Many times when we look for a compact computer, either because we don’t have space on our desk or because we want it for an office, we just have to settle for low-performance devices. That’s how it’s been until now, now that Lenovo has introduced its new Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i, a small desktop computer that comes with 10th generation Intel processors.
The computer has up to 32GB of RAM and up to 2TB of storage. Also, it comes well equipped at the connectivity level and looks beautifully designed with a very original textile finish. It’s very affordable, making it a great alternative to Apple’s Mac Mini and other models on the market with Windows 10. Let’s take a look at what the new Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i has to offer.
Small but Robust
Lenovo has chosen a very striking design for the IdeaCentre Mini 5i. This small desktop computer has a light grey finish with a textured finish that simulates terrazzo. On the other hand, the top cover has a textile finish with a slightly darker grey color. It is an elegant and striking design, very different from the usual.
Inside the Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i comes the latest processors from Intel. Specifically, they range from an Intel Core i3-10100 to an Intel Core i7-10700T. All of them come with various RAM versions, which can go from 4 to 32 GB of memory.
The storage is also variable. The IdeaCentre Mini 5i can be purchased with up to 512 GB of SSD storage and up to 2 TB of HDD storage. The weakest point of the device is undoubtedly in its graphics section since it does not even offer the option of including a dedicated graphic.
Despite its small size, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i has a good collection of interfaces. It’s equipped with an Ethernet port, 5 USB 3.1 ports (four on the back and one on the front), an HDMI port, a DisplayPort, and a USB Type C port (on the front).
Wirelessly, it has 802.11ax WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, so you can take advantage of the speed of the latest wireless connections.
Price and Availability
The small Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i is an ideal computer for those who have a very small desktop but don’t want to give up the power of Intel’s new processors. It can also be very interesting for offices or call centers where space is critical.
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i will hit the market in September 2020 at a price starting at $529.99.
