Over the years, Geekom has managed to build a name for themselves for creating pretty affordable, compact, mini PCs. The company makes some of the most affordable and value for money mini PCs out there, making them perfect for users who don’t need to do much with their computers, or who want a PC with a tiny footprint, or just want a media streaming device that they can connect to their PCs.
But if you’re looking to save yourself some money, then you’re in luck because right now, Geekom is hosting a sale where they’ll be discounting its MiniAir 11, making it extremely tempting upgrades if you’re looking for a new computer.
We’ve covered the MiniAir 11 mini PC several times in the past, but in case this is your first time hearing about it, the MiniAir 11 is a small form factor PC that only weighs 500 grams. At this weight and size, it’s actually lighter and smaller than some laptops, so if you do need to travel around with a computer, the MiniAir 11 could be an option.
But don’t let its size fool you. Under the hood, the MiniAir 11 is powered by an 11th Gen Intel Celeron-5105 processor. It is a quad-core, quad-thread processor that’s 1.5x faster compared to its predecessor. It also comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD storage, which for the most part is enough to run the majority of day-to-day applications without any issue.
The use of the M.2 2280 PCIe NVMe SSD also means that it can read and write data quickly, so if you’re someone who works with large files and needs to access them constantly, speed won’t be a problem.
That being said, it should be noted that the MiniAir 11 does not come with a discrete GPU. Instead, it will rely on Intel’s UHD graphics, but even then it will be capable of powering up to two 4K displays at once, so if you use a dual display setup, you won’t have to worry about the MiniAir 11 not being powerful enough to support it.
In case the base specs aren’t enough for you, don’t worry because the MiniAir 11 has been designed to be customizable to a certain extent. The back cover of the PC can be removed and unscrewed easily, and users can then add extra storage or RAM (up to 1TB and 32GB respectively) just by slotting and screwing them into place, so even if you’re not particularly tech savvy, the overall process isn’t that intimidating.
During this sale, Geekom will be selling the MiniAIr 11 for just $124, which is more than 50% off its RRP of $279 as long as you use the summer5air code upon checkout. This deal will run from the 10th of July until the 10th of September.
