The PrimeMini 5 is a new and powerful mini-PC, considering its size. The compact machine runs silently too and features a good selection of I/O. The PrimeMini 5 ships worldwide from Switzerland.

Prime Computer has announced its latest mini-PC, the PrimeMini 5. Shipped globally from Switzerland, the PrimeMini 5 measures just 177 x 114 x 55 mm and has no onboard fan. Hence, the machine passively cools itself and should operate silently. At the time of writing, Prime Computer not only offers the PrimeMini 5 in five SKUs, but offers a flexible configurator should you not need any RAM or an SSD.   

The PrimeMini 5 can only be equipped with Intel Whiskey Lake processors, which range from the Core i3-8145U to the Core i7-8665U. These can be paired with up to 32 GB of DDR4-2400 dual-channel RAM and 3 TB of storage split across two drives. The PrimeMini 5 can be run on a single M.2 PCIe SSD, a 2.5-inch drive or both simultaneously. All SKUs come with built-in WiFi and can be configured with a second Ethernet port and RS-232 should you need these connections.

Prime Computer has equipped the PrimeMini 5 with many other ports too, including two HDMI outputs, four USB Type-A ports and a USB Type-C connection. The latter appears to support the Thunderbolt 3 standard, too. The PrimeMini 5 starts at CHF 669 (~US$738) and can be configured up to CHF 2,308 (~US$2,546) with 32 GB of RAM, a Core i7 processor, 3 TB of storage and a Windows 10 Pro licence.
