Reasonable for light productivity.
Probably OK if you want a PC for your TV watching. But not for taxing gaming. Small and probably quiet (it does have a fan -- with careful design that should not be needed for an N5100).

It comes with Win 11 installed. it doesn't actually say that it is licensed.

Nice fat coupon.

If I knew this could handle HDR I'd grab it, but highly doubt it. For reasons unknown to my me Asus zenbook can't do HDR with my P2 projector which is infuriating. I have to use a super long hdmi cable from my PC to it to run hdr films. Everyone says to get a shield, but I reaaally want a desktop experience on it, not having to run some jank apps to access my NAS.

Looks similar to the beelinks that are on Amazon. As mentioned, they have a laptop sized fan to blow out excess heat but these could have been designed with a bigger heatsink so it can run passive like many of the pfsense opnsense boxes out there.

I'd get this over a raspberry pi kit. a lot more flexible.
You should be able to use this as a home NAS server (with external HDD), pi hole, plex, bt server etc.

I have the N5095 and I find it quite responsive and fast even on 8g... I'm actually shocked that this Celeron processor is alot faster than many laptops of the 600-700$ range.

I don't have the benchmarks against a 3rd gen i5 PC but I also had a i5-3770k and the N5095 with 16gb of ram felt quite a bit more responsive than my i5 3rd gen at 16gb on both WIndows 10 and 11 - productivity wise.

I am truly impressed with the Celeron N5095/N5100 series CPUs

I returned mine as this type of mini pc is too slow for dual monitors. Thought I'll keep it for the price, but after a few good ideals on laptops these couple months, it's a no-brainier to return it. Way too slow compared to a even low spec i3 laptop at around $350. Note that laptop has display screen while mini-pc doesn't so better paying $100 more for something much more powerful. My 2 cents.

Yes. This packs an UHD graphic and can support 4k60p. Intel integrated GPU since 8th gen can do 4k decide HDR without issues.

Not bad given it comes ready to go with ram and a ssd.

I have a n5105 + 4 2.5gbe ethernet ports running pfsense. I think it came in around $180 all in (aliexpress), and it performs very well + ships extremely fast (I think it was <1.5 weeks between order and delivery) - it was barebones, so no ram or ssd.

I don't think this would be worth ordering as your main desktop unless you don't use it regularly, but excellent and much more versatile than a raspberry pi to run a few self-hosted apps, eg Home Assistant (as someone mentioned), etc....

How strong is the processor for running multiple VMs? Planning on plex and home assistant VMs in the beginning.
