Today we have a new mini PC called Chatreey MR01 that can be useful for multiple scenarios, both for industrial and domestic use if we require a fanless system.
This computer with an aluminum case with fin system to exchange heat offers us an Intel Celeron N4000 processor, a hardware that is not the most powerful, but allows us to perform many tasks in Windows or Linux. As we can also see in the connectors section we have more than remarkable capabilities, we have four 2.5GB network ports to mount any network system that requires power and support for 4G modem.
If we want something for home use we have other mini PCs perhaps more attractive and if we require even more power for industrial applications we have other passive ones even with Intel Gen11.
