The Beelink U59 Pro is a compact desktop computer that measures 4.9″ x 4.4′ x 1.7″ and features support for up to three displays thanks to dual HDMI ports and a USB Type-C jack.

If the computer looks familiar, that’s because it’s nearly identical to the Beelink U59 that launched last year. But Beelink equips the new model with a different processor that should be a little more efficient while offering better graphics performance. The Beelink U59 Pro is now available for $209 and up.

Somewhat surprisingly for a model with “Pro” in the name, that means the Beelink U59 and U59 Pro are the same price. You can buy a model with 8GB of RAM, a 500GB SSD, and Windows 11 pre-installed for $209 or pay $229 for a 16GB/500GB version of either mini PC.

The key difference is the processor:

L3 Cache4MB4MB
GPUIntel UHDIntel UHD
Graphics base / burst freq450 MHz / 800MHz450 MHz / 750 MHz
Graphics execution units2416

Both processors are 10nm chips based on Intel’s Jasper Lake architecture that was released in 2021. But the Celeron N5105 processor is designed for mobile devices, while the Celeron N5095 was made for desktops.

The Celeron N5105 has a couple of additional features baked in including support for Intel’s Smart Sound, Wake on Voice, and High Definition Audio technologies. But I suspect it’s the improved graphics that will make the biggest difference for most users.

As for the Beelink U59 mini PCs, they’re nearly identical. Aside from the processor, the only difference I can spot is that the Beelink U59 Pro has two Gigabit Ethernet jacks, while the original has just one.

Both of the little computers feature support for up to 16GB of DDR4-2933 memory, M.2 2280 slots for SATA SSDs and 2.5 inch drive bays for an optional HDD or SSD, a plastic chassis, and a fan for active cooling.

Ports include:

  • 2 x HDMI
  • 4 x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 1 x USB Type-C
  • 2 x Gigabit Ethernet (U59 Pro) or 1 x Gigabit Ethernet (U59)
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio
  • 1 x DC power input

Wireless capabilities top out at WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.0.

  1. All the two U59’s share are the U59 designation, casings and plug-in components. Not just diferent processors but different motherboards.

  2. I got it, the N5105 U59-pro, took under 2 weeks from order to arrive at US address from HK I think. It works fine. The SSD is not NVMe only SATA SSD but with 16GB and 512GB – it works fine. With Windows Fast Boot – OFF, from Cold Boot – through a now fully configured and updated W11pro logon – enter pw then to an active windows desktop is a little under 30 secs. No issues for typical random web work, some LibreOffice and YouTube/Netflix or social media junk. A nice cheap PC for grandma/granddad, runs acceptably quite (has fan but at office desk level you would never know.) Not a gaming rig obviously – and you wouldn’t pick it for at heavy CPU/GPU work – but the 4 core/thread N5150 – WiFi 5 Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 and gigabit NICs work fine; NICs are Realtek RTL8168/8111. SSD reads NGFF 2280 512 SSD Serial ATA 6Gb/s. I got the U59_Pro-N5105 16GB-500GB for USD $229 delivered to US with W11pro (21H2) – shows as activated once on net, and all updates performed just fine. So, all in all for what it is I’m happy enough – it’s a good spare or random user rig. Did I say $229 new / delivered? I’m not complaining.

  3. This would be great if it included a Linux compatible Wifi adapter with no driner hassels.

  4. SATA only m.2 connector per Beelink’s website. That’s a shame, NVMe would make this a truly “pro” UCFF, with SATA only it’s not going to be competitive with $150 used HP EliteDesk or Dell Mini PCs from 2017.
