Another inexpensive mini PC that we find in Chinese online stores called Coolby YealBox and that includes fanless cooling, with which we will have 0 noises during its operation.
This is a mini PC with modest hardware, but it is capable of replacing old towers with minimal electrical consumption without taking up space, since it measures only 12.0 x 12.0 x 2.25 cm. Its hardware is not up-to-date, it includes an Intel Celeron N3350 processor, however, it is capable of moving Windows 10, web browsers with multiple open windows or running office programs with dignity thanks to its 6 GB of RAM in Dual Channel and its SSD M.2 disk, much faster than the eMMc memory that we usually find in this type of cheap mini PC’s.
