The APC supports HD quality multimedia, either streamed from sites such as YouTube or stored locally. It is also ideal for playing games on a large screen monitor or TV. The APC’s Neo-ITX motherboard measures 17cm x 8.5cm and can be housed in any standard Mini-ITX or microATX chassis. APC consumes only 4 watts when operating at idle power and 13.5 watts at maximum load.
