Beelink SER4-Ryzen 7 4800U-equipped high-performance mini PC
Beelink has released a mini PC, “SER4”. Some people may not know the maker of Beelink. Still, xiaomitoday also reviewed the actual mini PC several years ago, and it is a maker that “knows” more than the recently introduced NVISEN. As a Chinese manufacturer, I use housing with a slightly fashionable design, and I like it.
The “SER4” introduced this time is a high-spec mini PC equipped with Ryzen 7 4800U as the CPU, and I felt that the housing structure was also solid.

* The configuration other than RAM is the same.
The OS is Windows 11, but like other Chinese manufacturers’ products, it is not disclosed whether it is the Home version or the Pro version. Don’t Chinese people care about the Home version or the Pro version? The CPU is Ryzen 7 4800U, which is the old generation, but the benchmark score published by Passmark is 17,073, and it still has the ability of “high-end class for mobile”. However, this product does not have an external GPU.
You can choose 16GB / 32GB of RAM, and since there are 2 slots, you can install up to 64GB by DIY. The storage is a 500GB M.2 NVMe SSD, and the RAM and SSD brand name is also disclosed as “Kingston” (Chinese mini PCs that disclose the internal parts brand name are rare). In addition, there is a 2.5-inch HDD slot inside the chassis, and it can be expanded (I think that this slot is compatible with HDD / SSD, but there are cases where some products support only HDD and not SSD. Therefore, in this article, it is referred to as “HDD slot”).
Wi-Fi 6 is supported around communication, and the input/output port is about “standard” for a mini PC. I always think,, “I want a little more USB port, ” but this may be unavoidable since the housing size is very small.
It can be said that the size is also standard for a mini PC. The weight was stated as “0.3 kg” on the Banggood product page, but I think it is a little heavier since it is equipped with a cooling fan in a metal housing.
2. Beelink SER4 chassis
The housing is made of metal (I don’t know the exact material name, but it is probably made of aluminum alloy), has a glossy finish, and uses a red accent color, so I think it has a high design.

The inside of the case looks like this. It has a good cooling fan and heat pipes, 2 slots for RAM, 1 slot for SSD, and a 2.5-inch slot for expansion on the bottom. I think that the expandability of RAM and storage by DIY is important for mini PCs. It’s okay to buy it, but it’s a little disappointing if the RAM is onboard. Therefore, you can rest assured that the internal structure is known in advance.
Arrangement of side and input/output ports. The ports are concentrated on the “front (top)” and “back (bottom)”. The USB Type-C port also supports video output, and when combined with two HDMI ports, it can be manufactured and output on up to three screens.

I don’t know in that detail, but there was also data on CPU temperature and fan noise. The CPU temperature is 61-68 ° C when playing GTA5 (a game called Grand Theft Auto 5) and 60-65 ° C when using Photoshop. Also, if the noise level is 53.7db and this is the maximum noise, in my experience,, it is about “not so quiet, but well forgiving”. However, it may be said that it is sincere as disclosed.
3. Beelink SER4 price etc.
Beelink SER4 is available on the Beelink official website and Banggood. As of February 19, the price at Banggood is low; RAM 16GB version is $ 699.99 (82,200 yen), RAM 32GB version is $ 749.99 (88,072 yen), slightly compared to products such as Chinese manufacturers GMK and T-bao It’s expensive, it’s about a good match with MINISFORUM.
