It might have also prompted some musing of what could have been. For example, what if Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, after one too many rounds at the bar, decided to make an interim release before Windows 95?

GULEEK i8 Windows 8.1 box comes with its own battery

Pico PC's like Zotac's ZBOX lines may be exactly that, tiny, but they aren't completely portable despite their portable size.

This odd GULEEK i8 "Windows 8.1 Smart Google TV Player" indeed comes with almost everything other pico computers have to offer with just a single but very important difference. It has its own 3,000 mAh battery inside.
