Conclusions

The ASRock Beebox is an amazing product for several different applications. It is good for office use, because of its low price, low-power consumption, and small footprint. It can be also used at home, for text editing, internet browsing, and social media usage, or even at security (as a video recorder/server if you install a USB video capture device). It is also great as a web media player, since the manufacturer claims it can play 4K movies.

The type C USB 3.0 port is a highlight of the product, even if it should take a while to this connector to become more popular.
