The mini PC comes with Windows 10 Home 64-bit preloaded, although I’m not sure the license will be valid at that price with 64GB storage. Accessories include an HDMI cable, a power adapter, a multi-language user manual, and a storage bag. Note that if you are looking for an fanless mini PC, you’ll have to give Acute Angle AA, as based on the exploded view below, the mini PC is actively cooled.

That board layout…
Clearly designed to work with multiple housings.
Also note the weights in the bottom of the housing.

Note that the Intel HD500 GPU cannot hardware decode 4K HDR contents.
This need at least an HD600.
What a pity, it would be nice in the living room 🙁
