The MINISFORUM X35G has reached its campaign goal on Indiegogo, having been brought to the crowdfunding platform last month. To date, the Mini-PC has received over US$21,000 in funding, although there are still 25 days left to run on the campaign.

MINISFORUM has equipped the compact machine with a Core i3-1005G1, a 15 W processor from Intel's Ice Lake architecture. The CPU can boost to 3.4 GHz and is complemented by 16 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. However, there are two SO-DIMM slots, so the machine should be capable of running more than 16 GB. The X35G is actively cooled via two heatpipes, a heat sink and a fan. These not only have the job of keeping the processor and RAM cool, but also the M.2 2280 PCIe 3.0 x4 and 2.5-inch drives should you choose to use both.

One of the highlights of the X35G is its Thunderbolt 3 port, which sits at the front of the device. MINISFORUM has equipped the machine with plenty of other ports though, including dual Gigabit Ethernet, two dedicated video outputs and four USB ports. There is also a microSD card reader and a 3.5 mm input.

The X35G can still be ordered from US$350, although this does not include any storage. MINISFORUM charges US$400 for 256 GB of storage and US$430 for a version with 16 GB of Intel Optane Memory and a 1 TB HDD. The company aims to begin shipping the X35G next month. CNX Software has also published a review of the device, which is well worth a read.
