The MINISFORUM UN100L is a compact desktop computer with a 6-watt Intel Processor N100 quad-core chip, 16GB of LPDDR5-4800 onboard memory, and multiple storage options.

It’s up for pre-order, with prices starting at $209 for a model featuring 16GB of RAM and 512GB of solid state storage.

The little computer has an M.2 2280 slot with support for PCIe 3.0 solid state drives, a 2.5 inch bay for a SATA 3.0 hard drive or SSD, and a microSD card reader for removable storage. The official spec sheet also mentions support for an optional 128GB or 256GB UFS 2.1 module, but it’s unclear how you’d actually get one, since it’s not listed as a purchase option on the MINISFORUM website.

The computer also supports up to three displays thanks to HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB 3.2 Type-C ports. There are also two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, two USB 2.0 Type-A ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack.

MINISFORUM says there’s a fan inside the case for active cooling, but the company describes it as “ultra-quiet.”

The computer also comes with an Intel Wireless-AC 9560 wireless card featuring support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1, which is a little disappointing at a time when WiFi 7 is already starting to roll out. But did I mention that this thing has a starting price of $209?

  1. Aw man, and I just bought the GMKtech product that uses an equivalent chip, but with DDR4. memory. For my purposes I don’t think it would matter, but I do kinda wish I had the faster memory, to make efficient use of the quite weak CPU and GPU.

  2. UFS (Universal Flash Storage) back to 2.1 is long in the tooth.[1] Good luck finding an actual UFS module; and if you do find one make sure it is factory fresh as they are noted for short lifespans. For at least a decade UFS has been touted as the replacement for SD cards and eMMC, but personally I have not seen it take off.

    But gee, it is tough to complain at $209 to start for a N100/16GB/512GB box. In the long run the fan is a something to worry about though – from the start look for a replacement.

  3. I wondered why the previous UN100C model is not listed in Minisforum’s support section. Looks like it got replaced with a model that fixes the UN100C’s noisy fan issue.
