Fanless – extremely compact – energy efficient

The Orbsmart AW-12L is a Windows 11 Mini PC with extremely compact dimensions (13 x 8.1 x 1.8 cm) and fits practically in your pocket. The case has a high-quality build and the passive and completely fanless cooling allows for absolutely silent operation. The power consumption is only a few watts even under full load.

Intel Inside

The Orbsmart AW-12L uses the powerful Intel chip generation “Gemini Lake Refresh” with the quad-core Intel™ Celeron™ J4125 processor (@2.00 GHz / burst freq: 2.70 GHz) plus 8GB DDR4 RAM RAM and the Intel™ HD Graphics 600 unit. The performance offers more than enough power reserves even for demanding office applications, web browsing or smaller games. You also have 128GB of internal storage. This can be expanded by up to 512GB via a microSD card.

Windows™ 11 PRO

The highlight: a Windows 11 Professional (64-bit) version is already pre-installed as the operating system. All programs or apps supported by Windows 11 such as Microsoft Office, Teams, KODI, VLC, TeamViewer, Skype & Co can be installed without any problems. The AW-12L is also great as a streaming PC.

Extremely versatile

This mini computer is extremely versatile! Thanks to Windows 11, there are almost no limits when it comes to possible uses: ideal as an office PC (Microsoft Office, Zoom, Skype), streaming PC (YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Skygo, DAZN, Disney+ & Co.), media player (KODI Mediacenter, PLEX etc.) or in the professional area for companies in continuous operation (display system/digital signage, thin client, automation, workstation, server).


The Orbsmart Windows Computer supports resolutions up to 2160p (60Hz) thanks to the two integrated HDMI™ 2.0 ports. Enjoy streaming services, videos or pictures in ultra-high definition quality – no need to buy an additional computer.

Dual Display

Despite the extremely compact design, the AW-12L has two full-fledged HDMI ports built into the case (one HDMI cable is included). Up to two monitors can be used simultaneously.

Flexibly expandable

Another highlight on the Orbsmart AW-12L: via the bottom plate, an M.2 NVMe SSD (2280) can be installed. Thus, the storage space can be expanded in a space-saving way without an additional external USB hard drive. The microSD slot supports cards up to 512GB.

High connectivity

This mini-PC box has four full-fledged USB 3.0 ports available. Basically, any mouse/keyboard (e.g. Orbsmart AM-2), airmouse (e.g. Orbsmart WA-1), USB stick/hard drive or DVD/BD drive can be connected without any problems.


The AW-12L also offers high connectivity. The internal WIFI antenna (dual-band 2.4/5 GHz) with AC standard enables a high range and data rate. Alternatively, the Gigabit LAN port provides a stable connection to your router or home network. Additional devices can be connected via Bluetooth 4.2 standard.

Mounting Kit included

Ready to go: the AW-12L offers a wide range of accessories. Besides an HDMI 2.0 cable, EU power supply, thermal pad (for a M.2 SSD) and German/English manual, a mounting kit for a TV/monitor is also included.
