The ACEPC AK1  has a fast startup and good performance.  It can stream 4k videos online with no problem.  It is surprisingly powerful and could handle what most mid-range laptops can.

 It only comes with a  64GB hard drive which would be the bare minimum that I would go with, but if you don't plan on storing a lot of pictures, videos, etc on your PC, then it should plenty.


 The ACEPC AK1 is budget-friendly so If you need a computer for emailing, web surfing, document processing, or 4k streaming this could be the computer for you, however for high-end processing tasks like video editing and gaming you might want to go with something else.

Since Mini Computers can be used for so many different things, they come in a variety of options. There is a lot to consider when choosing a Mini PC, the Processor,  Ram, and Storage needs are a few. If you plan on using it as your primary PC,  I’d recommend sticking to an i3-, i5- or i7-based model (lower cost units use Intel’s older Pentium or Celeron processors). If you plan on doing more processor intensive tasks, such as video editing or even gaming, going with an i7-based model would be optimal. If you will primarily use it to browse the web an i3- or i5-based unit will work just fine.

Generally Speaking the more Ram you have the faster your PC will run, depending on what program you are using. If you do a lot of multi-tasking, I would recommend at least 8GBs of Ram. Many Mini Computers go up to 32GBs of Ram, I would expect better performance the higher you go. Lastly, depending on your needs you will need to choose between a  Hard Disk Drive and a Solid State Drive ( some come equipped with both). An HDD usually carries more space and is generally less expensive. With an SSD you will have a much faster boot up time and better all around performance but likely less storage space.  

Recommendations On Choosing A Mini PC

Benefits of owning a Mini PC

If you're in the market for a desktop computer, you may want to consider a Mini Desktop Computer or Mini PC. Mini PC's consume low power compared to a full-size desktop and take up much less space. 


They are small enough, that you can attach them to the back of a monitor or television, this can be a big advantage for those with limited space. Their small size also makes them portable, measuring roughly 4 inches and weighing around 2 pounds.


Mini Desktop PCs are generally quieter than large Desktops and are less prone to error due to dirt and dust. Some Desktop Mini PCs are made fanless, which makes them truly silent.


Some Mini Computers are capable of being used as a home theater with 4k output, you can even attach the unit to the back of your tv and use it as a huge computer, or stream 4k video.
