Once you connect this player to the HDMI interface of TV it will converts your regular TV into a Smart TV with Windows 8.1.

This is unlike anything we have sold before the Minix NEO Z64 Windows 8.1 Mini PC is the next generation streaming device, this is a fully function Windows 8.1 mini PC that connects to your TV through the HDMI port. This Fanless Mini PC is just like having a windows 8.1 PC on your TV how cool is that?
But the biggest benefit to a Windows mini-PC is that its easy to find hardware and software that will work on it.
Here’s the important part. Booting to the desktop from a completely powered down state is under 10 seconds. This is about half the time of a heavily-modded desktop PC running Windows 7 Professional on an solid-state drive. The official specs from Intel and MINIX clock the bootup at 10-15 seconds, but my version came in at 8 seconds on average.
Also in the tiny Minix NEO Z64 Windows 8.1 Mini PC body, there’s 2GB DDR3L memory and 32GB of eMMC storage. This should be plenty for most users purposes, but for those of us that want more space MINIX has also thrown in an SD card slot and two USB 2.0 for further expandability. a HDMI 1.4 for video output, 10/100 Mbits LAN, a headphone jack and a power DC IN on the rear. It supports Full HD output and playback and is also equipped with a 802.11n wireless card, hence the included antenna and it supports Bluetooth 4.0.
