It looks smaller than most mobile speakers. Despite that, the EUAST Mini PC is actually a desktop PC that can run a full build of Windows or Linux, allowing you to use it as a full-fledged home or work computer powerful enough to run most productivity software, multimedia apps, and simple games alike.
How compact is this small form factor PC? The enclosure measures just 2.3 x 1.9 x 2.3 inches (height x width x depth) while weighing 4.4 ounces, making for a machine that the outfit describes as “the smallest mini PC.” At that size, you can forget about hiding it behind the monitor – you can probably hide this thing behind the monitor stand with no trouble.
The EUAST Mini PC is equipped with a custom motherboard that the outfit describes as “extremely difficult to solder” because of its extremely cramped design. It’s equipped with an Intel Celeron J4125, a quad-core system-on-a-chip originally released back in 2019, so it’s not that old of a system. The CPU has a base frequency of 2 GHz and a single-core burst of up to 2.7 GHz, with a 750MHz Intel UHD integrated graphics, so it can run a good load of games on low-quality settings. It pairs the SoC with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 512GB of SSD storage, too, which gives it enough memory and storage capacity to run majority of applications out there.
Despite the diminutive size, it’s not lacking in ports, coming with two USB-C slots, two USB-A, one Mini DisplayPort, one HDMI slot, gigabit Ethernet, and even a 3.5mm slot for audio. That’s right, this tiny thing has two display outputs, both of which support full 4K resolutions. According to the outfit, you can use a split adapter on each of the two display outputs to connect up to four monitors, although they should be maxing out at 1080p apiece. Yeah, we probably won’t even try that, since hooking up a pair of monitors will probably be too taxing for this little thing already.
The EUAST Mini PC comes with both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth built-in, so it even has wireless connectivity baked into its tiny frame, making it as easy to integrate into your home network as any desktop. It has an all-aluminum housing, so this should be just as durable as any PC you have at home, as well as a built-in fan that allows it to manage temperature much better. Yep, they supposedly fit an actual cooling fan in there, too.
What can you do with this thing? If you spend most of your computer time using browser apps or simple productivity apps, we have a feeling you can use this as a primary PC. It can also make a good home computer for kids who need a PC for school and basic entertainment. Like many small form factor computers, it should work great as a home theater PC, a PC for managing your network-attached storage, or just a backup PC for when you need one at home.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the EUAST Mini PC. You can reserve a unit for pledges starting at around $200.
