[Memory Express] ThinkCentre M75q-1 Tiny w/ AMD Ryzen™ 5 PRO 3400GE, 8GB, 256GB SSD, Radeon Vega 11, Windows 10 Pro $799.99

I've been looking to build a 3400g system in a small form factor case as my 6200u Acer laptop has been BSODing lately and is having trouble with dual external monitors (1080 & 1080 ultrawide). I cannot find the 3400g in stock or for a decent price. Having something with vega graphics in this form factor would be great; the smaller the better just to keep it out of the way.

This appears to check all the boxes especially for the size. Ram seems to be slotted, two slots underneath at 32gb max, with an available 2.5" drive mount.

These things are great. A few points for business buyers.

1) Mount them to something. They're theft risks.
2) Buy them used/refurbed from Bauer, they're unreasonably expensive when brand new.

Where space is a concern, or aesthetics are an issue, these make solid substitutes for a regular small form factor or full workstation.

Thank you, OP.

I wouldn't buy it for gaming (you can get a better gaming machine for $800) but they're capable of basic gaming, not going to be able to handle the latest AAA titles on high settings though. This should give you an idea, it's for the 2400G but there's not a huge difference with the 3400GE:

Mike's are showing stock in the "warehouse" which I'm going to assume means it's being drop shipped by TechData; the company I work for gets the majority of our TechData shipments via Purolator and I don't think we've had an issue, but if Purolator in your area isn't reliable it could be worth the $10. A lot of credit cards also provide purchase protection that should cover you if it's lost in transit so you should check if your CC has you covered already.

I'm not aware of anything that fits the bill right now, but as an example this laptop deal last month had a GPU that's around 2-3x faster: microsoft-store-lenovo-ideapad-l340-81l ... 0-2368591/

You should also be able to build something for around the same price that would be a better gaming machine, e.g. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/fj4sgJ

Great price, barely more than a self-build ASRock Deskmini A300W. When parts are on sale and if you don't mind spending a few minutes putting it together, the Deskmini is a great option with more flexibility in a wider but still tiny enclosure. Hopefully Deskmini-type builder systems will expand.

Would this be overkill if I'm just looking for a mini computer to replace my Gigabyte Brix with something more powerful? Or should I be looking at the NUC i3-8121u deal at CC for $429? The computer is used primarily for my wife and kids for doing homework, surfing the net, and light gaming (minecraft).

These are perfect if you put your computer in an area with poor ventilation as they don’t get hot

Is this thing capable of doing 4k@60hz? I'm thinking of grabbing one as an HTPC.
