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.

  1. It would be a perfekt media mini PC for me if they would make something like this with a fanless case. — they are out of stock —

  2. UEFI, i have one. Too many problems to install limux and by the moment only 1280 not full hd. See the tronsmart forum before buy.

  3. 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.
