The novelty has dimensions of 169 × 115.5 × 68.5 mm and a volume of only about 1.3 liters. The product is made of aluminum, and the ribbed surface acts as a heat sink for heat dissipation.

The case allows mounting a 4″ × 4″ motherboard from ASUS PN50 or PN51 nettop. In the first case AMD Ryzen 4000 processors are supported, in the second Ryzen 5000 (up to Ryzen 7 5700U). The TDP of the chip used should not exceed 25W.
