Awesome little unit- used 16 Gb RAM, WIn10 and Samsung SSD... BLAZING FAST.Only issue is I need to update the monitor, as my older monitor isn't HD- and sometimes resolution bumps up to a resolution not supported-Unit is quiet enough to be used as a Media Center.Highly recommend it!

Editorial Reviews

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this mini computer based on manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this mini computer now is good, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing, or has some defect in the product? Whatever you buy online, this is a likely chance. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). But still, you want to make sure if the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Intel has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

2. This mini computer has positive reviews on the internet

online world

Some people have good experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item, they have to go through the whole process of returning them. The point is, people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, so don't read too much into one good or bad review. With that said, reading multiple reviews can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This mini computer has positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this mini computer more a week later.I summarized what fans and haters say about this product below, so don't forget to read those to paint the whole picture!

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in three parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and some price prediction I made, just in case if you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from March 16, 2020 to May 17, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this mini computer was $585.00, and the lowest price point was $199.99. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I never saw this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 3.02% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be much higher a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Make sure Intel is a brand you can trust

Intel is a fairly popular brand among other mini computer brands. But I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

5. There are other options you might want to check out

'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Gigabyte.If you're looking for a mini computer with best reviews, a product from Lenovo gets the best score on the internet.If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from the same brand as this product I linked below is a better option.I linked all the similar products down below so please check them out!
