Mini desktops provide a lot of computer power, all in a smaller size that’s convenient to use. A mini desktop computer is small enough that it can fit almost anywhere. Some mini desktops are as small as a grilled cheese sandwich, while others are similar in size to a gaming console. Many people will use a mini PC as a media server, where space is tight in an entertainment center. Some mini desktops are powerful enough to replace your current desktop or laptop computer. You’ll even find some mini desktop computers that will work as a fast gaming computer. Others are designed as simple-task computers, meaning they have bare-bones features and a low price.
