Elitegroup Computer Systems is following up last year’s mPC mini-desktop computer with a new 2nd-gen model sporting higher-performance processors.

While the original mPC was powered by a 7.5 watt Intel Celeron Bay Trail Trail processor, the new ECS mPC Gen2 is equipped to handle 15 watt Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 Skylake processors.

The computers also support up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 RAM and features USB 3.1 Type-A and Type-C ports, support for dual displays, and feature M.2 slots for solid state storage.

The mPC Gen2 has HDMI 1.4b and mini DisplayPort 1.2 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet  jack, a mic and headphone combo jack, and an IR receiver that lets you use a remote control with the computer.

Borrowing an idea from Intel’s latest NUC mini-desktops, the new ECS mPC computers also have a semi-modular design. You can swap out the top cover for one with a wireless charging port built in, or one with an NFC chip.

There’s also an optional bottom box that can house a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.
