Chinese device maker Mele is updating its PCG03 line of mini-computers with a new model with a faster processor.
Earlier this year the company launched a mini-desktop with an Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor, an external antenna, and full-sized USB, HDMI, and VGA ports.
Now the company is showing off the PCG03 Plus, which has an Atom x5-Z8300 Cherry Trail chip.
The design and other features are pretty much the same as they were for the version I reviewed in March, including:
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB of eMMC storage
- 10/100 Ethernet
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 3 USB 2.0 ports
- HDMI, VGA, and headphone/speaker ports
The main differences is that the new model has a processor that should offer modest performance gains and more powerful graphics. The new model will also ship with Windows 10 instead of Windows 8.1, but that’s not really a big deal since most Windows 8 computers are eligible for free upgrades.
Notebook Italia reports the new PCG03 Plus should be available later this year for about $149.
