The GMK NucBox 7S is another N5105 Mini PC from the GMKtec brand. It looks identical to the NucBox 7 Mini PC that came out in late October 2022. However, the Intel Pentium Silver N6005 processor has been replaced by the well-known and still popular (and quite old, launch date Q1’21) Jasper Lake N5105 chip. Unfortunately, NucBox 7S only supports WiFi 5, unlike GMK NucBox 7 which supports WiFi 6. It’s a pity because GMKtec in its portfolio has a refreshed version of NucBox 5 Pro N5105 Mini PC offering WiFi 6. However, the price of the NucBox 7S deserves attention. The Mini PC is available for $195 and up.

By the way, GMKtec ships the device also in a configuration of 8GB RAM (onboard) and 512GB SSD for $214.99. Besides, you can also find the Mini PC on Amazon.
