MINISFORUM JB95 is another model that the Chinese firm has added to its range of mini-PCs. Some tremendously compact desktops that you can place anywhere on the desk or living room, with enough performance for basic computing tasks (at least) and with prices that are usually quite contained.
This is the case of the new model of a company that accumulates new models every month and of very different fur. The MINISFORUM JB95 is intended for the entry-level processor-based range Intel Celeron N5095. A development of the ‘Jasper Lake’ series with which Intel aimed at budget PCs, whether they were small entry-level laptops or netbooks, including mini-PCs like this one in a square format with a size of 12.7 cm and a height of 4.6 cm.
