What is it? The Minisforum UM700 is a very small computer powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 processor.

What makes it special? The Ryzen 7 CPU is seriously powerful and the whole system is extremely well-balanced. It will also appeal to businesses as it comes with Windows 10 Pro, rather than Windows 10 Home.

Save $85 by using the exclusive code BGDec09 at checkout (for the HK warehouse). The UM700 is an outstanding mini PC that delivers superb value for money thanks to the Ryzen 7 that powers it. This offer ends on January 31, 2021.

What else should we know? The rest of the specs are surprisingly solid. It pairs 8GB of RAM with 256GB onboard storage and there's two Gigabit Ethernet ports, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, support for three 4K monitors and one extra 2.5-inch storage device. 

Any cons? None per se, but be aware that Intel PCs are now far, far more competitive. The Intel Core i3-10100, for example, is faster than the Ryzen 3750H and powers a lot of systems costing less than $400.
