I couldn’t find a better computer for around $500, and you?

GMKtec Nucbox K1

The best workstation for around $500


CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 6800H

Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 680M



Reasons to buy


Very good value for money


32GB RAM/1TB SSD kit


Compact size


Windows 11 Pro

Reasons to avoid

No next business day support

Limited expandability

PCIe 3.0 SSD

No Thunderbolt ports

For anyone looking for a fast workstation that’s also portable and relatively inexpensive, there’s the Nucbox K1 mini PC. At the time of writing (until June 4, 2023), it can be purchased from Amazon for $519.99 after $80 Instant Coupon. I love the fact that all that power and storage is neatly packed into a metal box that’s barely bigger than a DVD set.

(ed: This is definitely a contender for both our best desktop and our best mini PC buying guide)
