The T-Bao TBOOK MN59 is a small desktop computer powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, a 45-watt, 8-core, 16-thread chip with support for speeds up to 4.6 GHz. It’s one of AMD’s most powerful laptop-class processors to date, but putting it into a compact desktop has some advantages.

There’s room for both an NVME SSD and a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD for example. There are plenty of full-sized ports. And it should be fairly simple to open the chassis and perform your own upgrades.

You can purchase a TBOOK MN59 with 16GB of DDR4-3200 RAM and a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD for $900 from Banggood.

Since the computer measures about 7.8″ x 7.8″ x 1.9″, the little computer takes up less space on a desk than a typical tower and can even be mounted to the back of a display. It supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 and ships with Windows 10 Home software. The computer has a selection of ports including:

  • 1 x HDMI 2.0
  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio out
  • 1 x 3.5mm mic input
  • 1 x USB Type-C
  • 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A
  • 4 x USB 2.0 Type-A

It’d be nice if a few more of those ports supported USB 3.0 or higher speeds, but USB 2.0 should be good enough for connecting accessories like keyboards, mice, and printers.

The TBOOK TM59 isn’t the first mini PC to feature a Ryzen 9 5900HX processor, but they’re not exactly common… although it also may not be long before they start to feel like old hat, since AMD is expected to introduce its Ryzen 6000 series processor lineup during next week’s Consumer Electronics Show.

  1. HDMI 2.0 and USB 3.0, on a high-spec PC from 2021. Yikes. It’s like someone brought a 2021 CPU back in time to 2017 and made a Mini PC with it.

    Once again, a Chinese Mini-PC with a cool CPU, but everything else extremely lacking or confusing.

    1. In complete agreement with your thoughts on this Grant. I really wish there was a larger player in the market who would take an “AMD NUC” style mini-pc seriously…even if AMD themselves stepped up to the plate.

      I’m standing by with cash in hand.

    2. You cannot complain about HDMI 2.0. For all intents and purposes, it is the latest version. HDMI 2.0 has been renamed into HDMI 2.1, there is no practical difference between the two.

      What is different is that HDMI 2.1 supports some optional features, like FRL. But hardware that supports these optional features must write it explicitly to gain certification. So when you read “HDMI 2.1” it just means “HDMI 2.0”.
