MINISFORUM has started selling the EliteMini X500, just days after it teased the mini-PC. The EliteMini X500 has a Ryzen 7 5700G, a powerful desktop APU that is a rarity for mini-PCs. The EliteMini X500 starts at US$859 with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

Last week, MINISFORUM teased the EliteMini X500, a mini-PC with an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G APU. Now, the company has unveiled the device on its website, where it is available in three configurations. Currently, MINISFORUM will include an AU, EU, UK or US power adapter in the box.

All configurations come with a Ryzen 7 5700G and have a 154 x 153 x 62 mm chassis that weighs 1.9 kg. MINISFORUM has also equipped the EliteMini X500 with two SODIMM slots for DDR4 RAM, an M.2 2280 slot for PCIe 3.0 SSDs and three expansion slots split between M.2 2242, 2.5-inch SATA and a microSD card reader. Additionally, the machine has an M.2 2230 slot in which MINISFORUM pre-installs an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 modem with Bluetooth 5.1 support. MINISFORUM states that the EliteMini X500 comes with the following ports:

  • 1x 3.5 mm audio jack
  • 1x DisplayPort
  • 1x HDMI
  • 1x HP OUT
  • 1x Line IN
  • 1x MIC IN
  • 1x Power Button
  • 1x microSD card slot
  • 2x RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet
  • 4x USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-A

The EliteMini X500 is only configurable with 512 GB of storage. However, MINISFORUM offers the machine with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB of RAM for US$859, US$959 and US$1,069, respectively. The company states that these prices include a US$100 early-bird discount, albeit without stating when that period ends.
