MINISFORUM GK41: Mini-PC with a quad-core Intel chipset and 8 GB of RAM is down to US$229.99
MINISFORUM released the GK41 a few months ago, and its new mini-PC is now down to US$229.99 on Amazon with 128 GB of storage. The GK41 is also available on AliExpress and from MINISFORUM directly, albeit for US$249.90 and US$239, respectively. Meanwhile, the 256 GB edition of the GK41 retails for US$269 on both AliExpress and MINISFORUM.
Both models measure 113 x 125 x 30 mm, in which MINISFORUM has packed a Celeron J4125 chipset from Intel's Gemini Lake Refresh family. The quad-core chip has a 10 W TDP, can reach 2.7 GHz and integrates an Intel UHD Graphics 600 GPU. MINISFORUM has equipped the GK41 with LPDDR4 RAM, although only 8 GB is available. There is also an M.2 2280 slot and a microSD card reader for adding removable storage. Sadly, the M.2 2880 slot only supports the slower SATA III standard.
The GK41 supports 4K at 60 Hz via both DisplayPort and HDMI 2.0, while it also has four USB 3.0 Type-A ports. Additionally, the machine supports dual-Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11 ac dual-band Wi-Fi. Moreover, MINISFORUM has included dedicated headphone and microphone jacks. The GK41 comes pre-loaded with Windows 10, but it can also run Linux if that is more your thing.
