The MINISFORUM S100-N100: A Pocket-Sized Compact PC
The MINISFORUM S100-N100 is the latest addition to the world of mini-PCs. Unveiled during CES 2024, this compact PC packs a punch with its Intel N100 Alder Lake-N processor. Equipped with 8GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage, the S100-N100 offers impressive performance in a petite package.
A Powerful Combination
One of the standout features of the MINISFORUM S100-N100 is its support for 2.5GbE Ethernet. This ensures a high-speed internet connection, perfect for tasks that require fast and reliable connectivity. Additionally, the S100-N100 also supports Power over Ethernet (PoW), allowing users to enjoy power delivery through a single cable.
Compact Design, Big Capabilities
Despite its small size, the MINISFORUM S100-N100 does not compromise on functionality. It features WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 support, ensuring seamless wireless connectivity. The inclusion of a USB 3.1 Type-C port allows for versatile power and data usage. Moreover, the S100-N100 boasts two USB 3.1 Type-A ports and an HDMI interface, providing convenient connectivity options.
A PC Stick Alternative
The MINISFORUM S100-N100 can be seen as a PC stick due to its compact form factor. However, unlike traditional PC sticks, it features a conventional HDMI port. This means that users will need an HDMI cable to connect the device to a TV or monitor. In contrast, typical PC-on-a-stick systems incorporate an HDMI connector for direct plugging into a display.
Pricing and Availability
At this time, MINISFORUM has not disclosed the pricing details for the S100-N100 compact PC. Additionally, the availability of the product in the international market remains uncertain. However, it is expected that this new PC will be released later this year, offering customers a powerful and portable computing solution.
In addition to the MINISFORUM S100-N100, the company also showcased other products during CES 2024, such as the UH185 Ultra mini PC. This particular model features a Core Ultra CPU and a touch-enabled display at the front, further expanding MINISFORUM’s range of compact computing options.
