Microsoft teamed with Qualcomm to announce a new Snapdragon Developer Kit for Windows 10 on ARM at the 2021 Build conference, as you may recall.

The businesses marketed it as a cost-effective solution for developers, with the goal of providing a simple method for app developers to test ARM-based apps on a Windows tablet.

This is a fantastic price, since many people would have paid well over $1,000 for a specialized ARM-based tablet or laptop, such as the Surface Pro X.

So, without further ado, know that the device is now officially available and can be purchased for $219 on the Microsoft Store.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Developer Kit is now available on the Microsoft Store.

The ECS LIVA Mini Box QC710 Desktop is an ultra-compact, ultra-efficient computer designed for a variety of home and business applications, according to the company.

If you plan on purchasing one, take in mind that Microsoft has said that there will be no returns available for this product, as well as the fact that it is intended for developers rather to consumers.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Developer Kit is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Compute SC7180 CPU, just in case you were wondering.

There’s 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of eMMC storage included, as well as 1 USB Type-C (PD-Charging connector), 1 USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A, 1 USB 2.0 Type-A, 1 HDMI, and 1 LAN (10/100) port.


This device comes with Windows 10 Home preloaded, however it is eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 11.

If you’re looking for a design comparison, the kit resembles Apple’s Mac Mini. It weighs around half a pound, has no fans, and seems to be quite portable.

Long-time Microsoft or Windows fans will undoubtedly be enticed by the default spec and cost, but purchasers should be mindful that it is still meant for developers exclusively, as we previously said.

When everything is said and done, the new gadget has the potential to be a laptop or desktop replacement, as well as a competitor to Apple’s M1 Mac Mini.
