Beelink has now started selling the SEi12 Pro mini-PC series directly. Also available through Amazon, the SEi12 Pro features the Core i5-1240P or Core i7-1260P, plus up to 32 GB of DDR5 RAM, PCIe 4.0 storage and plenty of ports.
Beelink is now selling the SEi12 Pro, a mini-PC that the company presented in November. For some reason, Beelink does not carry barebones units itself, with MINIXPC doing so instead. As its name suggests, the SEi12 Pro utilises 12th Gen Intel Core processors, with the company offering the Core i5-1240P or Core i7-1260P to choose from at this stage.
For reference, both are 28 W processors with 4 P cores, 8 E cores and 16 threads. The Core i7-1260P has 6 MB more L3 cache though, as well as higher CPU boost clock speeds and a more powerful iGPU. Unsurprisingly, the Core i7-1260P outpaces the Core i5-1240P by approximately 10% in our tests. All SEi12 Pro configurations also contain the following ports within their 126 x 113 x 42 mm chassis:
- 1x 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet
- 1x 3.5 mm jack
- 2x HDMI
- 1x Thunderbolt 4
- 4x USB 3.0 Type-A
Moreover, Beelink includes twin SO-DIMM slots for DDR5-4800 RAM, a PCIe 4.0 slot and two fans to keep the machine’s 28 W processors in check. Currently, Beelink charges US$599 for the SEi12 Pro with a Core i5-1240P processor, 16 GB of RAM and a 500 GB SSD. Alternatively, the company sells the same configuration through Amazon US for US$609. Additionally, there is a Core i7-1260P version with 32 GB of RAM and 500 GB of storage for US$799, regardless of from where you order it. Please see Beelink’s website for more details.
