This pocket PC is a desktop computer with Intel Celeron N5095

Over the past few years, a number of Chinese PC makers have released tiny desktop PCs that measure just 2.4 inches and incorporate low-power Intel Celeron processors. This year they started to shake things up a bit with the introduction of slightly larger 2.8-inch models that pack more ports and newer, faster processors.

While most new 2.8-inch mini PCs I’ve seen so far have had Intel Celeron N5105 processors, BYONE is now selling a model with a Celeron N5095 processor and 8GB of RAM.

Available from AliExpress for $370 and up, the BYONE Mini PC is available with 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of solid-state storage. It comes with Windows 10 pre-installed, supports WiFi and Bluetooth, and has a Gigabit Ethernet port.

BYONE’s product page shows a small computer with two USB 3.0 Type-A ports and a power button on the front, but there are no images of the back or sides. Still, given how much the tiny computer looks like other 2.8-inch mini PCs, I guess it’s likely it also has a third USB Type-A port on the back, a USB Type-C for power, two HDMI ports, headphone jack and microSD card reader.

As to why BYONE is offering a model in this price range with a Celeron 5095 processor, I can’t really hazard a guess, especially since models with the similar Celeron N5105 chip sell for up to $200 off. less.

Here is a comparison of the two chips:

Theoretically, I guess it’s possible that the extra 5 watts could give the Celeron N5095 a slight edge in some CPU-intensive tasks, but the chips seem to be pretty evenly matched in at least some benchmarks.

Anyway, I guess it’s good to have options – if you’ve had your eye on a 2.8-inch mini PC but were disappointed that there’s only only one processor offered, you now have the choice between two (very similar) chips.
