form of the XR series of mini Linux-powered computers.

There are two models to choose from, the XR1 and the XR2, with the XR1 being the more affordable option which features a four-core ARM-based chipset that comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The XR2, on the other hand, is powered by an 8-core ARM chipset which also features a Mali-G610 GPU and comes with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
While they might sound like rather basic computers, one unique feature of the XR series is that the chassis actually comes with a touchscreen panel on the front. This will allow users quick access to some of their computer settings without having to dive into the OS itself, so if you need to make changes on the fly, you’ll be able to do so from this touchscreen.
PlanetPC is currently trying to raise funds for its XR series of computers on Indiegogo, so if you’re interested, you can head on over for the details and to pledge your support.
