Beautiful, small, practical and affordable – I believe that’s what the ECS LIVA is. It’s not the most powerful computer on the block but it can be powered by power banks! Did that got you hooked? Read on.
The LIVA is a tiny computer that runs on Intel’s SoC Bay Trail-M system. The processor is a Celeron N2807 with base frequency of 1.58 GHz and burst Frequency 2.16 GHz and a very lower TDP of 4.3 watts. CPU-Z didn’t work for this machine, my guess it’s that it’s too niche to get it programmed to detect correctly so I had to rely on Window’s to find out the processor model and reference it to Intel ARK.
The LIVA Mini PC comes with either 32GB or 64GB storage, this unit is the 64GB variant. It has 2GB of RAM and a host of other I/O ports. As for colors, there’s white and black. At the rear are a host of I/O ports.
Have a look at the specifications as seen on the official product page.
And don’t forget the unboxing video if you’re interested in that.
With all that settled, let’s have a look at the heart of the system.

Just how small is the unit? Here’s how it compares to some toys.
Here’s the under side of the PCB.
And here’s the Wireless module, the antenna is taped to the chassis while the M.2 module is connected to the PCB and locked with a screw.
