The AWOW Mini PC variant AL34 is selling at a discounted price on Amazon. The Mini PC has an MSRP of $285.99 and it also generally sells on Amazon for $219.99. However, right now it's selling at 15% off at $186.99. (link below)
For this price, you are getting an Intel Atom-powered Windows 10 Pro mini PC. Don't be fooled by the CPU family being an Atom as this is a capable quad-core chip in the form of the Atom x7-E3950 that boosts up to 2GHz. The on-board Intel HD 505 graphics comes with 18 Execution Units (EUs) and hence it should be capable of playing lighter games fairly easily.
The GPU also supports hardware decoding of most of the modern-day video formats like HEVC, H.264, among others. Only AV1 is missing but that is only present in 10th Gen Intel chips and newer. However, the CPU itself is more than capable of playing back most AV1 content too except perhaps the most demanding ones like those at 4K. Intel Quick Sync video is also present on the Atom x7-E3950.
The AL34 comes with 8GB of DDR4 memory which should be plenty for a mini PC like this, a 128GB SSD and the storage can be upgraded. Both M.2 NVMe and SATA III options are present. The image below shows the I/O available on the mini PC.
The PC has most of the goodies you'd expect like Bluetooth 4.2, Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band WiFi, HDMI 1.4, and more. If you're interested in the AWOW AL34 mini PC you can get it from the following link:
