ASUS PN41 rave reviews

Available for $169 the Japer Lake barebone is powered by the 6W Celeron N4500 and features five USB ports including a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port with DisplayPort 1.4 support, as well as built-in 2.5 Gbps Ethernet. The PN41 supports DDR4 3200MHz SO-DIMM memory and a 2.5" SSD.

✓ I bought one early Sep last year, it was cheaper. Bought 16G laptop memory and 512G M2. SSD same day. FANLESS is the only reason to buy, though I had waited for a fanless AMD CPU for a long time. Most of the time I use this PC to remote control my workstation in company, run MS Team and Office 365 while YouTube playing music in background. It is not a gaming PC, not powerful but just enough. Still waiting for an AMD fanless one!

 I was pleasantly surprised by this little box. I was able to install non-windows OSes very easily and the USB-c port on the back fully supported power/IO/Display (made setting it up very easy using my monitor's usb-c cable). I'm looking forward to the next release of Kodi (that supports Intel HDR playback) to replace a small under-powered SOC-based device I currently use (which easily chokes on non-playback tasks). I was also shocked that HDMI-CEC was supported so prominently in the BIOS but not mentioned anywhere (that I could find) in marketing for this thing. Pair this box with at least 8GB ram and some storage and you've got a killer Media playback machine.

 This supports hardware transcode for plex. It doesn’t seem to heat up as I had thought.
