Geekbuying is launching a small computer with an octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, Gigabit Ethernet and support for 4K video playback. Itís called the GeekboxÖ and itís being positioned as much more than just another media streamer.

The Geekbox comes with Android and Ubuntu dual-boot software preloaded and thereís an option to install Rockchipís Light Biz OS version of Android.

And you can also open up the Geekbox case, remove the system-on-a-module that houses most of the tiny computerís guts, and use it for other projects.

For example, Geekbuying also sells a 7.9 inch, 2048 x 1546 pixel display panel for the Geekbox, and a LandingShip printed circuit board that adds additional input and output options, support for a 2.5 inch SATA drive, LEDs, camera and display connectors, and a 60-pin GPIO header, among other things.

The Geekbox is available for pre-order for $110, but you can get a $20 coupon by leaving a comment on the Geekbuying promo page.

The box includes a microS card slot, HDMI 2.0 port, a micro USB port, two USB ports, a nd a Rockchip RK3368 ARM Cortex-A53 octa-core processor with PowerVR SGX6110 graphics. It also comes with an infrared remote control.

The TV box has a fanless design, but thereís a connector for a fan if you plan to build your own device that could benefit from an active cooling system.
