A mini PC with a case that we have already seen recently in a review with a totally fanless cooling, 0 noise, thanks to the inclusion of the Pentium Silver N6005 processor manufactured in 10 nm and with a TDP of only 10W. A processor that has to be above the N5030 and with enough power for office work, browsing or multimedia playback up to 4K@60 fps resolutions.
Despite its small size of 123x123x45 mm in the mini PC AC8 we have enough ports and Dual Channel RAM, something that always increases its performance and good options to increase its storage. A mini PC already comes with Windows 11 Pro as operating system and includes a small VESA compatible bracket in case you want to anchor it behind any monitor or TV at home or in the office.
