VX2 Celeron J1800 / J1900 mini PCs with 500GB Hard Drive Sell for $180 and Up (Promo)

Orange Pi Development Boards

CSQ CSW9 is an Intel Celeron J900 based mini PC with a 500GB HDD that normally sells for a little over $200 on Aliexpress once shipping is included. But today, as I found a list of Geekbuying Coupons via Google+, I noticed the device was listed on Geekbuying as VX2, and both Celeron J1800 and J1900 versions were available for respectively $179.99 and $189.99 after applying MYMVECMY coupon, which looks like a decent deals since a 500GB 2.5″ SATA drive costs about $45.

VX2_mini_PCSpecifications listed on Geekbuying are mostly the same as for CSQ CSW9 except some difference highlighted in bold or stricken-through when removed:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron J1800 dual core processor @ 2.41 GHz (base) / 2.58 GHz (burst),  or J1900 Quad core processor  @ 2.0 GHz (base) / 2.41 GHz (Burst) with Intel HD graphics (10W TDP)

The computer only ships with its power supply, is said to come with Windows 8.1 pre-installed (likely without proper license), and the company claims Android & Windows 8.1 Dual Boot, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.. can also be installed.

GeekBuying $50 coupon in only valid until April 14,2015. although I’ve seen them withdraw coupons earlier, if a promotion is a bit too popular… An alternative is eBay where VX2 J1800 sells for $188.99 and VX2 J1900 for $197.99.

Those vents on the side make me suspect this has a fan – fail.

I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. Having installed and tested of course Windows on a Celeron J1800 I must say it really has an appalling performance in Windows 8.1.
Maybe if you install some light weight Linux or something this would be usable but there’s better stuff out there for sale.
There’s some fanless mini PCs using Celeron CPUs based on the core architecture that would be a much better choice and the price is about the same.
For a bit more money you could also get a fanless I3 miniPC which would really put this thing to shame so …
