Today a user send us a new offer of fanless mini PCs in the Aliexpress.com online store, devices with enough processor, RAM and storage options for which he asked us for advice. These fanless products are ideal for having a desktop computer with low consumption if we select the components well.
Processor, memory and storage
The mini fanless PCs on offer have interesting processors at 14nm like the 5th generation Intel Core i3-5005U and i5-5200U or the 7th generation Intel Core i3-7100U and i5-7200U, the rest of the 4th generation model DOES NOT WORTH THE MONEY because It has a very old GPU and they are made in 22nm and sure goes too hot in use. We can acquire the mini PC without storage or RAM, but also with these components, if we are going to surf intensively it is advisable to install 8GB of RAM. Models with included storage come with a 2.5″ SSD disk mounted, we also have an available mSATA slot.
In this miniPC we also have a mini PCI-e port for the WiFi / Bluetooth card (only included if we buy RAM and Storage), it has two connectors for external WiFi antennas included in the aluminum chassis. At the connectivity level we find in the box 4 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, RJ-45 Gigabit network connector, a pair of 3.5mm audio jacks and HDMI 1.4 and VGA video outputs. If has Windows 10 installed we doubt that it is activated.
