With all the Ryzen-based mini-systems lately, you could almost forget that Intel is actually something of a top dog in this niche market with its in-house NUCs. Beelink also seems to have remembered this, because today we are looking at a mini-PC with an Intel CPU. You can read in this article how the tiny device fares against the AMD-equipped competition. 

Just how much performance is possible in the smallest of spaces with Ryzen was recently demonstrated by this manufacturer with this system:

Packaging and scope of delivery

Visually, there is a complete turnaround: Instead of the black box of the “SER” AMD mini-PCs, the “SEi” system is presented in elegant white. There is still no interesting information on the front, but the back provides precise information about the specification of the contents.  

The computer itself is once again protected by two thin layers of sponge-like material, and the manual’s paper also acts as padding. 

The scope of delivery includes a power supply, the aforementioned manual, a wall mount or monitor bracket and two HDMI 1.4 cables with 20cm and 100cm lengths. 

The power supply is a TDX-1903000E, which can supply a maximum of 57 watts at 19 volts / 3.0 amps. 

Specifications

Below is the overview of the technical details, my specimen here is equipped with an i3-8109U, but there is also a variant with an i5-8279U. As always, more information is available on the Product page from the manufacturer.
