A personal computer for $50 or less is set to provide a fresh challenge to the traditional home computer market when it goes on sale in October. The Remix Mini PC has already been snapped up by 30,000 customers in 125 countries, including Turkey, manufacturer Jide Technologies told Bloomberg TV on Tuesday. Beijing-based Jide has adapted the Android mobile operating system to provide PC functionality, Jide CEO David Ko said. The hand-sized computer does not come with a keyboard, mouse or monitor but has Bluetooth, USB ports, supports Wi-Fi and is to retail for between $30 and $50 depending on extras. "The key thing is that most people use their computers for surfing and checking email and that means they never touch most of the resources on a traditional PC," Ko said. "So we asked: Why should they spend $1,000 on a big PC?"
