Key features: Small size, nice design, runs Windows 11

Price history: This is the cheapest we've ever seen the AMR5. Before today's deal, Amazon did offer the same model for $379 back in May. At the time of writing, however, the retailer is back up to $449 - it's still a $50 discount, but the manufacturer's own offer handily beats it.

Price comparison: Amazon: $449 

Reviews consensus: This adorable little PC weighs just 2.7lbs and offers a full Windows 11 experience in a small chassis. It's affordable, with some nice RGB lighting, and while it won't play the latest AAA games at high specs, it'll give creative workloads like image or video editing a good go. This discounted model has a 512GB SSD for storage, and 16GB of RAM. It's also packing the AMD Ryzen 5 5600U chip.

Buy it if: You want a small, affordable PC for connecting to your existing peripherals. You want Windows 11, or a device that looks stylish.

Don't buy it if: You need a computer that comes with a keyboard, mouse, and more in the box. You want to play the latest and greatest games.
