The Sirius B is capable of running 32bit versions of Windows. 64bit systems are not supported and bootable USB Flash Drives with a 64bit version of Windows will therefore not show up in the bootmenu. The Sirius B Black Cherry is capable of running 64bit OS systems.Last updated:
No. The Micro SD card slot is perfect for extending your memory. (SD cards up to 128GB's) And when 128GB isn’t enough, you have two USB ports to hook up an USB stick or USB external hard drive.Last updated:
We've performed some tests regarding the maximum supported Micro SD storage.
In our case we've tested the Sirius B Black Cherry with a Sandisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD Card. Our 200GB Micro SD card did not successfully pass our tests. Obviously there are more 200GB Micro SD cards available and we haven't tested them all. That's why in theory it could be possible that some 200GB Micro SD cards work with the Micro SD card reader installed in the Black Cherry, but we cannot guarantee this at this stage.
Both the Sirius B and the Sirius B Black Cherry support Micro SD cards up to 128GB.Last updated:
The performance of the Sirius B is excellent for normal day to day use. That means you can browse, email, edit documents, stream your favorite media and many other day to day tasks without any problem. We don’t like selling something as different from what it really is, so that’s why we tell you not to expect to play heavy 3D games with the Ockel Sirius B.Last updated:
The Ockel Sirius B Black Cherry has 1 HDMI-port, but you can add an additional screen using the USB-port, if you have a USB-monitor. Please note that this monitor would need to have its own power supply. You could also use an HDMI-splitter, but in that case you'll get the same view twice.
Another great option would be to use either the Dual Display app (for iOS) or the Splashtop Wired XDisplay (for Android) so you can turn your smartphone or tablet into a second screen. At http://www.ockelproducts.com/blog/ you can find instructions how to do this.Last updated:
