First run, first impressions.

The device boots quickly, reaching the Windows 8.1 Start screen under 20 seconds, which is great. After the first boot, 48.5GB/53.3GB was free on the internal storage.  And yes, Windows 8.1 with Bing is activated. Performance of the device feels nice and fast, with animations remaining smooth and applications launching quickly. The WiFi is fast and stable and the lack of Ethernet RJ45 port is not  a problem, you can buy a cheap USB to Ethernet dongle
Once past the initial setup, Windows experience becomes more pleasant waiting time to start applications or web pages load is within acceptable limits, comparable to an older generation PC. No 2GB RAM seems to be a serious obstacle, as long as we do not use too many applications simultaneously

Overall, the VOYO Mini PC is an interesting device. Being so compact, it makes it a great portable HTPC or general purpose PC

Windows 8.1 with Bing
Windows 8.1 with Bing is the free version of Windows 8.1. In the system and functions, there is no difference between Windows 8.1 with Bing and Windows 8.1. The build-in Internet explore version is IE11. Microsoft’s Bing search is the system IE browser’s default search engine.
