The mini PC ships with Windows 10 Pro and supports Ubuntu Linux. Accessories include 20cm and 1m HDMI cables, the power adapter, and a wall-mount bracket.
There’s no information about the USB-C port function (e.g. DisplayPort Alt Mode), we don’t know if there’s a TPM 2.0 security chip for Windows 11 compatibility, and cooling is achieved with a thermal board and a “quiet big fan” for “efficient heat dissipation”.
Beelink explains the design is similar to the GK55 mini PC powered by Celeron J4125 Gemini Lake processor, but with only one Ethernet port instead of two, and U59 comes with the exact same accessories. It looks like the long promised Jasper Lake devices are here, after various delays including the Newsmay AC8 that was supposed to start mass-production in mid-May 2021, and the Chuwi Hi10 Go tablet that has shipped since August. We’ll soon find out how it performs as Ian should get a sample for his usual review with Windows and Ubuntu.
