What is it? The MacNano (not to be confused with Mac Mini) is the most affordable WIndows 10 PC we've seen, like, ever.
What makes it special and why should I buy it? Other than the fact that it has four cores, it comes with a USB-C connector, a Gigabit Ethernet port and even a legacy VGA port. Not bad for less than $100. Stocks are very limited we've been toldIf you've found something similar with a lower price tag, let us know via Twitter!
How much does it cost? It is available from Banggood for $87.51 (about £64/AU$113) using the code BGdec27 for the CN warehouse. That's an extra 40% off the current sale price of $145.85. Overall, you get almost 55% off its suggested retail price. Hurry up though as the deal ends on January 31 2021.

What else should we know? Don't dither too much as this is a clearance sales we've been told. You won't get a quad-core Celeron (about 3X faster than an Atom X5) with 4GB RAM, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN and 802.11ac for that low. It simply doesn't happen. It is actually a very good computer that would be equally at ease as a business PC. There's no VESA mount but you do have five USB ports (including a USB-C), two video connectors, a memory card reader and a built-in microphone. As a mini PC, it offers exceptional value for money. Should you understand and embrace its limitations, the MacNano will be a great alternative to similar priced entry-level desktop computers.
Any cons? The onboard storage is a tad too small and the use of eMMC means that it will be as slow as a hard disk drive.
