Look how small it is compared to the Tiny ThinkCentre PC or the mobile phone

Decent amount of ports for a nano PC

Not bad.

U-Series is a little weaker, but 8th gen performance is reasonable.

Nice find! I’m a big fan of the Lenovo Tinys and these units seem pretty neat. Great deal in my view, especially with the 8% cashback.

I ordered the Tiny (but returned instead for a laptop) and I thought those were small -- wow! Makes the Tiny look like a giant dwarf, haha.

Wonder how hot they get under load and if it eventually throttles.

It's a great little beast but the lack of HDMI (or mini/micro HDMI) is somewhat annoying, I know Lenovo loves DisplayPort but forces you to buy an extra adapter or cable.
Happy Koodo Public Mobile customer :-)

I’ve been looking for something versatile. The downside is that there is no proper GPU.
