If you are looking for a powerful mini-PC with a sophisticated aesthetic, then perhaps the Chuwi RZBOX Mini-PC may fit the bill. Most importantly, though, it will not break the bank.
For US$649, you’d be scoring the Chuwi RZBOX Mini-PC powered by the AMD Ryzen 9 4900H with AMD Radeon Vega 8 graphics. The 8-core, 16-thread processor offers a clock speed of up 4.4 GHz and it is further bolstered by 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and 512 GB SSD.
The rig further allows for storage expansion (M.2) of up to 5 TB (not included) for requires more storage.
Other spec-sheet details include built-in dual-band, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and a generous serving of I/Os including 2x USB 3.0 (Type A interface, rear), 1x USB 2.0 (Type-C interface, front), 3x USB 2.0 (Type A interface, rear), an HDMI 2.0 port (rear), a DisplayPort (rear), a VGA port (rear, and yes, it still has that!), a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a microphone jack (front. Not a combo jack, btw; it is two separate jacks), and not one but two RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Chuwi is crowdfunding the Chuwi RZBOX on its website, store.chuwi.com, with a goal of US$20,000. The campaign kicked two days ago, but already it has blown past 600 backers contributing more than US$340,000 in funding (or more correctly, orders).
If you are in the market for a small footprint PC, be sure to check out the Chuwi RZBOX Mini-PC. Oh, you can also pick up the mini-PC without RAM and SSD for just US$499.
