Today we are surprised in AliExpress to find a new mini PC called M6, with a really compact size, but with really excellent specifications and at a very reasonable price.
Despite its size of only 155 x 80 x 19.5 mm, we see that inside we can mount two SSD storage units, and we find Wi-Fi 6 wireless connectivity and an RJ45 2.5G network port, unusual aspects in these mini PCs. As an engine, an Intel Celeron N5105 has been chosen, a more efficient processor than the J4125 and significantly faster, with which moving Windows 11 and all kinds of programs will not be a problem.
Also, noteworthy is its double video output with 4K60fps resolutions that completes this small low-power mini PC and that leaves it well above other options that we have seen lately.
MiniPC M6 Specs
On the motherboard of the mini PC M6 we have an Intel Celeron N5105 processor, a Quad Core manufactured in 10 nm capable of reaching 2.9 GHz in burst mode and in which we find an Intel UHD Graphics GPU with support for video playback h. 265 and VP9 up to 4K60fps resolutions. Attached to the processor, we have a good size fan that extracts air from the side of the case to keep temperatures at bay, although this processor does not have to generate much heat.
For RAM, we have options with 8/16 GB LPDDR4 2933 Mhz soldered on the board that cannot be expanded. Regarding storage, despite its size, we have an M.2 2242 SSD of 128/256/512 GB or 1 TB capacity and another M.2 NVMe 2280 port where to install a second high-speed SSD. Access to both SSDs is very easy thanks to a door that we have at the bottom of the box.
This low-power mini PC includes an Intel AX201 module with Wi-Fi AX 2×2 and Bluetooth 5.2 for wireless connectivity. As for ports, we find in the back of its small box a 3.5 mm audio jack, 2.5G network connector, three USB 3.1 ports, HDMI 2.0 video output that allows video resolutions up to 4K @ 60fps and a USB Type-C port for data and 4K video.
The included operating system is Windows 10, upgradable to Windows 11 and includes a small external power supply of only 24 W.
