Jesurun Maxone Allwinner A80 mini PC with 4GB RAM Sells for $184 (Promo)

Yesterday, I discovered DealExtreme listed four versions of new Allwinner A80 mini PC called Jesurun Maxone, with a combination of 2GB RAM/16GB Flash, or 4GB RAM/32GB flash, and US or EU power adapters, for respectively $167.40 and $207. But after a closer look, I found out those boxes are probably based on the same hardware used for Tronsmart Draco AW80 Meta and Telos, minus the external Wi-Fi antenna, and the price was a little higher so I did not feature this device in a new article. But today, GearBest provided a coupon code (JM4GCN) allowing to get Maxone 4GB RAM for $183.99, or about $15 discount compared to Draco AW80 Telos. They’ve also provided JM2GCN coupon for the 2GB RAM version, but the price ($149.99) is almost exactly the same as Draw AW80 Meta. Remember that when shopping online from oversea websites, you may be hit by custom duties back home, so try to estimate the duty (if any) in advance, as a $150 device may end up costing $300 in some countries once you include all potential fees (VAT, import duty, courier customs service charge, etc..)

Jesurun_MaxoneJesurun Maxone specifications are indeed exactly the same as the Tronsmart Draco AW80 boxes:

  • SoC – AllWinner Ultra Core A80 4x Cortex 15 @ 1.8 GHz, 4x Cortex A7 @ 1.3 GHz big.LITTLE processor with Imagination Technologies PowerVR GC6230 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 1.1/2.0/3.0, Directx 9.3
  • System Memory – 2GB or 4GB DDR3 depending on model
  • Storage – 16 GB or 32GB eMMC  (depending on model), SD card slot up to 32GB, and SATA port (via a USB 2.0/3.0 bridge)
  • Video  Output – HDMI 1.4b + AV port
  • Audio – HDMI, AV, and optical S/PDIF
  • (Main) Video Codecs – H.265/VP9 up to 1080p @ 30 fps (software decode?), H.264/VP8 up to 4K2K @ 30fps, 1080p120, or 720p240
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac with external antenna, Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB – 1x USB 3.0 OTG port (full size), 2x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Misc – IR receiver
  • Power Supply – 12V/2A
  • Dimensions – 14.8 x 14.8.4 x 2.3 cm
  • Weight – 301 grams

The only difference is that it’s apparently lighter (301 grams vs 442 grams), and the dimensions are also different with Jesurun Maxone being a smaller product (14.8 cm vs 16.4 cm). This is possible even if Maxone and Draco AW80 are based on the same hardware, because as you can check in my unboxing post, the PCBA is smaller than the enclosure for Draco AW80.

Including accessories are also almost the same with a 12V/2A power adapter, a SATA cable, an HDMI cable, the same IR remote control, and a quick start guide in English. The only thing “missing” is a USB to USB cable which can be useful if you want to upgrade the firmware with LiveSuite or PhoenixCard tools, or use the ADB connection.

Seems that it’s an OEM product, but not sure who actually makes it. Here’s another: http://www.sunchip-tech.com/prod_view.aspx?TypeId=11&Id=66&FId=t3:11:3

So is the A80 able to achieve the Allwinner claimed speeds of 2GHz+ or is the up to 1.8GHz in shipping devices closer to reality for running ?

Is the lighter weight due to smaller or no heatsink ?

At the moment Tronsmart Draco Meta costs $139 on Geek Buying and Telos costs $179.

This is very strange. When I posted the prices were what I said. Same links. Not nice, Geek Buying!

Is there a firmware for 6.0? Have only seen the possibility for 5.0.
