the Thinner M6 is a computer with an Intel Celeron N5105 quad-core processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and support for up to two SSDs, and supporting Windows 11, Ubuntu or other Linux-based operating systems.
It’s also pocket-sized, measuring 155 x 80 x 19 mm (6.1″ x 3.1″ x 0.75″) and weighing 195 grams (6.9 ounces), making this mini PC a roughly the size of a modern smartphone (or more like two stacked on top of one another as it’s a bit thick). First announced in October, the Morefine M6 is now available for pre-order for $256+ thanks to an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
That’s a 30% discount off the estimated retail price, meaning you’ll likely end up spending closer to $355 if you want to buy one after the crowdfunding campaign ends.
If all goes according to plan, the Morefine M6 should start shipping in April, but it’s worth bearing in mind that things don’t always go to plan with crowdfunding campaigns, especially during a global pandemic that has led to supply chain issues. But Morefine is an established company that has been around for a while and has released several mini PCs over the years. The company seems to use crowdfunding more as a promotional tool than a fundraising tool.
At the heart of the company’s latest mini PC is Intel’s Celeron N5105 chip, which is a 10-watt, 4-core, 4-thread processor with base and burst speeds of 2GHz and 2.9GHz, respectively, as well as Intel UHD graphics with 24 executions. units and base/burst speeds of 450 MHz and 800 MHz.
Under the hood, the tiny computer includes LPDDR4 memory, M.2 2280 and M.2 2242 slots that can be used for NVMe and SATA storage respectively, and an Intel AX201 wireless card supporting WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.

- 1 x USB Type-C (full function)
- 1 x USB Type-C (power input)
- 3x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A
- 1 x 3.5mm audio
- 1 x 2.5 Gbps Ethernet
Morefine notes that the computer can drive up to two 4K/60Hz displays when using both HDMI and USB-C ports at the same time, thanks to the USB DisplayPort Alt Mode feature. And because the other USB-C port used for power works with any power supply that supports 12V/2A output, you can not only plug the computer into a wall charger, but you can also power the system from a USB power supply. banks, allowing use on the go.
The tiny computer is an actively cooled device with a small fan inside the case. But Morefine says it’s been optimized to balance noise and performance.
