Introducing the JB95, a mini PC from Minisforum. …I’m sorry, I’m completely late to the party, or rather, I’m late to the article. This product has no information on Minisforum’s official website, but is being sold in Japan by Links International, and although the specs are low for a Minisforum product, the price is low enough that it could compete well with mini PCs sold through Chinese mail order.
The CPU of MINI PC Minisforum JB95 is a Jasper Lake generation Celeron N5095. I have already reviewed TRIGKEY Green G2 mini PC with the same CPU on my web site, please refer to this review article for benchmark score.
The N5095 is a new development and a desktop CPU, so it is close to the older generation of Core processors, and I think it will run comfortably enough for relatively light applications such as using Office software, watching videos, and browsing the web.
The RAM is 8GB and the storage is 128GB SSD, but we don’t know the status of the “free slots” as we usually write in our Minisforum product introduction articles; we don’t know if the RAM is onboard or slotted, but we do know that the storage is an M.2 2280 SATA SSD. We don’t know if the RAM is onboard or slotted, but we do know that the storage is an M.2 2280 SATA SSD, so it should be possible to replace it at least. For this product, you’d want to go with a 256GB SSD or higher.
In terms of communication, Wi-Fi6 is not supported, and there are five USB ports, HDMI, DP, and a wired LAN port. However, if you also want to connect a webcam or speakers, you may find it a bit lacking. Unlike notebook PCs, mini-PCs have a variety of peripherals that you may want to connect. Also, there is no SD card reader.
