GOLE1 Plus mini PC is very well made. Aluminum housing with golden highlights the quality and value of the product. At the top of the device you will find glossy touchscreen 8 inches, with the logo of Windows. GOLE1 Plus makes a great impression, it’s really high-quality device. As we wrote in the beginning a mini PC is equipped with Intel Atom x5-Z8350 quad-core, up to 1.92GHz. GOLE1 Plus runs on Windows 10 Home 64bit (not activated) just connect the device to the Internet system will be activated. By mounted screen we have access to easily browse all files stored on the mini PC and the ability to take full advantage of the device for work and entertainment. However, if we want to work “seriously” just hook up GOLE1 Plus via HDMI to a larger monitor, and connect the mouse and the keyboard (great!), but more on that in the review.
On the right side of the device you will find: headset port, USB 3.0 port, USB 2.0 port, Power LED, Volume – / + buttons, Power ON / OFF button
On the back we find: DC Input, RJ45 Fast Ethernet port, HDMI 1.4 port, USB 2.0 port, Mirco SD card slot, RESET hole
On the left side: Speaker hole
At the bottom of the device there are rubber pads to prevent shifting, also has holes for the discharge of hot air, and sound coming out. s you can see there are also holes for wall mounting via VESA standard (MIS-D 75x75mm) and sloped position on desktop like as below, screw up both metal poles into mounting hole.
Below is a GOLE1 Plus picture in combination with the Samsung 10.1″ tablet to make it easier to imagine the size of the device.
