Meenhong JX5 Intel N100 mini PC looks like a (thick) smartphone with a 5.5-inch touchscreen display

Meenhong JX5 is another Intel N100 mini PC with an integrated touchscreen display, but the 5.5-inch Full HD LCD used in this smartphone-like model is even smaller than the 7-inch display found in the HIGOLE F9B Pro and SZBOX S7 variants.

The JX5 is equipped with 12GB LPDDR5 soldered-on memory, an up to 2TB SSD, HDMI and USB-C ports for connecting larger displays, built-in stereo speakers and microphone, and a few USB ports. Network connectivity is provided by a gigabit Ethernet port and a Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 module, and a G-sensor is used to automatically set the display to portrait or landscape mode.

Intel N100 mini PC 5.5-inch touchscreen display ports

The Meenhong JX5 has several advantages over the previous models including a higher resolution 1920×1080 display (vs 1280×800) and SSD storage instead of eMMC flash, but the smaller size means it has fewer USB ports and the battery capacity is also quite lower (1500 mAh vs 5,000 mAh), meaning it will likely be good for at most one hour so it’s mostly useful to keep it running in case of power failure.

While it’s not the first Intel mini PC with a tiny 5.5-inch display, it’s hard to think what you can do with a 5.5-inch display in Windows 11 for regular use. It’s probably better suited to run an interface with a few buttons or as an information display while one or two larger displays are connected to the mini PC.

While looking for more information about Meenhong, I noticed GeekBuying sells the Meenhong JX2 which looks similar but is equipped with an older generation Intel N5105 Jasper Lake processor and a 5.7-inch display. It was released last year, so I thought I might be able to find a review, but no luck…

The Meenhong JX5 is sold on Aliexpress under the SZBOX brand starting at $210.96 for the barebone model without storage and OS, and up to $341.68 with a 2TB SSD preloaded with Windows 11.

Is it Windows only or is possible to use Linux?

I have 3 different N100 PCs and they have been working mostly well on Ubuntu 24.04. Previous 22.04 had issues with hardware video encoder of N100 and WLAN chips I had in my PCs but they work now.

I have a mini laptop of identical specs and its display just straight-up refuses to function in Linux due to a malformed edid firmware.
Even with one modified to support the modes the display – well – supports doesn’t fix it.
