How to Choose the Best Mini PC For You
With the advancement of technology, mini PCs have grown in capabilities. To meet the needs of different groups of users, GEEKOM has released a wide range of mini PCs. With so many options available, deciding which is best mini PC for you may be challenging. Don't worry. Here's a guide to help.
You'll see a variety of CPUs in the small PCs out there, ranging from Intel Celeron and Core i3 (very basic) up to Core i5 and i7 (and in a few cases, i9) processors. If you're only using the mini PC for light office and calculation-based tasks, a Core i3 or Celeron should be adequate. But power users seeking a gaming rig, video editing machine, or a mini PC to use as a media server will want a beefier CPU.
Although most mini PCs are capable of basic tasks, you may find that they are not powerful enough to run your most demanding applications. This is why you should choose a model with enough RAM for the tasks you need it to complete. Typically, a great mini PC should have at least 8GB of RAM. Of course, you can always upgrade these parts later if you so desire.
When buying a mini PC, you need to consider the type of storage available. Generally, an SSD is more reliable and offers higher speed but HDDs still have more space than SSDs. So, if you are more concerned about storage capacity, go with an HDD, if speed is what matters most to you, go with the SSD.
Mini PCs are designed with different types of ports and connections for different purposes. The number of ports varies by computer model, but a good mini PC should have at least two ports for connecting to monitors—any combination of HDMI, DisplayPort, and USB-C is workable for most people.
Whether it's a desktop or a portable unit, the price is an important factor in your decision. However, you should also consider the quality and value of the computer, as well as the features it has. Sometimes, paying a little more for the best mini PC can be worth it.
