Are you looking to upgrade your current PC (or even laptop) but don't want to have nasty surprises on the electricity bill? Geekom's current Easter sale may have the solution for you! The brand is running a special deal on the compact IT11 mini PC, which not only offers desktop-level performance and expandability but also low-power consumption.

You may have already seen Intel's NUC (Next Unit of Computing) initiative, with cute little PCs, which usually traded expansion options for a compact case. Geekom's offer has a similar overall volume, without skimping on upgrade possibilities. And this Easter deal on Amazon makes it even sweeter, see more details below.

Weighting only 20.2 ounces (565 grams) and measuring 4.41 x 4.61 x 1.80 inches (112 x 117 x 45.6 mm), the IT11 is not only very compact, it can be placed in virtually any place you need some serious computing power. The inclusion of the VESA mount in the box opens up the possibility to hide the PC behind a VESA-compatible monitor.

Other possibilities include using it as a media player/gaming box on your big living room TV, a secondary PC in another room, a compact and quiet home server, or even a portable workstation between home and office that fits in a city bag.

You can check more details on the specifications in the table below, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support:

The IT11 can be suited to your needs not only with the memory options on offer but also if you need to later expand the computer. The Geekom mini PC includes dual memory slots for dual-channel operation for up to 64 GB of DDR4 RAM (especially interesting with the current low prices), one M.2 slot for a SATA or PCI-Express SSD, and another 2.5-inch slot for a traditional SATA hard drive (HDD) or SSD.

Compared to 8th-generation mini PCs, the IT11 brings a faster processor, the Core i7-11390H from Intel's Tiger Lake family, with four cores (8 threads) at up to 5 GHz and an integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU.

The updated platform is not only faster but also expands on the display possibilities, with up to four connected displays, using HDMI, mini DisplayPort (miniDP), and the two USB 4 connections (with compatible USB-C cables).

The Geekom IT11 is available starting with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, including a Windows 11 installation, making it ready to use as soon as you unbox it. Tinkerers can, of course, install different operating systems, with the option to multi-boot between OSs, including Linux and BSD distributions.

Having written about technology since 2008 for a number of websites in Brazil, Spain, Denmark, and Germany, I specialize in the mobile ecosystem, including various models, components, and apps. I tend to not only value performance and specifications, but also things like repairability, durability, and manufacturer support. I tend to prioritize the end-user's point of view whenever possible.
