The Chatreey AN1 looks a lot like an Intel NUC with its a squat cuboid chassis. However, the 130 x 130 x 50 mm mini-PC comes with recent AMD Ryzen APUs of multiple flavours. According to the AliExpress, Chatreey sells the machine with a Ryzen 3 2200U, a Ryzen 7 2700U or a Ryzen 5 3500U, although the latter is sold out at the time of writing.
Nonetheless, the Ryzen 7 2700U comes within 4% of the Ryzen 5 3500U in our database, so you would not be at much of a performance disadvantage by going with the slightly older Zen APU instead of the Zen+ one. All APUs are available as barebones machines or with up to 16 GB of RAM, a 512 GB SSD and a 1 TB HDD.
The two drives are replaceable, with Chatreey having included an M.2 2280 slot and a SATA bay that can accommodate up to 7 mm drives. The AN1 handles image output via DisplayPort or HDMI and has five USB Type-A ports spread across its front and back panels. Additionally, Chatreey has included a USB Type-C port that also supports DisplayPort. Moreover, there is AC Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet and SO-DIMM RAM.
The Chatreey AN1 can be equipped with US, Australian, UK or EU plugs. Currently, there is a US$39 surcharge for the Ryzen 7 2700U model compared to the Ryzen 3 2200U version, while the former costs up to US$456 when fully configured.
