How do you take a good TV box and make it better? Make it smaller, of course.
The Beelink MiniMXIII takes the popular MXIII and updates it with the AmLogic S905 CPU. But the biggest difference is actually the device’s small size.
There aren’t very many manufacturers that opt for a small size over trying to pack in anything and everything into their TV boxes. The down side to all of that extra stuff, other than the increased size, is all of the heat that those components put out.
This is one case where smaller is better. Measuring in at only 96mm square, the Mini-MXIII still packs a punch.
In addition to the Amlogic S905, the Mini-MXIII runs Android 5.1, and has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of flash storage. For networking, there’s 802.11 b/g/n wireless and Gigabit Ethernet.
