Reviewing OpenPandora - Chapter one

Filed under
Hardware
Gaming

I rarely review hardware, mostly my own purchases, which usually come in the form of this or that laptop, some desktops, plus an odd phone here and there. Approx. a month back, I was contacted by Michael Mrozek, the CEO of OpenPandora GmbH, and asked to review their Pandora product, the world's smallest, most powerful micro-gaming computer.

A few emails later, a review unit was sent by postal mail, and I received it just a few days ago. Which officially kickstarts the OpenPandora article season. Now, instead of giving you one superlong piece focusing on just a few short hours of usage, we will have a series of articles, each one detailing a different aspect of this little device. As it turns out, there's quite a bit to Pandora, as you will soon discover. So the first part, this one, is all about initial impressions.
