Logic Supply ML210G-10
ML210G-10 Fanless Thin mini-ITX Computer
As Tested

Improvements in both energy efficiency and computing power continue driving PCs both smaller and quieter. The trend is omnipresent, and clearly impacts the industrial and commercial markets as well as the more visible consumer segments. Logic Supply has been a player in the industrial and commercial sector for many years, with a heavy emphasis on small, fanless, silent PCs.

The last Logic Supply mini PCs to grace SPCR was the ML400G-50 in late November last year. This was a fanlessly cooled mini-ITX system sporting an Intel Core i5-4200M (Haswell) 2.5 GHz mobile processor in a virtually sealed aluminum heatsink chassis.

The model examined here is the ML210G-10, which employs a Bay Trail Celeron embedded processor in a Thin Mini-ITX format to shrink the case even further. The photos below show the lower profile of the new system against the earlier ML400G-50.

...compared to the 2.24" ML400 G-50.

Aside from a smaller case, the ML210G-10 also features even lower power consumption, thanks to the Bay Trail processor, even with four cores, double that of the ML400G-50. The same cheerful and distinctive orange-silver colour scheme is followed here.

The maximum T-junction temperature of the Celeron J1900 processor is a sizzling 105°C, which partly explains Logic Supply's confidence in the ability of this passively cooled system to function safely in up to 55°C ambient temperature.

The ML210 series is available in two models. The ML210G-10 is the embedded Bay Trail option. The ML210G-50 is a higher performance option in the same case utilizing an Intel i5-4300U ULV (ultra low voltage) Haswell mobile processor on a Thin Mini-ITX board.

The system came safely double-boxed in a plain cardboard carton. A power adapter with cables, dual antenna, VESA mounting hardware, and stick-on rubber feet were included.
