Morefine M9 is one of the first mini PCs I’ve seen sold with the 6W Intel Processor N100 Alder Lake-N quad-core processor and the price is not too bad with $199 asked for a barebone model on Aliexpress.
The mini PC supports up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, is sold up with up to 1TB NVMe SSD, and features two 4K-capable HDMI 2.0 ports, 2.5 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet, a WiFi 6 & Bluetooth 5.2 module, as well as four USB 3.2 ports.

Alder Lake-N processors are supposed to succeed the Jasper Lake family and the Intel Processor N100 mini PC is said to offer 20% faster overall system performance compared to a system with an Intel Celeron N5105 Jasper Lake processor in some unknown (to me) benchmark.
The Morefine M9 is not the very first Intel Processor N100 mini PC we’ve covered since we wrote about the upcoming MSI Cubi N ADL mini PC earlier this month, but the advantage is that the M9 can be purchased now for $199 for the barebone model and up to $403.51 with 32GB RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD.
