Less than half a year after updating its Beebox-S line of tiny desktop computers to support Intel’s 6th-gen Core “Skylake” processors, ASRock is releasing new models that will ship with 7th-gen Intel Core “Kaby Lake” chips.

The new Beebox-S is now available from select retailers for around $290 and up (give or take).

as-bb_01 ASRock’s little computer ships as a barebones PC which includes a case, CPU, motherboard, power supply, and wireless card, but without memory, storage, or an operating system.

The system measures about 4.7″ x 4.3″ x 1.8″ and under the hood there’s room for up to 32GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory (with two SODIMM slots) and support for M.2 solid state storage and a 2.5 inch drive.

The computer features 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, three USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort and two HDMI ports, a headset jack, Gigabit Ethernet jack, and IR port for use with an infrared remote control.

As for the processor, the Beebox-S is available with a 15 watt Intel Core i3-7100U dual-core CPU or a Core i5-7200U dual-core chip. Those are basically laptop-class chips, but the relatively low power consumption should keep the little computer from getting too hot while in use.
