Chinese PC maker Mele has been selling small fanless desktop computers under the PCG35 name for years, first shipping a model with an Intel Apollo Lake processor and then following up with a Gemini Lake model.

Now the company is back with a new version sporting an Intel Celeron N5105 quad-core chip based on Jasper Lake architecture. The new Mele PCG35 HD3Q also adds support for WiFi 6 and the computer ships with Windows 11 Pro pre-installed.

The Mele PCG35 HD3Q is available from Amazon for $280 and up, but there’s a coupon that lets you save $40 on the following configurations:

Intel’s Celeron N5105 processor is a 10-watt, 4-core, 4-thread chip with base and burst speeds of 2 GHz and 2.9 Ghz, respectively, and Intel UHD integrated graphics with 24 execution units and base / burst speeds of 450 Hz / 800 MHz.

Mele already uses the same chip in the similarly-priced, but smaller Quieter3Q fanless mini PC, which is a pocket-sized computer that measures just 5.2″ x 3.2″ x 0.7″. By comparison, the PCG35 measures 7.8″ x 5.8″ x 1.7″ and has enough space under the hood for an optional 2.5″ hard drive or SSD.

In fact, the system can support up to three internal storage devices thanks to an M.2 2280 slot for NVMe storage, a 2.5″ drive bay, and eMMC storage soldered to the motherboard. There’s also a microSD card reader with support for removable cards up to 1TB.

The computer also has a Gigabit Ethernet jack, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 support, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, two HDMI 2.0 ports, and a VGA port with support for up to two 4K displays plus a 1080p display.

  1. The 5105 is a great entry cpu. With 24 gpu execution units vs the usual 16 and a real quad core (but just four threads) cpu in a fairly low heat package.

    But I’ve already seen it in three other boxes. A little cube, a larger mac-mini reminiscent aluminum one and in a tiny flat “m6″ package like this, only with active cooling.

    The little cube and the actively cooled ‘m6’ package that look like this both throttle, cutting your cpu and gpu performance by 10-15% or more.

    The larger flat one with the silent fan that really doesn’t spin up much faster doesn’t throttle.

    Ask yourself again why it can’t have a fan in it, and why it has to be in a 2″x4” package.

    The sellers are also getting super excited about the sales of boxes with this cpu in it. Because it’ll actually run windows well, and stream 4k/60 youtube videos without dropping frames. So they’re jacking up the prices. The larger flat mini pc sells for around $200, sometimes as low as $180. Now they’re looking to get $250 for it, or even more.

    Get a box with this cpu for your entry computer needs, or media center/streaming. And don’t sweat the internal storage. Its plenty for windows and external usb 3.2 drives will run at over 1000MB/s.
    In stress tests, the little cube and the non
