With many thanks to GearBest, today we received this new model, Alfawise T1 Mini PC, which is equipped with Intel latest Gemini Lake N4100 CPU, and it may be the world’s first Gemini Lake Mini PC you can buy now in the market. We are here to talk about the first impression of this device. Check for price and more details.
We are deeply impressed by this device’s its storage options with one internal SATA bay for 2.5-inch disks located at the bottom and one internal M.2 connector where we can connect another SSD with this interface. Moreover, Alfawise T1 marks these features at the color box in a picture style, as well as accessories and product spotlights, so that users can understand the functions easily.
Compared with other brands’ simple designs without any useful instruction, we must give a big like to Alfawise T1 for the design.
Furthermore, when we open box package, we found 2 user manuals: the user manual and Windows license activation instruction.
We have unboxed and reviewed many TV Boxes and Mini PCs, and most of them come with only a simple user manual. The Windows license activation instruction in Alfawise T1 package make our heart warm and think that this brand think much for the users, although there are some grammatical errors in it.
The user manual is not in an illustrated but an extremely simple style. It is in 7 languages, including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Japanese, which surprises us really.
The spotlights of Alfawise T1 should be mentioned:
● Intel GEMINI LAKE Celeron N4100 CPU with 4 cores 4 threads, 4M L2 cache and 2.4GHz frequency
● Intel HD Graphics 600 GPU, 250MHz to 750MHz
● Support up to 4K x 2K resolution
● 2.4GHz + 5.8GHz WiFi and BT 4.0
● 4G DDR4 RAM + 64G ROM
● Support 512GB M.2 SSD and 2.5 inch 2TB HHD
After connected with HDMI/power cables and WiFi network, the first-time installation and activation of Alfawise T1 Mini PC feature Windows 10 Cortana AI assistance in the whole process.
It is worth mentioning that the Authorised WIndows 10 Lincense Key is integrated in the PC’s main board in factory. Once connected with WiFi for the first time, the Windows Key activation of the device will automatically start. No need to input the license key manually.
After the installation and activation, every thing works fine and the Alfawise T1 can be used to play games or office use just like a normal computer.
We have run Youtube and games on this device continuously for nearly 5 hours, but no over-heating happens. The glass or acrylic cover of Alfawise T1 makes heat dissipation easily, along with a smooth feeling of touching. Excellent in heat dissipation!
More information about the Alfawise T1 including tech review and comparison will be updated soon.
