Neo G41V-4: Minix introduces an Intel Gemini Lake fanless mini PC for US$270
The Minix G41V-4 may be right up your street if you are a fan of compact and fanless mini PCs. Unveiled at IFA 2019 in Berlin, the device features four USB Type-A ports, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0a, DisplayPort, VGA, a headphone jack and a microSD card reader. There is even an M.2 2280 SATA III drive bay, should you wish to expand upon the 64 GB of soldered eMMC 5.1 flash storage.
Underpinning all this is an Intel Celeron N4100, a quad-core processor that integrates Intel UHD Graphics 600. The Gemini Lake chip has a 1.1 GHz base clock and can use its 6 W TDP to reach 2.4 GHz when needed. The UHD Graphics 600 should also allow the G41V-4 to play 4K video at up to 60 Hz. Minix has included 4 GB of DDR4-2400 RAM too, although this is not upgradeable as the company has soldered it to the motherboard. The fanless PC will also come pre-loaded with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
Notebook Italia claims that the G41V-4 will go on sale from November for US$270. Minix is bringing the Neo G50C-4 to market too, which has upgradeable RAM and packs a more powerful Intel Pentium Silver J5005 processor. The mini PC is not fanless though and will sell for US$299.
