[WISH] Intel fanless box

#1
What would make a happy 2020 to me:
a fanless Intel device dedicated to multimedia purposes.

Example:
CPU: I3 7100U would be perfect (has HD620 GPU that supports HDR)
RAM: 8gb (4+4 dual channel) upgradable
OS: Win 10 PRO
CHASSIS: FANLESS, aluminium made
WIFI: external removable antenna
STORAGE: 64GB eMMC + SSD slot.

Something like this but with more elegant chassis:

That kind on configuration is quite common nowadays to find... and quite less expensive than the NEO J50C-4,
and hope Minix will release something like this in the future (fanless chassis is essential to me and probably for most of people who buys these devices as multimedia player)

Make you happy, me ☺ and others.
I also like fanless chassis ☺.(also essential to me)

Let's wait and see.

I would like a device similar to G41V-4 ( i really like this device ☺)

but more powerful (CPU and GPU) and more upgradable (upgrade the RAM for example and a slot for SSD) or if the RAM upgrade is not possible , more fixed RAM (example 8GB).

The external removable antenna for me is not so important because i use RJ45 always (unless i can't), for me can be without external antenna (like for example G41V-4 ☺)

The problem might be the need of having a fan to cool the device with that Specs.

Aluminium chassis are designed to prevent from overheating so there shouldn't be any cooling issue (see AKASA NEWTON S7, specific for NUC models that have such hw config)
Isn't so common to have a ethernet port near the tv, external wifi antenna is preferrable to avoid interferences with internal antenna and aluminium case. I'd never exchange a silent system just for a smaller chassis, so can't understand why Minix is stuck with current form factor.
Let's wait and see, but I'm not much confident Minix will ever release a product like that.
