MeLE PCG02 Pro N100 slim mini PC

The MeLE PCG02 Pro “mini PC stick” is now available with an Intel Processor N100 Alder Lake-N CPU after being first introduced with an Intel Celeron J4125 (Gemini Lake Refresh) or Celeron N5105 (Jasper Lake) processor in 2022. Just like the MINIX Z100-0dB mini PC we’ve just reviewed, the MeLE PCG02 Pro has a fanless design, but with a slim design that’s just 20mm thick, up to 16GB RAM, up to 256GB eMMC flash, two 4K-capable HDMI ports, Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi 5, three USB 3.2 ports, a microSD card, and a USB-C port for power only.

MeLE Quieter4C ultrathin fanless Intel N100 mini PC supports up to three displays

MeLE Quieter4C

MeLE has just launched a new model from its Quieter family with the Quieter4C ultrathin fanless mini PC powered by an Intel Processor N100 quad-core Alder Lake-N processor, 8GB to 16GB LPDDR4, and 128GB to 512GB eMMC+SSD storage, and supporting up to three independent 4K displays. Intel N100 mini PCs have become popular due to their excellent price/performance ratio, but although a few are fanless, many are actively cooled, and the Quieter4C differentiates itself by its low profile with the system being just 18.3 mm thick. MeLE Quieter4C specifications: SoC – Intel Processor N100 quad-core Alder Lake-N processor @ up to 3.4 GHz (Turbo) with 6MB cache, 24EU Intel HD graphics @ 750 MHz; TDP: 6W System Memory – 8GB or 16GB LPDDR4X Storage 128GB or 256GB eMMC flash Optional 256GB M.2 SSD (for 512GB storage in total) via M.2 2280 SATA III/PCIe Gen3 x4 socket MicroSD card reader Video […]

MeLE Overclock4C is an ultrathin pocket-sized mini PC powered by an Intel Processor N95 CPU

MeLE Overclock4C

Mele Overclock4C is an Intel Processor N95 Alder Lake-N mini PC with an ultrathin (21mm) design which, as its name implies, supports “overclocking”, although what it really means here is the ability to increase the PL1 and PL2 power limits in the BIOS/UEFI in order to increase performance without actually changing the top frequency of the processor… It’s the same idea and virtually the same design as the MeLE Overclock3C which boosts the TDP of the Celeron N5095 Jasper Lake processor up to 18W instead of the 15W default. Here the TDP of the Processor N95 is likely boosted up to 20 Watts (as per Intel Ark) delivering a 33% performance improvement over the Celeron N5095. The Overclock4C is available with 16GB or 32GB DDR4, a 256GB eMMC flash, and a 256GB SSD. MeLE Overclock4C specifications: SoC – Intel Processor N95 quad-core Alder Lake N-series processor @ up to 3.4 […]

MeLE Overclock3C mini PC boosts Celeron N5095 performance with a 18W TDP

MeLE Overclock3C

MeLE Overclock3C is an ultrathin mini PC based on an Intel Celeron N5095 Jasper Lake processor, but instead of using the default 15W TDP, the company is pushing the processor harder than usual with the TDP set to 18W which should provide more performance in theory, as long as cooling is working well. The rest of the specifications are pretty standard with up to 16GB DDR4 SO-DIMM memory, up to 512GB storage,  two HDMI 2.0 ports, a 3.5mm audio jack, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, as well as four USB 3.2 ports. MeLE Overclock3C specifications: SoC – Intel Celeron N5095 quad-core Jasper Lake processor @ 2.0GHz /  2.9GHz (Turbo) with 4MB cache, 16EU Intel UHD Graphics; TDP: 18W (up TDP) Memory / Storage options 4GB single-channel DDR4 upgradeable up to 32GB, 128GB eMMC flash, M.2 NVMe socket 8GB single-channel DDR4 upgradeable up to 32GB, 256GB eMMC flash, M.2 […]

MeLE Quieter2D ultrathin fanless mini PC is now available without an operating system

MeLE Quieter2D mini PC no OS

Barring barebone models, most mini PCs sell with Windows 10 or Windows 11 pre-installed, and that’s not ideal for people wanting to run Linux only since they also pay extra for the license of an operating system they are not going to use. But MeLE is now selling the Quieter2D mini PC with an Intel Celeron N4000 dual-core processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB or 128GB eMMC storage for $139.99 and up without an operating system or a Windows key. The ultrathin fanless mini PC also features M.2 2280 SATA/NVMe socket, a microSD card reader, two HDMI 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet and WiFi 5 connectivity, four USB 3.0 ports, and takes 12V power input through a USB Type-C port. MeLE Quieter2D specifications: SoC – Intel Celeron N4000 dual-core Gemini Lake processor @ 1.1GHz / 2.6GHz (Turbo) with Intel UHD Graphic 600; 6W TDP System Memory – 4GB LPDDR4 Storage – 64GB […]

He found them to have similar performance, with the smaller PCG02 Pro lacking an M.2 NVMe slot, having fewer ports, and not supporting DisplayPort Alt. mode on its USB Type-C port. The PCG02 Pro comes with two HDMI ports for dual display setups, while the Quieter3C offers one HDMI port, one mini DisplayPort, and a USB-C port […]

MeLE PCG02 Pro Review – A Fanless Intel Celeron J4125 / N5105 mini PC with an ultra-compact form factor

MeLE PCG02 Pro review

MeLE has launched a new ‘stick’ mini PC called the PCG02 Pro. It comes in two models featuring either a mobile Gemini Lake Refresh or a Jasper Lake processor. Both models appear physically similar however the memory, WiFi, Bluetooth, and USB ports differ plus only the lower-powered model includes an M.2 NVMe or SATA slot. MeLE kindly sent both models for review and I’ve looked at the performance running both Windows and Ubuntu. MeLE PCG02 Pro hardware overview The MeLE PCG02 Pro physically consists of a 146 x 61 x 20mm (5.75 x 2.40 x 0.79 inches) rectangular plastic case that ‘wraps’ around a plastic inner frame. The outside of the case has a knurled or cross-hatched pattern (engineered to provide high thermal conductivity) and the inner frame has the WiFi antennas glued to it. As passively cooled mini PCs, the first model known as the PCG02 Pro J4125 uses […]
