Chinese manufacturer GMK launched its NucBox mini PC back in September and it remains one of the smallest mini PCs in the market capable of 4K UHD video playback. Only the 128 GB SSD version was available at the time of launch, but users can now purchase the 512 GB version for about $80 USD more.
Aside from its aforementioned diminutive dimensions, the system comes with 8 GB of soldered RAM, Windows 10 Home, and an actively-cooled Celeron J4125 CPU. The specifications aren't half bad when you consider that the entire PC is the size of a baseball.
It's worth noting that we encountered WLAN and Bluetooth connectivity issues during our time with a pre-production unit, but the manufacturer has told us that those problems had already been resolved on consumer-ready units. The fan would also pulsate frequently and loudly even when simply idling on desktop which the manufacturer also claims should not occur on consumer-ready units. We can't confirm these fixes ourselves at the moment and so new owners should double-check their wireless, Bluetooth, and fan behavior just to be sure.
If 512 GB is too large and 128 GB is too small, then GMK is also selling a 256 GB version directly via its official web store here.
