Neither fish nor meat, one could throw in. But mini-computers fill the gap between classic computers and notebooks. They are compact, economical and usually also quiet. They can be elegantly hidden behind the monitor or under the desk. At the same time, most models can be flexibly equipped with RAM and SSD data carriers. And for most purposes, the performance of the little ones is often sufficient.

If you want, you can build your own all-in-one computer with a mini PC and continue to use existing peripheral devices such as monitor and keyboard. But not all mini-PCs are the same. The spectrum ranges from inexpensive low-cost computers to sophisticated miniature computers for industry.
The c’t editors Carsten Spille and Christof Windeck have taken a close look at the field of mini-computers. This week you will be a guest at c’t uplink, will answer questions from moderator Keywan Tonekaboni and explain who a mini PC is worthwhile for and what needs to be considered when buying. So there is sometimes trouble with Windows 11, while the little ones cut a good figure under Linux.
