A huge upgrade to your computer is in this gloriously tiny package...
Time to ditch the large desktop. We’ve got a full Ryzen 7 computer in a palm-sized form factor.
Not everyone wants to be bothered with setting up big, complicated, and expensive tower desktop PCs.
A robust palm-sized desktop PC
A high-performance AMD Ryzen-based line of budget mini desktop PCs, XULU XR1 is specifically-designed to take heavy loads, yet fits in the palm of your hand. Say goodbye to bulky desktops and hello to a tiny compact and powerful device.
The XULU XR1 Series is perfect for every need and budget; be it for the office, for gaming, education, programming, photo and video editing, 3D modeling, watching 4k videos, industrial applications and a lot more.
Despite its diminutive size, the XR1 is a total performer making it ideal for doing many tasks from office-productivity, to demanding tasks like video-editing and even gaming.
WHERE IS IT GOOD FOR? Aside from having a small footprint for your desk, the XR1's small form factor makes it easy to carry, allowing users to take their computer with them whenever and wherever they go.
WANT HIGH PERFORMANCE?
Despite its diminutive size, the XR1 is a total performer, making it ideal for demanding tasks, even video-editing and gaming.
IS IT UPGRADEABLE?
Yes! We designed the XULU XR1 so you can upgrade your storage and memory as your workflow demands for more, making it an excellent investment in the long term.
With other mini PC devices, you are stuck with the storage configurations that the manufacturer sets them. Here at XULU, we are giving you the freedom to upgrade them yourself. We also made sure you get the fastest option in the market: NVME. Compared to the older SATA, NVME boasts faster reads and writes as it uses PCIe lanes to transfer data.
Depending on your needs, you have the freedom to change how much total DDR4 RAM capacity you can install on your XULUXR1 as we made them user-upgradeable anytime you wish.
Having not just one, but two RAM slots mean you can choose whether to change to just one stick of RAM, or take advantage of DUAL-CHANNEL MODE, which, when two RAM sticks of the same frequency and capacity are installed,allows the processor to get more work done in significantly much less time that it usually requires.
SOME OF THE BEST FEATURES OF THE XR1
DUAL HDMI 2.1
The XULU XR1 has 2 HDMI2.1 at the back, each one capable of up to 48Gbps (a 30Gbpbs advantage over HDMI2.0), lets you connect 2 4K monitors. There is one DisplayPort over USB-C port out front that is also capable of outputting up to 8K video with audio, making a total of 3 displays for the full triple-monitor experience.
MORE PORTS, MORE CAPABILITY! When it comes to getting the job done, having the more options to connect different peripherals to plug in to your computer is a must. Around the back you will find the barrel-connector power socket, along with 7 input/output ports, plus 4 ports in front for easy access. Want to go wireless? The XULU XR1 has full wireless connectivity so you don’t have to reach for cables when you don’t have to. We also added stereo microphones in front for Skype and other messenger calls, video-conferencing, and for speaking out commands to Windows’ Cortana.
Although WIFI 6 is already incredibly fast, WIFI 6e takes it a step further by "extending" (thus, the E at the end) what Wi-Fi 6 can do to the 6 GHz band. WIFI 6E extends the capability so transmission and reception becomes faster, with more bandwith, and with less latency.
Communication using computers go beyond keyboards and mice. Voice calls, voice messaging, video conferencing, even yelling out commands to Cortana on Windows, all need a microphone for these functionalities to work, so we added not one, but two microphones which can be utilized for stereoscopic applications/recording, among other things.
DEDICATED 3.5MM AUDIO PORT
Other companies just want to do away with this port. We think it is still relevant in today's requirements, so we placed one readily available for you right out front! Plug in speakers, or a wired headset for voice calls when you need to have as close to zero-latency as possible versus a wireless setup.
FRONT OLED DISPLAY
Get relevant real-time information at a glance. View the processor status, temperature, fan speed, time, and many others using the front OLED status display without having to open system programs or switch views on your screen.
YOUR CHOICE OF OPERATING SYSTEM
Depending on your need, you can install the Operating System you prefer.
Yes! Having current-generation components that have the ability to out-perform those of its bigger tower PC counterparts, the XR1 is the perfect tower PC replacement. And even if you still plan to keep your tower PC on your desk, having the tiny XR1 gives you the advantage of a second PC doing other tasks, or even just for storage. The dual-HDMI 2.1 ports at the back and the DisplayPort over USB-C in front allow for multi-monitor setup for better and faster workflow when multi-tasking. It's a total dream setup!
