The T-Bao TBOOK MN45 is a 5.2″ x 5.2″ x 2″ computer featuring an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor, support for up to three displays, dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and support for WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
It’s available for pre-order from Banggood, with a model sporting 16GB of RAM and a 512GB of PCIe NVMe SSD selling for $550.
Want to upgrade the hardware? The system has an M.2 2280 slot for solid state storage, a 2.5 inch drive bay for a SATA hard drive or SSD, and two SODIMM slots for DDR4-3200 memory. The wireless card is also a user-replaceable M.2 2230 module.

- 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A
- 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 2 x Gigabit Ethernet
- 1 x 3.5mm headphone jack
Not only does the computer not take up much space, but neither does its power adapter: the TBOOK MN45 comes with a 65 watt USB-C charger that uses GaN technology for a compact design.
T-Bao says the computer is quiet, but not entirely silent – it has three heat pipes and a fan for active cooling.
In addition to Banggood, the T-Bao MN45 is available for around $549 and up from several AliExpress sellers. But there’s a chance it’ll eventually show up in Western stores as well – Walmart sells older models with Ryzen 2000U series chips for around $355 and up.
What size is the fan?
It looks like the AC power adapter in the picture has a USB-A connector on it. I wonder if that’s just for power delivery, or if it can be used for data too.
Since the adapter connects with USB-C, it’s possible there could be a USB hub in there, just like how the Chromecast has ethernet in its power adapter.
I would imagine they just bundled a usb charger that happens to have an extra usb-a charging port (a nice plus, though if the charger could have been smaller with only the usb-c…)
