Vorke V1 is a Windows 10 mini PC powered by Intel Celeron J3160 quad core “Braswell” processor with 4GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, and support for an internal 2.5″ SATA drive, as well as support for dual monitor setups thanks to VGA and HDMI ports.

The mini PC is pre-loaded with Windows 10 (most certainly not activated at that price), and is said to support Windows 7/8.1, but it will most probably run Linux distributions just fine too. [Update: GeekBuying told me Windows 10 was activated, but it must be a different license than products like MINIX NGC-1, for which the company paid around $80 for the license]

The computer ships with a power adapter, a power cord, and a user’s manual. If the specifications are correct, it’s one of the rare Intel mini PC with a built-in IR receiver, and the support for an internal 2.5″ SSD or hard drive is also a plus.

Vorke V1 is currently sold on GeekBuying for $199.99, but it was listed for only $159.99 as I started this very post (sadly). [Update: VORKEV1 coupon will bring the price down back to $159.99]

How does this compare to Beelink BT7 Mini PC Intel Atom X7-Z8700 which can be had for $170 atm?
None of these seems to have LAN integrated, so is it a USB3-LAN bridge?

Really nice mini PC, I see they moved away from Intel Cherry Trail and it’s probably for the best.
Thanks for the coupon, though. I’ll probably get it from Geekbuying as suggested.

I managed to get the Dell system you posted about to boot bios based media, clonezilla, and imaged the win8 system as shipped.

Them ms upgraded to win 10, and I imaged it again.

I had to flip from uefi other bios and back, but pulled it off

I might buy one of these as a spare and try repartitioning to dual boot. Though if it’s uefi and traditional partitioning, I’m not sure how that mixes.

I’d say the mini pc is more related to the following line of Celeron based mini pcs:
http://www.cnx-software.com/2015/03/24/csq-csw9-is-a-200-intel-celeron-j1900-mini-pc-with-an-internal-hard-drive/

It has the same shape of the case, the same mechanism of housing the hard drive, the same layout of connectors, the same line of processors.

Hi,
It supports it, no problem ! I’m running the screen right now 🙂

But I have another “big” problem, I’m really not satisfied with windows 10 and tried to install win 7 but it seams impossible to install. Win7 does not have usb3 drivers but when triing on the usb2 port it’s impossible too… no mouse or keyboards when 7 starts to install…I’m searching the web for 2 days now, no soluce found…a lot of people are bloqued (with intel motherboards…nuc’s…etc…)
Anyway, thanks for your answer, your reviews are great !

I just found that it support for bitstream HD audio TrueHD and DTS HD MA when play the file with potplayer and MPC-HC my sony soundbar which support both format show it correctly with Windows 10. But when using Kodi it will not support at all and audio will be LPCM even if I’m enable for passthrough audio ac3 and dts.

Good CNX fellow recommnded me this little beauty, and he was right, this was the best recommendation ever for light office work. But right now I got a question, one of my Vorkes must work heavier than others, I am wondering if makes sense installing 8GB of RAM … there is no much more info about its processor or mainboard, so I am in a dark room about this matter.

Maybe Mr. CNX 🙂 could help me again with this doubt?
