Here’s a video showing Cubase 8 Pro running on a £129 Mini PC. The PC is an Acer Revo One RL85. The PC is only a dual core Celeron with the standard 2GB ram replaced with 8GB. The project was originally done on an i7 workstation and copied to the Acer, expecting it to not work, but it did???
The video was shot with a camera as a screen grab would probably have been too much for the processor with Cubase running at the same time. There’s a bit of noise in there as I was recording from the built in headphone out and not my audio interface.
