InuoMicro G4305L8-S2 is a relatively inexpensive fanless industrial PC box powered by an Intel Celeron 4305U Whiskey Lake processor that offers eight 2.5GbE ports making the system suitable for firewall and other networking applications.
The barebone computer supports up to 32GB RAM, one mSATA SSD, one 2.5-inch SATA drive, and also provides interfaces such as HDMI and DisplayPort video outputs and a few USB ports allowing the user as a standard computer. Wireless connectivity can be implemented through mini PCIe and/or M.2 4G LTE and WiFi modules.

While the company says the G4305L8-S2 is an “industrial” PC Box the operating temperature range is only from 0 to 50°C. Supported operating systems include Windows 10, Linux, Ubuntu, fPsense, CentOS, and Untangle. Windows 11 is not listed, but the Intel Celeron 4305U is in the list of processors supported by the latest operating system from Microsoft.
InuoMicro sells the barebone G4305L8-S2 box PC on Amazon for $203.I could not find it anywhere else, but I would not be surprised if it was just an OEM model, and it may soon show up under other brands.
