CSQ CSW9 is a thin Intel Celeron J1900 “Bay Trail” based mini PC that also comes with a 500GB internal hard drive, 2GB RAM, VGA and HDMI video output, and sells for a little over $200 on Aliexpress.

- SoC – Intel Celeron J1900 Quad core processor @ 2.0 GHz (base) / 2.41 GHz (Burst) with Intel HD graphics (10W TDP)

There are quite a few optional features, so it’s not always clear what’s included, but I understand you should at least get an Intel Celeron J1900 system with 2 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD (no eMMC), Ethernet, and all other ports show on the pictures.

Well this is nice but I used a laptop with a Celeron J1900 and it was kind of crappy. Waay too slow …
i have j1900 based htps and its working perfect. after putting in additional low profile AMD graphic i can play some old games and most emulators are ok too.
