But the new MINISFORUM S40 keeps the PC Stick dream alive. It’s a bit on the chunky side, but the S40 is a full-fledged computer that you can plug directly into the HDMI port of a TV or monitor.
The little computer measures about 5.2″ x 1.8″ and has an HDMI connector on one end. Under the hood it features:
- Intel Celeron N4000 dual-core Gemini Lake processor
- Intel UHD graphics
- 4GB of LPDDR4 memory
- 64GB of eMMC storage
- 802.11ac WiFi
- Bluetooth 5.0
- Cooling fan
Is this the best little computer you can get for under $200? Almost certainly not. But it’s definitely one of the smallest that’s capable of driving two 4K displays.
In addition to the HDMI 2.0 connector, there’s also a Mini DisplayPort which allows you to connect a second display. MINISFORUM says the little computer can handle up to two 4K displays at 60 Hz.
Other features include USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Type-A ports, a microSD card reader, and Windows 10 Pro software.
