With new Intel Jasper Lake mini PCs just starting to coming down the pike, and Intel phasing out some of their Gemini lake processors, we may expect some discounts on selected Gemini Lake mini PCs.
Today, I’ve been tipped about two mini PCs with 8GB RAM, and 128 or 256GB storage that sells for under $200, namely:
- GK3V mini PC with an Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core processor, support for a 2.5-inch SATA drive, two HDMI ports, a VGA port, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 5, and a few USB 2.0/3.0 ports. Sold for $175.36 with 128GB storage, and $194.98 with 256GB storage with the prices including shipping.
- CHUWI Herobox mini PC with an Intel Celeron N4100 quad-core Gemini Lake processor, a 256GB SSD, one HDMI port, one VGA port, Gigabit Ethernet, WiFi 5, and five USB ports. The company sells it for $189.99 shipped, but you can get a $5 discount with a coupon (AUGSALE5), and even more interesting coupons to France, Spain, Russia, and Brazil as you can see in the illustration below.
Somehow, the company promises duty-free shipping to Europe from China. I’m not sure how it is possible with a $180+ product…
I could not find a review for GK3 mini PC, but it’s clearly the same as ACEPC AK3 reviewed by TechTablets last year, while there are several reviews of CHUWI Herobox on the net.
If you’d like to find out how other Celeron J4125 and Celeron N4100 mini PCs perform in Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04/20.04, I invite you to read our reviews of Beelink GKmini (J4125 with 8GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) and MINIX NEO G41V-4 (N4100 with 4GB RAM, 64GB flash, 240GB SSD).
Thanks to Theguyuk for the tip.
