MeLE PCG01 is a Windows 8.1 TV Stick with External WiFi Antenna, Optimized Thermal Design

MeLE has released their own Intel Atom Z3735F HDMI TV Stick running Windows 8.1. MeLE PCG01 looks very much like MeegoPad T01, but the company claims to be the first to include an external Wi-Fi antenna, and they’ve worked on improving power dissipation.

Thermal dissipation is achieved with a copper heatsink on the CPU, heat-conductive silicon rubber, and heat-insulative stickers on key components that should allow 24/7 operation, and the company released a “temperature rise test report” showing temperature is under control even after 13 hours of playing a high bitrate 1080p video.

MeLE PCG01 will eventually sell for $169, but pre-orders are $139 on Amazon US or Aliexpress.
