Forget laptops. If you're mostly working from home, a mini PC makes more sense. Just plug in (or wirelessly connect) your favorite monitor, mouse and keyboard and get to work. No more hulking towers or desktops like in the old days; these things are super-compact, yet they're still stocked with all the ports and expansion options you need. There's one in particular I really like, and it's on sale for the lowest price to date: The Geekom Mini IT11 Core i7 is down to $600. Regular price: $780. It's the biggest discount on record for this configuration.
This thing is loaded for bear (by which I mean you can throw the most demanding apps, spreadsheets and so on at it and it won't break a sweat). Inside this glossy little square, an 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processor pairs with 32GB of RAM and a 1-terabyte solid-state drive — powerhouse specs all around.
The system comes with Windows 11 Pro preloaded and ports aplenty: HDMI, USB (five total), Ethernet and even a Mini Display Port. There's an SD card reader and a headphone jack as well.
I wrote a full review of the Geekom Mini IT11 earlier this year. Although that configuration had a bit less horsepower, for the most part it's the exact same machine, so I encourage you to read that if you want to learn more.
Bottom line: This is powerful but compact desktop PC that's perfect for those who don't need a laptop. And when you think about how often you actually work somewhere other than your desk, that might just be you!
