At the same time, this computer with support for two 4K screens costs $189.99 at Banggood.

It is assumed that the PC flash drive comes with Windows 10 Pro, but at this price, it is most likely only a trial version.
Since it is difficult to pack a processor with a consumption of 6 W into a really small form factor without excessive overheating, the manufacturer had to use a cooler.
The S40 is a full-fledged computer that you can connect directly to the HDMI port of your TV or monitor. In addition to the HDMI 2.0 connector, there is also a Mini DisplayPort port that allows you to connect a second display. According to Minisforum, the small computer can support two 4K displays with a frequency of 60 Hz.
