Now, the most popular product type is the “China Mini PC”. But most of the small PCs recently sold on mail-order sites in China are “worried about OS licenses,” and it’s unsettling to post an introduction on Wain-Tab. No matter how cheap the price is, if it is necessary to purchase an OS (Windows 10), the cost of “+ $159.99 or more” will be increased. Therefore, there is no ambiguity about whether the OS is published in the win tab. On the contrary, if it is clear that there is no OS, I would like to make it a story.
The CHUWI GBox Pro introduced this time clearly states the pre-installation of “Authorized Windows 10” on the manufacturer’s website. I think it’s OK. Ah, the factory is also CHUWI.
The price of this product is very low and the specifications are absolutely not high. The CPU is the frost x7-E3950 for embedded applications. There is no clear information about the performance of this CPU. In the Win-Tab, a few days ago, a real-machine review was made of the notebook “CHUWI HeroBook” with embedded CPU “Atom x5-E8000” (the x5-E8000 is not much different from the commonly used Atom x5-Z8350, such as tablets), while the x7-E3950 model is “x7”. However, you must be an entry-level CPU.
RAM is 4GB and storage capacity is 64GB eMMC. This is also a common configuration for the cheapest tablets and laptops, but the product can add SATA-connected hard drives. It could be 2.5 inches in size, so the SSD could be there (the size of the SATA drive bracket is not yet conclusive).
There are more input/output ports than laptops. Because small PCs are “small desktop PCs,” it’s natural to have more ports than laptops in a sense. There are five USB ports in total. The video output ports of HDMI and D-sub systems, as well as the wired LAN, are fully configured in practical applications.
China’s miniature PCs are sometimes cooler plastic shells, but they are made of CNC-processed aluminum, with sloping and red design tones on the top, giving a stylish feel. This area deserves to be CHUWI.
In addition, the product is also fan-free design. China’s mini-PCs have no fans and have fans, but since the CPU is Atom and the performance can’t be said to be very high, I think the fan-free structure is easier to use for a few segments.
Location of side and input/output ports. Ports are located in the front and back. For peripheral removal, the high standard (USB 3.0) port and microSD reader are configured in the front and the communication system and video system ports are configured in the back.
In addition, there are VESA compliant screw holes that can be mounted on the back of the display. Banggood’s product page is not listed, but may also include brackets.
CHUWI GBox Pro is being sold on Banggood, a mail-order website in China, for $159.99 as of Nov. 3, with coupon code “BGSWGBX” of $129.99.
In terms of specifications, as the main PC for WainTab readers, I feel a little worried. But I think there are a lot of people with mobile laptops as well, and it’s important to work and watch animation and other entertainment in your home as an accessory to people with slightly larger monitors (although you’ll need to buy them separately). In fact, I work in my own home with a combination of “mini-PC+23. 8-inch monitor + mechanical keyboard,” but because I’ve never worked as hard as a PC before, I’m not too dissatisfied with the processing performance and can comfortably write about Wimbledon a large screen.
In addition, writer natsuki wrote such a report. This can also be said to be an effective use of small PCs. Mini-PC as a NAS (File Server) used for 4 months, practical! -I also measured the electricity bill you care about (natsuki)
Well, the price is also the price. It’s not bad to buy as a preparatory machine first.
