There’s no shortage of cheap mini-desktop computers with Intel Atom x5 processors from Chinese device makers. There aren’t as many that feature the more powerful Intel Atom x7-Z8700 processor… but now there’s one more than there used to be.
Beelink has launched a mini PC called the Beelink BT7. It features one of the most powerful Atom chips to date (for what that’s worth, when talking about low-power chips), 4GB of RAM, and storage options ranging from 64GB to 320GB.
The Beelink BT7 is produced in China, but you can have it shipped internationally if you order from AliExpress, Gearbest, or other online stores. Prices run between about $170 and $250, depending on the configuration.
Each model measures about 4.7″ x 4.7″ 0.9″ and features an aluminum case. The only real difference between the models is the storage: Beelink offers versions with 64GB, 128GB, and 320GB of solid state storage.
Other specs include 4GB of DDR3-1600 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, three USB 3.0 ports, a 3.5mm headset jack and an HDMI port.
The computer ships with Windows 10 Home.
