GEEKOM has launched what it appears confident will become a user's next "everyday mini PC". Its compact chassis has dual USB type-C ports, dual monitor support and is VESA-mountable. The MiniAir 11 also has an introductory ~US$39 discount off its normal starting price at the moment.

GEEKOM is an OEM in the process of setting itself up as a rival to others such as MINISFORUM and Chuwi, most recently with devices such as its Mini IT11. The PC has SKUs with either the Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7 processors and, thus, dual type-C ports with the USB4 standard - as well as a "CIR" port that responds to a remote control for home-theater or media center use-cases.

This might be part of the reason the IT11 starts at US$529. However, for those who want to spend less - and ideally on an even less bulky new mini-PC - GEEKOM's latest machine is the MiniAir 11. The OEM asserts it has the same "quiet and efficient" fan design, as well as a VESA mount in the box.

Like the IT11, the mini-PC also runs the Pro rather than Home version of Windows 11 - and can also run Linux, macOS, x86 Android, Ubuntu, or FydeOS instead, apparently.

It does so using just 1 Celeron N5095 CPU option, paired with the PC's only available 8GB RAM/256GB SSD option - although GEEKOM notes expansion to 32GB and 1TB respectively is possible. The MiniAir 11 still has 2 type-Cs, one on the front and one on the rear, although there is no power available through either in this case.

Accordingly, GEEKOM indicates that, should a user want to run 2 monitors on the new mini-PC at once, they should use the new 11's mini-DisplayPort and HDMI at the same time. There is also SD card and Ethernet support included here.

The GEEKOM MiniAir 11 has been set at an RRP of US$279 via its own sales page; however, it is listed at a lower price that will apparently never be found again of $199 to mark its launch.
