“What is a barebone mini PC? It refers to a small computer where you only get the motherboard and power supply. The processor comes soldered to the computer and in some cases, a small storage that acts as cache might be included as well. But in most cases, you will have to add storage and memory yourself.” John from Mini PC News says. “In other words, when you buy a mini PC barebone, you get the flexibility to choose the memory and storage according to your needs – something which you do not when you get a pre-configured mini PC. We are not saying those pre-configured mini PCs are bad. They are excellent for those users who do not have to time and expertise to get barebone mini PC ‘working’. They just want a mini PC that is working out of box.”

Here are the best cheap mini PC barebone of 2017.

Performance wise, the AK1 is probably best suited for light video watching or day to day web browsing and e-mails. The main purpose of the AK1 isn’t supposed to be a power house gaming machine but more of an almost portable machine capable of normal web browsing and computer usage (check: AK1 vs HP, AK1 speed test). Web browsing is just as quick as using my main Intel i7 desktop, although sites that have a lot of active content like embedded video take slightly longer to fully load. Check Price and More.

ACEPC AK1 may not be a barebone Mini PC, but in most cases, you can remove everything inside (Windows 10 or more) and make it like barebone model. You can add storage and memory yourself.