WHO IS IT FOR?
Whether you're a student, a professional, a scientist, a programmer or video editor, or just about anyone who needs a computer, no matter the task, the XR1 can handle the job. The list of use-cases is just downright impressive.
Below is a shortlist of industries, places, fields and applications of the XULU XR1:
Education, Point-Of-Sale, Gaming, Productivity, Signages, Government, Industry, Manufacturing, Graphic Design, Construction, Programming, Video Editing, Training, Entertainment, Banking, Data Entry, Mapping, Medical, Hospitals, Blogging, Web Development, Animation, Project Management, Accounting, Science Labs, 3D Modelling, 3D Rendering, Publishing, Arts, Transport, Military, Security, Product Testing, Business, Navigation, Robotics, Astronomy, Mining, Architecture, Engineering, Cryptocurrency, Kiosks, Camping, Laboratory, Home-Office, Living Room, Kitchen, Yacht, Garden, Guest House, Kids’ Room, Garage, and many more!
Because some people need more computing power than others...
We understand that every person has his own specific need, so we made not one, but three models to choose from. And...
WHAT'S YOUR FLAVOR?
Pick up one or two or more!
Choose from 7 colors: Cobalt Blue, Lumi Green, Fire Engine Red, Mandarin Orange, Storm White, Battleship Grey, and Obsydian Black. There's one color that will fit perfectly in any environment you intend to place it in.
Here are just some of the advantages of the XR1 over the competition.
The XR1 is the first Tiny PC to boast an OLED display. Robust I/O such as 7 USB ports, dual HDMI ports, Ethernet port, dual mics makes the XR1 one of the tinniest compueters with such robust port selection.
Large turbine fan, copper fin heatsink with 2 heatpipes and special airflow design ensures the XR1 has an optimal cooling system.
We wanted to allow the user to be able to replace things like RAM and SSD, so we gave the XR1 a modular design. No on-board DDR, just open the unit up and replace the memory if your choosing.
Modular design means you'll be able to access the internals for things like cleaning, replacing the thermal paste, changing memory, or for DIY projects.
We even added in back-lit LED decorative panels on the side.
Lastly, we hope that you appreciate the design and craftsmanship put into making the Xulu. We spent many months on prototyping and adjusting the tooling. From the front fascia design to the aluminum housing, top grill and back grill, we refined every aspect of the XR1.
All internals such as the heatsink, mechanical engineering, PCB and all components were optimized for superior performance.
HOW XULU XR1 PC CAME TO BE
The XULU XR1 aims to replace large desktop PCs, be capable of video-editing, do 3D design and animation work, handle triple-A games, take the center-stage running multiple 4K resolution monitors, has the customizability of a full desktop PC, and yet-- costs only a mere fraction of high-end gaming laptops.
We set out to make a tiny PC that not only takes on the demands of office-productivity or work-from-home requirements, but also have all the capabilities of high-end desktops and gaming laptops.
So we went to work, finding the best computer configuration that meets and exceeds your demands. This new tiny PC needs to have the best parts and materials, be customizable, stable on other platforms, yet retain the compactness and portability that a palm-sized computer can possibly be. And still manage to look stunning in person and in pictures.
So now, we present to you, the XULU XR1. We are still in awe of how jam-packed with absolute awesomeness this tiny computer is, you'll know it the soonest you get your hands on one, it just feels incredible!
CREATINGTHE XULU XR1
We've spent over a year and a half designing, prototyping, testing and producing the XULU XR1. We have already ironed out many of the kinks in both hardware and software so we should have a smooth production run after this campaign finishes. All goes well, we are aiming to begin shipping by September August.
Help us make the XULU XR1 PC a reality, your help in making this project transition from design, development, and prototypes to full production requires not just money, but the awareness of the public of the project’s existence to be spread, so that backers may help bring the XULU XR1 be released.
Prototypes are still underway, online reviewers will be receiving them shortly. If you are an online reviewer with a a significant following, let us know your interest so that we may prepare for you an early unit, soonest they are available, which you may use to show your audience. Feel free to email us directly via email@example.com
Aside from the huge price-advantage of buying directly from the factory, we want to give the end-consumers a chance to directly interact with our development team.
We value your feedback in the XULU XR1 crowdfunding campaign and we will incorporate significant suggestions, recommendations, and requests into the final production units.
Combining many years of experience, we have diverse talents from industrial design, mechanical design and tooling, to BIOS and software programming, PCB testing, assembly and components-procurement and testing.
