ASUS Mini PC PN62 Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅01-07-20

Throughout our time with the ASUS Mini PC PN62, we can attest to this unit being a nifty piece of kit that will suit a basic home/office PC.

Throughout our testing we benchmarked the NUC against previously tested Intel’s NUC 8 Mainstream G which has a slightly different/higher specification, and this does come across in some of the benchmarks. The Radeon 540X with its 2GB GDDR5 seems to be a stronger component when compared again the Intel HD Graphics 630 via our Intel 10th Gen CPU. Overall performance is good, though if 3D performance is important, you will need to be discerning with your title selection. More demanding games will struggle to gain acceptable framerates, however titles like DOTA 2 and Minecraft perform admirably.

The main benefit of PN62 is it’s minicule size. This makes the unit highly portable and it will be inconsupicuious – you may even decide to use the included VESA mount and install the unit behind a monitor, which completely frees up space. Even though we are dealing with a small footprint, the PN62 is still able to supply a great variety of ports, including USB 3.2 Gen 2.

We really like that it is easy to gain access inside this Mini PC, and once inside, installing the necessary memory and storage is completely hassle-free. There are no cables to attach, and the process is without any hurdles. It should be noted that PN62 will arrive as a barebones unit, therefore memory and storage will need to be supplied separately (our sample was a review unit and arrives with these components installed).

ASUS PN62 is priced from $550 USD | £567 GBP | $680 AUD. The price will vary depending on the specific unit you opt for – there are four different models – ranging from the Intel® Core™ i3-10110U to the Intel® Core™ i7-10710U. Do bear in mind that this is a barebones mini PC, so memory and storage needs to be purchased and installed. However a Windows 10 license is supplied and we do get a healthy 2 years warranty to seal the deal.

The ASUS Mini PC PN62 is a dainty computer system which hosts an impressive bundle of included features. Installing your own hardware inside is hassle-free and we can definitely recommend this ultra-compact system!
