About this project
Welcome to the World of Hercules PalmTop!
Hercules Computing is excited to introduce the Hercules PalmTop - the lightest PALM size Windows 10 PC that does not compromise computing power!
You can use Hercules PalmTop as a mobile PC and a mini desktop at your home or office. Since it incorporates the same Windows 10 OS (Ubuntu, too) as your home or office PCs with compact palm size, you don't need to spend time and money on mobile version applications anymore!
Hercules PalmTop goes into a new category of PC, and you can see its position among other Windows based devices. Please understand the table below is only for comparison, and devices listed work synergistically together.
A Mini Desktop AND Lightweight Mobile PC

Color Change Considered
Current backers are interested in the possible change of color into black. It will be finalized at the end of the project. This is 3D image for the black color model.
Runs desktop applications as nimbly as a full size PC or laptop
Hercules PalmTop gives you more speed, storage, and efficiency than current high priced tablets and smartphones. Hercules PalmTop runs full functions of Windows OS and its applications in the palm of your hand and at a fraction of the price!
NOW, your mobile PC can do the work on a SAME PLATFORM as your Windows desktop in any room in the house or in any remote location.
Newest Intel Quad Core Cherry Trail CPU, 12 core GPU, 4G RAM, 64G~128G Storage
Powerful enough to run all Windows 10 applications with the strength of the newest Intel mobile CPU, Cherry Trail z8300, and 12 Core GPU, Hercules PalmTop can support graphic rich tasks more fluidly and than most other mobile devices including casual games.
Its 4G memory and 64G(or 128G optional) internal storage surpass most mobile computing requirements.
Need more storage? NO PROBLEM. Hercules PalmTop is equipped with an SD card port that grows your storage up to 128G, providing for a maximum 256G storage. Of course, you can use USB memory as well.
Fast Connectivity / Noiseless Construction
To deliver the fastest mobile computing experience, Hercules PalmTop has integrated the fastest WiFi module 802.11ac, making gaming controller response or streaming your favorite movies the fastest available.
Bluetooth 4.0 is also ready to support all connectable devices to Hercules PalmTop.
Hercules PlamTop has great connectivity to conveniently use other peripherals. An HDMI port to connect HD TVs or projectors, 3.5 mm headphone jack, USB 3.0 and 2.0 one of each. USB 3.0 transfers data 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
Fanless noiseless construction
Hercules PalmTop has self cooling construction to handle the heat from Cherry Trail CPU, and doesn't have a separate fan.
Connect with More Devices
As a Windows 10 PC with the advance connectivity via wifi ac, Hercules PalmTop can be connected and controlled by Android/iOS phones and tablets using remote desktop control applications in the market. This way, you will feel you are turning a smartphone or a tablet into a Windows 10 PC, since you use full desktop version applications i.e. Photoshop or Powerpoint through the phone or the tablet.

Hercules Computing is dedicated to improving your mobile computing experience. You will see great changes on Hercules PalmTop without sacrificing the current slim size of Hercules PalmTop!
Please understand that, once these items start to open, we cannot deliver Hercules PalmTop on June anymore. Getting closer to these goals, we will announce new shipping dates.
The commitment to Hercules PalmTop began in early 2014. Hercules evaluated all available base boards and dropped the idea of stick PCs, because the HDMI connector wasn’t firm enough with all connectors in use.
The chip sets available to the market were changing so rapidly and after Baytrail proved disappointing in both performance, Hercules Computing decided to wait for the sample run of Cherry Trail.
Combinations of integrated connectors were also limitless, but the optimum configuration was brought to the current Hercules PalmTop.
The housing design also had a huge number of possibilities - from square, vertical / horizontal rectangles. Horizontal rectangle had the most stable position when installed on a table with wires, and has become the final design.
