This system features nothing less than 8GB of DDR4 RAM in SODIMM format. The big drawback is that, apparently, it only has space for one RAM module and supports a maximum of 16 GB. On the other hand, it has a capacity of 256 GB of storage in an M.2 SATA SSD that we can change for one with a higher capacity. It also has space for a 2.5-inch storage drive.
Regarding connectivity, it has two ports on the front usb3.0 and a headphone jack. On the back it has two USB 3.0 ports, a port ethernet and two ports HDMI. Not much, true, but more than enough for a retro system. It also has connectivity WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.0.
A versatile option that will offer us quite good performance, especially for multimedia and console emulators.
