ASRock Readies the Fanless BeeBox Compact Desktop

One of ASRock's prime attractions at this year's Computex, apart from its socket LGA1151 motherboards, will be a fanless compact desktop, the BeeBox. Driven by 14 nm Intel "Braswell" Celeron N3000 series SoC, the BeeBox will pack in 2 GB or 4 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory (expandable to 8 GB using two SO-DIMM slots), 32 GB to 128 GB mSATA SSD storage, and connectivity that includes 802.11 ac WLAN, gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, four USB 3.0 ports (including one type-C port), and display outputs that include HDMI and DisplayPort. Measuring 110 mm x 46 mm x 118.5 mm, the BeeBox will be complete quiet, including its brick-type power supply.

Glossy parts look nice until dust and fingers touch them. And then you wipe them with cloth and they get scratch marks. And then it's 10 times worse. Why can't they use real aluminium or at least aluminium imitation (brushed alu). That looks premium, is very dist friendly and even if scratched, you won't be able to notice it.

This thing does use a small amount of energy but it also has low performance and I thought Intel was going to brand the Atom CPUs as Atom and not Celeron.

Depending on pricing, it sounds like we have a new ideal candidate for OpenELEC.

well it will never replace a Raspberry Pi 2 in that sector ... :roll: (OpenELEC or OSMC ...)
