ASUS PN63-S1: Retailers begin selling sub 1-litre mini-PC from $329
ASUS has started selling the PN63-S1, a mini-PC that it unveiled in March. To recap, ASUS revealed the PN63-S1 with a choice between five processors, the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-1135G7, Core i7-1165G7, Core i5-11300H and the Core i7-11370H. While not all processor options are orderable yet, the Core i3-1115G4, Core i5-11300H and Core i7-11370H are.
Specifically, B&H has listed the Core i3-1115G4 edition as a barebones system for US$329. For some reason, B&H is allowing people to pre-order the PN63-S1 but without giving a fixed release date. Similarly, the retailer sells Core i5-11300H and Core i7-11370H barebones systems for US$459 and US$619, respectively, also without shipment dates.
The same is the case with Adorama and Newegg, which match B&H's prices. Seemingly then, these are prices communicated by ASUS and not placeholders. Either way, all three retailers have opened PN63-S1 pre-orders. For reference, the 120 x 130 x 58 mm mini-PC features the following I/O and has a 0.9-litre chassis.
