The Kamrui AK1 Plus is a dirt cheap mini PC with a 15-watt Intel Processor N95 quad-core chip and list prices starting as low as $180 (although the AK1 Plus is currently on sale for as little as $126).
But one thing I hadn’t noticed when including this little computer in Liliputing’s Prime Day mini PC deals roundup is that not only is there room for an M.2 2280 SSD and a 2.5 inch hard drive inside this little computer, but thanks to a detachable base, it should be easy to add a hard drive… or shrink the height of the computer if you’re not planning to add a hard drive.
According to product listings on Amazon, the system supports up to 6TB of total storage, with the M.2 slot accommodating up to a 2TB SSD and the base supporting up to a 4TB hard drive or SSD.
One thing to keep in mind is that while the storage is user-upgradeable, the RAM is not, since it’s soldered to the motherboard. So if you want more than the 8GB of memory that ships on entry-level models, then you might want to spend a little more money to pick up a 16GB model.
The AK1 Plus feature two HDMI ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, and two USB 2.0 Type-A ports plus a 3.5mm audio jack and DC power input. The system also features support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2.
Given the low price tag, it’s hardly surprising that the system isn’t a speed demon. But it should be able to handle basic tasks or work as a media center with support for up to two 4K displays and 1.2 GHz Intel UHD graphics with 16 execution units.
The KAMRUI AK1 Plus ships with Windows 11 Pro pre-installed.
