Aero 2 Pro Windows 11 Mini PC Review
Introducing a brand-new mini-PC call the AEROFARA Aero 2 Pro, and this is a compact Windows 11 many PC that has some surprising features for its small form factor. What surprised me in this model, is that firstly it has an internal cooling fan. It has 4K HDR display, it has Dolby Atmos, DTS X, DTS HD-MA, Dolby surround, and Dolby TrueHD surround sound audio formats. It can play 4K HDR videos very well without the assistance of the VLC player.
This mini-PC is fast with its Intel Celeron N5105 quad core CPU, with a base clock speed of 2.0 GHz and a boost clock speed of 2.9 GHz. It has dual band Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet LAN, and Bluetooth support.
I was also surprised that its GPU could handle a very large Windows game called Destiny 2 on low and medium graphics settings. It has good performance benchmarks and and placed higher than most on my rankings chart on mini-PCs.

I have reviewed many mini-PCs in the past running on Intel Celeron CPUs, and most of them fell in to the budget category with low to medium performance. However, the performance of the Aero 2 Pro is more than what I expected, and it performance surpasses that of most mini-PCs in this class.
In fact I was most satisfied with the speed of the processor and the performance of its GPU despite not having the full power to run games on the highest settings. It was able to run games on low settings.
The only issue I had is that its bios blocks you from installing grub during the process of installing alternative operating systems such as Android x86 and FydeOS. Other than that, this is a great many PC that can be upgraded to Windows 11, can run all office applications, and deliverables upgrade all round experience. I highly recommend it as a great many PC to purchase.
