The journey starts here!

Image of 4te computerR-Comp Interactive, in partnership with a group of RISC OS companies and enthusiasts, is proud to announce the ARMini family of computers - ARMini, ARMX6, TiMachine, ARMbook and 4té. Powered by the latest ARM Cortex Ax architectures (A8 - A72), and running a modern RISC OS operating system, we hope that these new systems will excite anyone looking for a "next gen" pure-ARM RISC OS computer system.

Our latest computers typically runs software many times faster (eg. up to 10x as fast) as previous pure-ARM solutions, thanks to a faster processors with improved architechture and modern SATA-connected solid state discs. This is backed up by an array of USB2 ports and high-speed networking. Internal storage is available in various forms - flash, solid state or conventional drives can be attached, and there is removable storage (SD and MS card readers) too. For graphics, modern HDMI connections are supported for digital connection to modern LCD monitors and TVs (although VGA adapters are possible). This ensures a better quality picture - sharper and crisper than the old VGA analogue outout used historically.

At one stage we warned users that the original ARMini wasn't a replacement for computers like the RiscPC or Iyonix, but ongoing developments have now rendered that advice obsolete. With features like CD/DVD support and the inclusion of various legacy-software compatibility aides (see below), the ARMX6 onwards represent beautifully well-rounded RISC OS solutions. Whilst we would still encourage the use of modern RISC OS applications (OvationPro, Techwriter, ArtWorks, DataPower, MessengerPro, NetFetch, NetSurf, Photodesk, and so on), as you'll read in the next paragraph, a wide range of older programs are also supported. We think that you'll already find the ARMini family to be excellent machines at fair prices.

Stop Press - our computers are now supplied with Aemulor Pro free of charge to allow backwards compatibility with a wide range of older RISC OS applications including Impression Publisher, Eureka, TableMate, Rhapsody, Complete Animator, ProSound, Heroes of Might and Magic 2 and we've even had the demo of Sibelius 7 running!.

The ARMini family of computers now starts with the 4té from just £250 inc VAT. Please use the form here to register your interest and we will contact you to discuss your exact requirements.

If you’ve already started your journey...

If you already own a PineBook, Titanium, Beagle or Panda Board we offer schemes to allow you to trade-in your existing motherboard for one of our computers. Alternatively, you may buy into our Software & Support Scheme which enables you to take advantage of the software bundle and custom-written apps that our computer customers already receive, as well as regular, curated updates, bonus items, discounts and user group.

The mini.m, our two-inch box of delights

two inch computer

When people talk about a pocket-sized computer, you often need rather large pockets both physically and metaphorically! Not so with the mini.m, one of our more recent computers. Powered by (more or less) exactly the same tech as our hugely popular ARMX6 computer, the mini.m shrinks everything down into a two-inch cube. It almost has to be seen to be believed, as it packs the features of the ARMX6 (fast, quad core CPU, 2GB RAM, SATA, 4K HDMI graphics, speedy USB and so on) into the tiniest of spaces.

Truly portable, and powered from mains or via USB power, the mini.m could just as easily be connected to the back of your TV as coupled with a cheap, portable projector and popped in a briefcase for mobile presentations or church meetings. You could easily fit a mini.m in your suitcase, and use it on TVs in hotel rooms (most of which have HDMI ports these days), or in a caravan.

And introducing the new ARMin1 (ARM-in-One)

This computer integrates a top quality (IPS for best picture), high definition display with an ARM powered computer, to give an elegant RISC OS experience. Available with a variety of screen size possibilities, the base model has a 23/24" display. Since it includes a display, the ARM-in-1 can also be connected to your other equipment (eg. PC, RiscPC, DVD), and a suitable RiscPC/Iyonix MDF is available. You can even switch back and forth on the fly, with RISC OS always available at a touch of a button.

Priced from 399ukp, the ARM-in-1 is an ideal space-saving RISC OS solution, and includes access to RCI's well-respected support, software and regular updates.
