Most Apollo Lake mini PCs on the market ship with 4GB RAM, but if you find this limiting, Beelink AP34 Ultimate, powered by an Intel Celeron N3450 quad core processor, comes with 8GB DDR3 memory and 64GB eMMC flash.

The device is sold on Amazon US for $249.99, and they now have a promotion in Europe until July 16th, where the mini PC is sold for 239.99 Euros instead of 289.99 Euros on Amazon FR and Amazon DE. But a potentially cheaper way, depending on potential custom duties, is to get it on Aliexpress for around $216.99 shipped. Please note that they are two version of AP34:
- AP34 with a gray case and 4GB RAM
- AP34 Ultimate with a blue case and 8GB RAM
If you check some other Aliexpress sellers, they will sell AP34 with 8GB (title) for just $169, but the description shows everything with 4GB RAM, and the price does not change whether you select the Grey or Blue (Ultimate) version of the device, so it’s likely the price for the original A34 model only. So be careful, and ask the seller first in case of doubt.
