Beelink S2 Gemini Lake Mini PC Comes with an Intel Pentium N5000 Silver Processor, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD

I’ve written about Beelink S2 mini PC based on Intel Celeron N4100 Gemini Lake processor several times, simply because the motherboard appears to be used in other OEM models including Alfawise T1 and CHUWI GBox among others.

However, all models I covered so far only came with 4 GB RAM, and 64GB storage, and Intel Celeron N4100 processor, so if you need something with more memory and storage, as well as a faster processor GeekBuying is now taking orders for Beelink S2 with Intel Pentium N5000, 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. Price: $299.99 including shipping. (Use GLVNTDXW coupon for discount)

why would you buy any of this when intel nuc is 25% less ?

Yeah, ridiculous pricing really!

In addition to being cheaper, all the J-series cpus used in the NUC line have significant real-world performance benefits.
Actually I would not recommend these N-series pc’s for tasks where users need to interact directly with a responsive system.

Send me the link to a Intel Nuc with the same specs for USD 225,please.

NUC7PJYH (179 euro) + G.Skill Ripjaws 2400 SODIMM 8GB (dual channel, 97 euro) + Samsung 860 EVO 250GB (79 euro) cost around 350 euro.

Tried cheapest option as available from local shop.

Just checked at Amazon France…. 335 Euros with a Sandisk SSD, it means USD 300 (this one) vs USD 400 NUC

Is the 8GB RAM dual channel? Two modules?

Is it fanless?

They should aim for $240 without 128GB SSD and add m.2 SATA slot. I’d click that buy button so fast.

N5000 vs J5005 has pretty similar processing results (J a little better as in base clock, max clock for J5005 is 2.8GHz but only for 1 core, multicore 2.7GHz)

GPU difference not big either, both have 605, only J has small increase in clocks.

but it’s not really that much more to get a proper i3 processor!

The 199.99 version is good enough for my daily work, such PC won’t run games anyway. but I’m also interested in the Chuwi Gbox, better brand and much more stylish. Same specs all around, anyone give my some suggestions?

A Ryzen alternative would be nice to see.

Indeed. Even though those has higher TDP, those Ryzen 2 with 35W would be nice to have (with fan ofc) in a small mini pc enclosure, if possible.
