The PCG35 Apo is powered by Intel’s Apollo Lake Celeron J3455 CPU with 10W TDP, and will begin shipping in August for about $179.

The popularity of the Apollo Lake CPU series has lead to a surge of new mini PC models throughout 2017. You probably haven’t heard of MeLE, but this Chinese device maker started to shift its focus towards mini PCs when the Apollo Lake CPU series was released. Their latest small form factor PC is the PCG35 Apo powered by Intel’s Apollo Lake Celeron J3455, which features a TDP of only 10W.

The CPU runs at 1.50 GHz by default, while turbo mode increases the clock to 2.3 GHz. The Celeron J3455 also integrates a 12 EV Intel HD Graphics 500 running at 250 / 750 MHz. The mini PC case measures 7.8″ x 4.9″ x 1.6″ and incorporates a radiator-like design with fins in order to dissipate heat. It also packs 4GB of LPDDR3 and 32GB eMMC onboard storage, extendable through an M.2 SSD slot and a 2.5” SATA drive bay.

Other features include an SD card slot, an HDMI 2.0 port, a VGA port, 3.5mm audio jack, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, three USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one USB 3.0 Type-C port, and a USB 2.0 port. The system comes preinstalled with Windows 10 Home 64-bit, and MeLE will also offer Ubuntu in the near future.

MeLE will be shipping the PCG35 Apo in August for roughly US$179.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
