The ASRock Beebox N3000 is a tiny desktop computer with a low-power Intel Celeron N3000 Braswell processor.
That price gets you a barebones computer with Intel’s Braswell processor and Intel HD graphics, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, four USB ports (including one USB Type-C port), two HDMI ports, and a DisplayPort.
There’s also a headset jack and an infared remote control that you can use to control music, video, or other apps.
Since this is a barebones model, it doesn’t include memory, storage, or an operating system. But Newegg says the system has two memory slots, features room for a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive and an mSATA SSD, and supports up to 16GB of RAM (which is odd, since Intel says the chip only supports up to 8GB — but AnandTech reports that the system does in fact support 16GB).
The little computer measures about 4.7″ x 4.3″ x 1.8″ and a passive cooling system: that means there’s no fan inside the case.
According to documents we saw in May, ASRock may have plans to sell Beebox models with storage, memory, and Windows software. But those models aren’t yet available in the US.
