What makes it special, why should I buy it? Three things. Windows 10 Pro, Thunderbolt 3 and a 10th generation Intel Core i3 CPU, which is significantly faster than, say, a 7th generation Core i7 processor. You won't find a lower price if you're after a new Core i3 device with Windows 10 Pro. But if you can prove us wrong, let us know via Twitter.
How much does it cost? It's available from Banggood for $319.99 (about £240/AU$425) until December 31, 2020, when you use code BGDec12a, which applies to the HK Warehouse. That's an extra $10 off the current sale price of $329.99. Overall, you get almost 46% off its suggested retail price.

What else should we know? It has two memory slots that can take up to 64GB of memory (it comes with 8GB by default). It has a 256GB NVMe SSD, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, Thunderbolt 3/Type-C, four USB ports, a card slot, two 4K HDMI ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port.
On the face of it, it looks a lot like the Minisforum X35G, with the same i3-1005G1. The latter, however, has two Gigabit Ethernet ports, twice the memory and twice the storage for $100 extra.
Any cons? At this price, nothing worth mentioning.
Have you reviewed it? Not yet, but we're working on it. We have reviewed the Beelink L55, which seems to share the same chassis.
