Meet the Geekom MiniAir 11 
A super compact 17x11x3.4 cm Formfactor MiniPC for just 239 USD

There is small, smaller, and even skinny. Geekom has released the new MiniAir 11. A low-power PC that is so compact that you can install it beneath your monitor or even fit it in the palm of your hands. A PC featuring Gigabit Ethernet connectors, AC 7265 WIFI, Bluetooth USB3, HDMI, DisplayPort, an NVMe SSD, and 8GB DRAM are all upgradeable, of course. While the features aren't something too thrilling, the biggest shocker is the price as you can purchase this ready-to-go PC with Windows 11 Pro preinstalled at a price of just 239 USD.

The end-users are interested in a product like this need to be found in the SOHO, Net PC, or HTPC space. The MiniAir 11, with its petite size, will fit anywhere, and pre-installed with Windows 11 Pro, is it fast enough for normal web browsing and office applications like Word and Excell. Still, sure, even some simplistic work with Photoshop is not a slight problem. Weight? Get this (~500g). The MiniAir 11 does not have the fastest processor compared to desktop standards, but it does offer plenty of performance for everyday PC usage. It houses a quad-core Celeron N5095 that can bin towards a single core at 2.9 GHz. That also means this is a very energy-friendly platform, think 15 Watts. Next, to that, you can easily hide this unit behind your monitor or HDTV. With that in mind, this easily can be a product that accelerates and post processes high definition movies and music; preferably, the content is streamed over a network. And that's where we land at net-tops and mini-tops. Personally, when on the road, I do not really like to work on a laptop; taking this along and hooking it up over HDMO to a TV in the hotel room works well; just add a keyboard and mouse, and you're good to go.  We can think of plenty of usage scenarios for sure. Anyway, let's have a peek at what we review today:
