The ASRock Beebox N3000 is a tiny desktop computer with a low-power Intel Celeron N3000 Braswell processor.

We first learned about this mini PC in May, and now it’s available in the United States. Newegg is selling the Beebox N3000 for $140.

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.

  1. Well if it’s not at least N3150 or N3700 I don’t care… these N3000, N3050 and X3 they are so useless…

  2. The Intel page says it supports 8GB of memory. Also, only a 4 watt CPU/GPU. No wonder it doesn’t need a fan!

      1. Interesting. I’ve seen that with microSD on mobile devices, but I wouldn’t expect that in this context.

        1. Not unheard of to be able to install more RAM than spec support indicate, but just because you can install and have the system recognize more RAM doesn’t mean the system can actually use it all or do so very efficiently…

          We won’t know that for certain until actual benchmarks and more detailed RAM tests that show how the RAM is actually used…

          Though, of course, make sure you’re using a 64bit OS when trying this…

          1. I guess I’ve just never had larger memory of the correct type around to give it a try. 😉
