Over the past few years, Beelink has launched several mini-computers based on Apollo Lake, and despite the fact that in their latest models, such as Beelink S2 or Beelink X45, they used the processors of the Gemini Lake family, the company recently launched a new model based on Apollo Lake. The new client computer Beelink KT03 is equipped with an Intel Celeron J3455 processor, the main difference from other mini-PCs of this company is that it is sold without RAM and without a storage (or OS), it comes with two DB9 RS-232 connectors, and two ports of Gigabit Ethernet.
The rectangular and black color housing of the mini-PC is extremely compact with dimensions of 144 × 130 × 35 mm. The frame is made of one piece and is made of metal. Front and back are each different connection options. The device includes 2 COM Ports, 4 USB 3.0 Ports, a dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, two audio input and output jacks, and a mini PCIe for attaching the likes of a WiFi, 4G module or Bluetooth module. It comes with a socket for two 3G SIM cards. It is evident that the mini PC is more for industrial use with the inclusion of 2 RS-232 ports. Storage options are possible through a SATA3 Port available and an optional mSATA. Power is through a DC jack and consumption is rated at about 12V/3A.
The computer is equipped with an Intel Celeron J3455 processor of the Apollo Lake generation. This chip is manufactured using 14-nanometer technology. It contains four cores with a nominal frequency of 1.5 GHz and the possibility of increasing to 2.3 GHz. For processing, graphics meet the integrated controller Intel HD Graphics 500. You can use up to 8 GB of RAM DDR3L-1333/1600/1867. A single 2.5-inch drive and a solid-state mSATA SSD can be installed. Beelink is usually accustomed to releasing a mini PC with a pre-installed operating system of either Linus or a Windows OS, but the KT03 variant doesn’t come with any pre-installed operating system giving users the full power of customization to their taste. Just like other miniPCs, the Beelink KT03 is compatible with both Linux and Windows 10 operating system. Also, it doesn’t come with any installed RAM but supports up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM.
The Beelink KT03 is meant to find applications in industrial, commercial and research applications. It comes with a staggering connectivity option and support for connecting up to 3 screens at once, something you won’t find in their other products. The instant three screen connectivity is possible due to the availability of two HDMI ports and one extra VGA port. The HDMI version is HDMI 1.4 which supports 4000 resolutions at only 24 or 30 frames per second, which work fine for movies, but is not so useful for higher-end gaming, which requires 50 or 60 frames per seconds (FPS).
The Beelink KT03 is a barebone system that is offered without a RAM module, drives and a software platform. These elements the buyer will be able to choose at his own discretion. We can buy it from Geekbuying at $149.99 with applying this coupon code: OBULKXJW
