The Chatreey TK11 is presented as one of the most interesting mini PCs that we have had the opportunity to see recently, thanks to its compact design, its successful hardware configuration, the integration of a fingerprint reader on the power button and in the presence of a speaker at the bottom.
This curious configuration implies that the Chatreey TK11 offers a biometric security layer, something very useful in professional environments, and that we do not need to connect it to external speakers to have sound. For basic use, the quality of your speaker should be more than sufficient, at least in theory, as we haven’t had a chance to test it.
At the hardware level, the Chatreey TK11 uses processors Intel Tiger Lake (Gen11). The base version includes a Core i5-1135G7, a quad-core, eight-thread chip that has a high IPC, and is capable of offering a good level of performance while maintaining low consumption. The RAM memory configuration is 8 GB in its base version, but we can buy it with up to 32 GB of RAM pre-installed. The storage unit also starts at 256 GB, but can go up to 1 TB. This is a PCIE NVMe type.
If we need to mount a 2.5-inch drive We will not have a problem, since the Chatreey TK11 has enough space to mount an HDD, or SSD, of this type, based on the SATA interface. Going back to RAM, the Chatreey TK11 can be expanded to 64 GB of memory, and it has an integrated Intel Xe Gen12 GPU, which means that it is capable of offering good performance in multimedia, and in not too intensive graphics applications.
When it comes to wireless connectivity, the Chatreey TK11 features Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5, and in terms of wired connectivity it has a Thunderbolt 4 connector,, four USB Type-A 3.0 connectors, a 3.5 mm audio jack, a Gigabit Ethernet connector, a DisplayPort and an HDMI 2.0. It comes with Windows 10 as the operating system, upgradeable to Windows 11, and is priced, in its barebone version (without RAM or storage) of 454 euros.
