Overall, we liked the Beebox-S a lot and have no doubt it is, pound for pound, one of the best mini PCs on the market right now. The 6200U is a superb option at $320, though we strongly encourage readers to check out the similar Beebox-S 6100U currently selling for just $264. The only difference between the two is the processor inside, and frankly, it’s not a big difference.

ASRock's Beebox-S is a very tiny mini PC designed with high performance desktop grade features that won't disappoint.

Coming to the business end of the review, it is clear that ASRock can do plenty to improve the current hardware design. These improvements can make the unit operate in a more reliable manner in the long run, while also providing a good user experience during the setup process. However, that doesn't take away the fact that the ASRock Beebox-S provides a good-enough experience at a lower price point compared to the NUC6i5SYK. It is always good to have multiple options in the market for a Skylake-U mini-PC, and ASRock has targeted the price-conscious buyer with a good balance of features / performance and cost.
