This workstation/thin client can take up to 64GB DDR4 memory, supports up to three SSD drives and uses a 90W PSU. There’s also plenty of connectors: two video ports, five USB ports (including a Type-C one), a GB Ethernet connector and an audio port. At 15 x 14.6 x 6.65cm, it is compact enough to be carried around with ease.
Note that despite its size, it does have a massive 100mm fan and plenty of slits to allow air to circulate to cool the CPU but also the 8GB memory and the 128GB M.2 SSD. Remember that, like most PCs coming from mainland China, there’s no original Windows 10 OS bundled.
