ASRock uBOX is a mini PC with Bay Trail chip

ASRock has launched the uBOX, which is a mini PC, based on the Intel Bay Trail platform. The Taiwanese company wants USD 250 for it, which might be a fair price for what the computer offers. This is up to you to decide, though.

The uBOX measures 135 x 116 x 25.4 mm and is based on a dual-core Intel Bay Trail Celeron N2930 processor at 1.83 GHz (up to 2.16 GHz in Turbo Mode). The chip has Intel HD graphics and sports TDP of just 7.5 watts. This is the reason why the ASRock uBOX does not come with a cooling fan – instead the device is cooled by its chassis, which looks like a large heat sink.

The new mini computer can work with up to 8 GB of DDR3L SODIMM memory and works with an mSATA hard drive. You will also find a Gigabit Ethernet controller for up to two connections, Realtek ALC662 sound, one USB 2.0 port, one USB 3.0 port, microUSB, HDMI and microHDMI connectors. This allows the uBOX to work with up to two displays at the same time.

The ASRock uBOX is available now for USD 250 but for this money you can only get the device as a barebone computer. For USD 100 more you can get 4 GB of RAM and a 32 GB flash memory disk.
