I recently got a Qotom Q350G4Y fanless mini PC. It's a cute little thing:
The vendor is located in China. I've found it difficult to find consistent information online so I figured it would be good to publish information about the one I received. Note that Qotom may substitute a slightly different CPU from one model to the next, so my CPU is a bit different than the CPU that is generally advertised:
|Main board||Qotom||Q4210YG4-P V1.0|
|CPU||Intel||Core i5-4210Y||1.50 GHz|
|Memory||Kimtigo||KT8GS3EDF||8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz|
|Ethernet||Intel||i211 4-port||Gigabit Ethernet|
My goal is to use this to replace my existing router and to learn about Linux and router functionality, including DHCP, DNS, firewalls, Wi-Fi hotspots, and VPN. My plan is to sequentially migrate each service from my current router to the Qotom PC (starting with DHCP) so I can take this is increments. This will be an exciting start to my learning in 2020!
