Apple is slowly moving its computing systems towards ARM - based processors - the newest MacBook Pros with M1X chip is the latest addition.

On the other hand, there are only a handful of Windows laptops and desktops that use ARM - based processors. A strong app ecosystem is one of the keys to having more of these systems.

Last year, Apple introduced an ARM-based Mac Mini for developers to start porting their apps. If you are a Windows app developer, there is an information tool available for you too, thanks to Qualcomm.

In May, at Microsoft's developer summit, Qualcomm unveiled a developer package without revealing too much detail. Now, we have more information about this device, and a $ 219 price point.

The device, named the Desktop ECS LIVA Mini Box QC710 Desktop has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c (gen 1) octa-core CPU with up to 2.4GHz clock speed.
