ASRock iBOX 1100 mini PC officially supports Windows 10, but I’d suspect Linux should also work, and ships with a 19V/90W power adapter, a screw package, a product DVD, a VESA mounting brack, and an additional bracket to install an M.2 2280 SSD.
If you’d rather install the motherboard in your own enclosure or chassis, the company also offers the Tiger Lake UP3 NUC 1100 embedded motherboards used in iBOX 1100 industrial computers.
ASRock iBOX-1185G7E, iBOX-1145G7E, iBOX-1115G4E mini PC, and corresponding NUC-1185G7E, NUC-1145G7E, NUC-1115G4E single board computers are all listed on ASRock industrial website, but you’ll have to click on the “Inquiry” button to get pricing and availability information from the company.
