Street Price: $550 USD | £567 GBP | $680 AUD
You may be surprised to know that Intel’s 10th Gen. mobile processors have been in circulation for almost a year compared to their full-fat desktop counterparts which were only released a matter of weeks ago. So, the mobile market has been able to take advantage of Comet Lake’s step-forward in terms of technology and feature-set. Such processors have mainly been utilised in the likes of ultraportable products such as ultrabooks and laptops – bringing six core functionality within reach.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at a product which takes advantage of Intel’s 10th Gen. mobile processors, but it isn’t a laptop. Instead, we’ll be focussing on the ASUS Mini PC PN62. This tiny computer system squeezes into a 115 x 115 x 49 mm enclosure, and brings with it support for USB 3.2 Gen 2, Thunderbolt 3 and much more!
Is such a dainty configuration able to perform well at everyday tasks? Let’s find out!
