Ultra compact mini PC’s are becoming more and more popular and if you just need a silent energy efficient computer to use as a powerful media server or even as a full fledged working station then it’s perfect for you. And today we have for you a Geekbuying presale offer for the very interesting Vorke V2 coming with a fantastic price considering what’s in the box.
Most of the compact barebone systems are coming pretty much not fully equipped and you need to fill it with extra hardware parts to get the fully assembled PC. That’s not the case with Vorke V2, because it packs just about everything right out of the box. So what’s inside this little box ?
For starters the 6th Gen Skylake processors, either the i5-6200U or more powerful I7-6500U, both commonly used ultrabook ULV models. There is no word about the cooling so no idea if they went the full passive way, but even if not you can expect extremely silent performance anyway. These Skylake processors are also packing Intel HD Graphics 520 and there is already 8 GB DDR3L RAM installed in the box.
As for the storage you have to choice of 128 or 256 GB SSD disk capacity installed in the M.2 slot and there is even an optional 2.5″ SATA 3 HDD bay available inside. Connectivity is also great with gigabit ethernet, dualband ac Wi-Fi, 4 USB ports (2 x 2.0 and 2 x 3.0), USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 4.0 and HDMI 1.4a. All in 129 x 124 x 39 mm compact body and with VESA mounting bracket included. Ubuntu 16.04 is pre-installed as the OS, but nothing stops you from putting another system of your choice there easily.
And now it gets interesting when we finally have the chance to look at the pricetags. I have to say it’s extremely competitive, because for such price you usually get the barebone shell without memory and drives. You can find all the combinations below with the proper coupon attached.
