Tronsmart BJ19 Mini PC based on Intel Celeron J1900 Sells for $60 (Promo)

Tronsmart BJ19 is a barebone mini PC powered by Intel Celeron J1900 quad core “Bay Trail-D” processor with SO-DIMM slots for memory, and a SATA interface for a 2.5″ hard drive or SSD in a form factor similar to Intel NUC. It was launched last year, but GeekBuying is probably getting rid of stock, as it is selling it for just $59.99 shipped.

Tronsmart_BJ19Let’s remind us of the specs:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron J1900 Quad core processor  @ 2.0 GHz (base) / 2.41 GHz (burst) with Intel HD graphics (10W TDP)
  • System Memory –  DDR3L 1333/1666 MHz SO-DIMM slot
  • Storage – 2.5″ SATA hard drive or SSD
  • Video Output – mini HDMI + mini DisplayPort
  • Audio – mini HDMI, 3.5 mm jack for headphone and MIC-in
  • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, mPCIe Wi-Fi (2.4GHz) and Bluetooth 4.0 module
  • USB – 3x USB 2.0 host ports, 1x USB 3.0 port.
  • Misc – Power button, power LED
  • Power Supply – 19V/2.1A
  • Dimensions –  116.6 x 112 x 5.1 mm
  • Weight – ~360 grams

Tronsmart_BJ19_NUC_DescriptionThe specifications are not too bad, and the device should run Windows or Linux distributions pretty well. You’ll also need to add your own memory, and assuming you create a system with 4GB RAM, and  500GB HDD, you’d get yourself a very decent platform for about $140. The system comes with an internal fan, so if you need a fanless device that’s not for you.

Thanks to Peter for the tip.

J1900 is one of the SOCs that have problems with the later Linux kernels. I have had good results with Debian 8.3, it also runs noticably cooler than Ubuntu or Mint. Too bad none left.
