After a long absence, MeLE is back on the market with a new pocket Mini PC: MeLe Quieter2 measures 131 x 81 x 18.3 mm in 200 grams and integrates a quad-core Intel Celeron J4125 (Gemini Lake Refresh) 2.0GHz processor, 8GB of RAM, Intel HD 600 GPU at 650MHz, 128GB of internal memory and all the necessary ports to become a small home theater living room, a low-power computer for the office or a digital signage device.
It runs on Windows 10 Pro but should also support the most popular Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and – as its name suggests – it’s fanless, so it’s ultra-quiet even in the heaviest operations. MeLE Quieter2 is currently available on the Chinese market at a price (at the exchange rate) of about 200 euros.
This Mini PC features LPDDR4 RAM and eMMC memory, but it also has an M.2 2280 slot that can be used to add extra storage with NVMe or SATA SSDs up to 1TB and a microSD card reader for more removable storage space up to 512GB. There’s no shortage of WiFi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2 on board, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet port.
Despite being ultra-compact, MeLe Quieter2 has a good set of interfaces that includes four USB 3.0, a USB Type-C that can be used only for power, a 3.5mm combo audio jack and two HDMI 2.0a ports, which should (theoretically) allow the connection of (up to) two 4K displays at 60Hz. Being pocket-sized, the Chinese company has also included a Kensington Lock to prevent theft.
