Packaging and Contents


When it comes to the box, it's not plain in design, but lacks a lot of substance in regards to specifications and information. The top simply reads "Mini PC Series" and "ASRock Industrial." A quick flip to the front is much the same, and the trend continues on the back of the box as well. Suffice it to say, it might look a somewhat pretty, but lacks any substance. While this isn't a problem, it's still nice to see some specifications, or other information.


The 4X4 BOX-4800U comes sealed in a white bag, in a cardboard tray that sits inside a separate tray containing a driver disc, VESA mounting plate, and assorted hardware.


When it comes to the included hardware, ASRock provides the minimum needed to get the system operational once you have your system memory and storage sorted out. As this is a barebones system, you will need those two things to complete it. To test the system, I was sent 2x 32 GB of 3200 MHz CL22 DDR4 memory and a 512 GB M.2 SSD from Patriot. The memory retails for around $110 per stick and the SSD for $60. Obviously, these parts greatly increase the price.
