BMAX may not be a household name, but with a product like the B1 mini PC (which can function as a thin client), it may well be soon.
Unlike other computers under $ 100, the B1 is based on the Intel Celeron N3060 CPU, which is a bit more powerful than the Atom x5-Z8350 usually found in these devices.
This could make this mini PC the perfect match for anyone looking for an affordable yet fairly competitive business computer.
The B1 also includes 4GB of memory and 64GB of eMMC storage; Unique among PCs under $ 100 is the fact that you can also add a second SSD thanks to an additional M.2 slot.
Given how cheap SSDs are at the moment (even the 2TB models), this might be an easy route to connect an upgraded storage server, just remember that it only supports SATA.
The rest of the setup is pretty standard for an entry-level PC. It features 802.11ac Wi-Fi, four USB ports, VGA port (a rarity at this price), HDMI connector, microSD card slot, Gigabit Ethernet (even rarer), and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Since it has a VESA mount, you will also be able to drop it off the back of a monitor without too much trouble.
As a disclaimer, don’t expect the B1 to be in any way powerful enough to play recently released games or perform intensive computing tasks, but it will be great for office work and other light tasks.
If this product comes from mainland China, it will take at least a month to reach the UK or US (and possibly longer). You may be charged a tax directly or through the courier.
