New Chinese brand so far focused on the TV-Box with Android, X96, which now dares with the miniPCs with Windows 10 that are working so well in the market thanks to its low consumption, performance and size. X96 G5 is the new Chinese miniPC that we can enroll in the input range as it includes an Intel 5th Generation processor (we are already on the 10th) although on the other hand we have 8GB of RAM on board something that helps greatly move Windows and desktop programs with ease. Point out that its top cover opens like the hood of a car and allows us to easily access its interior and the bay for 2.5″ discs that it includes.
