Featuring a sleek and slim profile measuring just 20mm thick, the MeLE PCG02 Pro offers impressive specifications. It supports up to 16GB of RAM and includes up to 256GB of eMMC flash storage. Equipped with two 4K-capable HDMI ports, users can enjoy high-definition multimedia content effortlessly.

The MeLE PCG02 Pro mini PC stick arrives with a power supply featuring EU/US/UK/AU plug adapters, a VESA mount kit, and a user manual. While the MeLE PCG02 Pro Surpass ships with Windows 11 Pro, Ubuntu Linux is also compatible. Ian’s review in December 2022 found satisfactory performance with both Windows 11 Pro and Ubuntu 22.04, although the N5105 model exhibited subpar WiFi 5 performance. The “Classic” variant features an M.2 slot, but it’s absent in the “Outperform” and “Surpass” models due to space constraints. Users desiring a fanless N100 system with an M.2 socket may consider the MeLE Quieter4C.

The MeLE PCG02 Pro Surpass with an Intel N100 CPU can be purchased on Aliexpress for $222.30 (8GB+128GB) or $232.30 (8GB+256GB), but you can pay lower than say by selecting the 10% off coupon on the page. It is also listed on Amazon for $199.99 with 128GB flash.
