    $299.90USD is a little expensive for my liking. Probably the wrong forum to ask but are there any decent alternatives to MINIX mini-PCs?

    My first unit was a G4 and then an X7. I replaced the X7 with an Nvidia Shield (2017) which is great. I also use a Z64 with Windows 10 as a desktop for office stuff but want to replace this with something with more RAM.

    You can push N42C-4 up to 2x 8Go Ram.

    Hi, sorry for my confusing post.
    I mean that I need more RAM than my Z64W currently has (2Gb).
    It's fine for most browsing and working on single documents but struggles a bit with a few things open.

    I'm a big fan of Minix Mini-PCs and have owned 3 of them now. Just wondering if anyone else has entered the market and is delivering the same quality at around the same price.
    The N42C-4 seems to be a lot more capable, I'm just not sure if my budget stretches to $300USD (about $400AUD for me).

    Also seems that the N42C-4 can go as high as 16Gb of RAM which is plenty!
    (I tried to post a link to a review video here but don't qualify) :)

    Cheers
