What mini desktop?


New Member
Hi there

Firstly, forgive my stupid questions but I work in software and not IT so am a bit naive/stupid (delete where necessary) when it comes to buying a pc.

I work from home and I would like a mini pc to do my work on. My work is mainly cloud but will need to install Office 365 apps.

I have two monitors, so ideally would like to use the two monitors with the pc, so need the relevant ports for this, together with the usual headphone jack, USB's etc.

I thought I would look myself, but am a little confused about what to buy, so thought I would ask people more experienced than myself.

Finally, I don't want to spend a king's ransom, so something <£350 if possible.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Pretty much 'any' NUC can meet those requirements, although at that price point you'd probably be checking out the second hand market. New ones can spike up closer to $1000 depending on the hardware you want inside, although new at that your targeted price range is like a celeron/i3.

There's some other comparable products like Gigabyte released a 'Brix' line that's similar, plenty of options to shop around for.

What kind of software work do you do?
