If I had to build a new PC from scratch, I would go with a small form factor case instead of a medium or large tower case. This is because there are many reasons to dig SFF cases. For one, they’re quite cute to look at, and second, they take up a lot less space compared to medium or large cases, and third, they make for great media entertainment units.
Now, when it comes to mini PCs, GEEKOM is a brand that actually specializes in them, and if you wanted something similar to Apple’s Mac mini in design but ran on Windows instead, GEEKOM’s mini PCs are a great and much more affordable alternative.
The best part is that right now, the company is running a promotion for the GEEKOM Mini IT11 PC where you can get as much as $90 off its asking price, bringing it down to even more affordable levels than ever and making some of the cheapest PCs you can buy at the moment.
GEEKOM Mini IT11
The deal for the GEEKOM Mini IT11 will cover two of its configurations. The cheaper model will be powered by an Intel Core i6-1155G7 chipset and will come with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, while the second configuration will be powered by an Intel Core i7-1195G7 processor and will also come with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage.
This means that your choices are simple – either go with the more powerful i7 for more resource-intensive tasks, or go with the cheaper i5 if you just need a simple PC to do work on and stream videos. Apart from the difference in the processor, both configurations will be more or less identical.
Users will be able to look forward to Intel’s Iris XE integrated graphics that will be capable of supporting external displays of up to 8K in resolution. There will also be support for dual band 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi 6 connectivity, along with Bluetooth 5.2 so you can connect wireless peripherals like keyboards, mice, and headphones to it.
The Mini IT11 is also an incredibly tiny PC and lives up to its mini name. It measures 4.6 x 4.4 x 1.8-inches, but don’t let its size fool you as it will also support a host of connections including HDMI 2.0, a mini DisplayPort, USB 4.0 ports, USB 3.2 ports, an SD card reader, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a 1,000Mbs LAN port. There is also a built-in fan to help keep everything running nice and cool.
If you’re interested in picking up either configuration, the GEEKOM Mini IT11 with the i7 configuration will be priced at $509.99, a $90 discount off its original price, while the i5 model will be priced at $429.99, a $70 discount off the original price. These deals will run from the 30th of January, 2023 until the 5th of February, 2023.
