MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PC

MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PCThis MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PC runs on an ATOM Intel X5-Z8300 processor (favoured by tablets as well), and incredibly low power consumption chip even compared to my J1900 Celeron. There are three USB 2.0 ports, one USB 3.0 slot, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi AC, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 1.4 and mini DisplayPort, this provides most casual computer users with everything they need. I would recommend this for light CPU/computing tasks, like web browsing, term processing, spreadsheets, 1080p movies etc.

MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PCThe MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PC doesn’t have a recovery media nevertheless, you may download from Microsoft and create a USB install for it (and the merchandise Key is embedded in to the UEFI). Reinstalling Windows could be a breeze if you download the drivers from their forums, but I had to do it through Device Supervisor. The AC Wi-Fi adapter did present an issue but was rectified by updating Windows to the most recent cumulative update.

MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PCYouTube 4K video clips are only possible when working with EDGE browser because of the way the browser accesses equipment decodes for that codec. With 32GB eMMC storage, after Windows 10 HOME edition installation, you are left with around 13GB for apps. This could be solved using USB or iSCSI (thx to its gigabit connection). I’ve not encountered any main complications using it and visited their community forums for even more in-depth reading because the state website doesn’t seem helpful at all.

I will try a Linux distro on it soon, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t function. Looking forward to what else MINIX provides.
