Mini PCs are becoming more and more popular. While the small, fast computers were mostly to be found on the desks of offices and agencies not long ago, there has been a shift towards more home-use in the last couple of years. The reasons are obvious: Mini PCs are space-saving, affordable and offer high-performance – such as the NEO N42C-4 from MINIX.

Desktops or so-called Mini PCs are enjoying a constant growth in popularity and, according to a study by British trade analyst CONTEXT, were able to increase their sales figures substantially, especially in German-speaking countries – in Germany in Q1 2018 by around 37 percent[1]. MINIX is one of the market leaders in the field of Mini PCs and Media Hubs and, as part of this trend, is presenting its most powerful Mini PC: the NEO N42C-4.

The NEO N42C-4 offers the full performance and functionality of a desktop computer in a compact, stylish case, but can be taken anywhere due to its light weight and convenient dimensions. This Mini PC allows up to three displays to be connected via HDMI, Mini DisplayPort and USB-C outputs. The NEO N42C-4 comes with 32GB of eMMC internal memory and 4GB of DDR3L memory – but both the memory and RAM can be expanded via the 2280 M.2 slot (SATA 6.0Gbps) and a pair of SODIMM (Dual Channel Support) slots, depending on your needs. The 2280-M.2 slot (SATA 6.0 Gbps) offers an optional memory expansion up to 512 GB, while each the two SODIMM ports supports up to 8 GB of DDR3L memory.

The NEO N42C-4 offers various connection options: Three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, USB-C, Optical S/PDIF, 3.5 mm audio jack, 802.11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 4.1. Its built-in USB-C port ensures ultra-fast data transfer, video display up to 4K @ 60Hz and power supply. The active cooling solution guarantees an extremely low background noise and ensures safe and stable performance even during long periods of operation.

Another convenient aspect: The NEO-N42C-4 can be easily attached to the back of a modern monitor thanks to the included fixture, thus creating even more space and clarity on the desk. The NEO N42C-4 Mini PC is available at at a RRP of £249.90.
