Chuwi GBox Review – Great Mini PC But Needs More RAM

The GBox is Chuwi’s latest budget Windows 10 mini PC. This is powered by the latest Gemini Lake Celeron N4100 SoC, it has 4GB of DDR4 RAM and 64GB of storage. But on the back, there is a 2.5″ SATA3 bay and hidden inside even an M.2 2242 and 2280 slot for an SSD. This isn’t even advertised by Chuwi maybe as they don’t want us opening it up? But I’ve covered this in the...[Read More]

Alfawise T1 (Beelink S2) Gemini Lake N4100 Mini PC Review

A solid Mini PC from Beelink it’s really the Beelink S2 this mini PC. But rebranded as the AlfawiseT1, an overall great little mini PC with good thermals it will not go past 85 degrees c. Plenty of storage options (M.2 SSD or 2.5″) Fast eMMC 5.1 spec but only 4GB of RAM. This is it’s only really a weakness.

New Gemini Lake Tech Coming – Tablets, Laptops & Mini PC’s

Alldocube has updated their Knote, now called the KNote 5 it ships with the Gemini Lake Celeron N4100. The sad thing is they haven’t done anything else to it. I checked out this model back last year with the N3450 and it only has a Type-C port, no USB type-A. While you get the faster chipset that is really it, RAM has also dropped to 4GB, but it’s DDR4 2400Mhz vs the last gen’s D...[Read More]

Hands-On with the Hystou Core i5 8350U Mini PC

This one caught my eye back when the Anniversary Aliexpress sale was on, I order one for $328 with DHL shipping.

First Gemini Lake Mini PC’s Coming – Alfawise T1

Only weeks ago Intel’s Gemini Lake J4005 (10W TDP) NUC was released, that one has two x HDMI 2.0 ports and can run two 4k monitors at 60hz monitors, what it lacks, however, is an M.2 SSD slot. This new Alfawise T1 Mini PC with Gemini Lake N4100 (6W TDP 2.4Ghz) has at least the M.2 SSD slot and HDMI 2.0, but only one. There is also VGA something you don’t normally see now. Gemini Lake l...[Read More]

Chuwi’s New Mini PC – The HiGame

Chuwi is getting back to the Mini PC market, but this time with a rather powerful one. Not a weak Apollo Lake or Gemini Lake SoC, but the new 8th Gen Intel Core i5 8305G. Based on Kaby Lake-G it’s a very interesting chipset that combines both an Intel CPU and an AMD dedicated GPU on one die. The GPU is a Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics, which is around 30% to 40% faster than a Nvidia 1050. The ...[Read More]

BeeLink AP42 Windows 10 PC (Pentium N4200)

Back in December, I reviewed the first Pentium N4200 Windows 10 Mini PC, the Voyo V1 which has this same Apollo Lake N4200 in it, A 2.5Ghz max turbo quad-core with Intel 505 GPU. It performed well, now BeeLink has the AP42 an oddly named Windows 10 mini PC, but it has no fan in it, the Voyo V1 is actively cooled. This one is passively cooled so only a big heatsink in there so should be great for t...[Read More]
