Chinese PC maker EGLOBAL has been making small form-factor computers for a few years, and now the company has adapted one of its fanless mini PC designs to support 10th-gen Intel Core processors.
The computer has an aluminum chassis that measures about 8.3″ x 6.9′ x 1.8″ and which features a built-in heat sink.
While the system is larger than a typical Intel NUC (or some other mini-PCs with Intel Comet Lake chips), it should operate silently due to the lack of a fan.
EGLOBAL’s fanless mini PC is available from AliExpress with prices starting at about $400 for a barebones model with an Intel Comet Lake processor.
The starting price will get you a model with an Intel Core i7-10510U quad-core processor, but you can ugprade to a Core i7-10710U hexa-core chip for an extra $50.
The computer has two DDR4 SODIMM slots for up to 64GB of memory and multiple storage options: you can add an M.2 or MSATA SSD and/or a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.
- 1 x HDMI
- 1 x Displayport
- 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
- 4 x USB 3.0
- 4 x USB 2.0
- 1 x mic
- 1 x headphone/speaker
The system also comes with a PCIe wireless card, but the spec sheet seems to indicate that it only supports 802.11n WiFi, so unless you plan to only use the computer with a wired internet connection, you might want to invest in a replacement card or a USB dongle.
I love the idea of being fanless, but I’d worry about how well it ran without one. :O
Too. Fans of fanless computers and computers like power plants are different demographics as it seems.
