Mini Barebone PCs

The rise of the media hub had an impact on the barebone PC market. Manufacturers realize that people are using computers in more than one capacity now, and the requirements related to running a program like CAD are going to be much different from those used in regard to Netflix. This is what spawned mini barebone PCs. In addition to being an option for someone who does not require a lot of computing power, the mini barebone PC designation is also considered ideal for building an attractive, customized media hub.

Mini barebone PCs can be used in many different ways.

Here are just some of the potential applications:

1) Video game console

Using one PC for both gaming and work can be cumbersome. Furthermore, some would like to play from the comfort of their living rooms, more effectively dividing time spent on and off the clock. Sitting hunched over a monitor has nothing on being able to play on a big screen with surround sound.

This is where mini barebone PCs can be used effectively. By putting all gaming related content on a hard drive of choice and pairing it with a stellar graphics card, the full experience of a home theater can be accessed for gaming. This, effectively, marries the concept of console gaming with the advantages of a PC; it is representative of having the best of both worlds. Popular mini barebone PC models that can be used as video game consoles include the GIGABYTE BRIX Barebone PC.

2) Home computer

Just need to surf the web, watch Netflix and do a little word processing? Mini barebone PCs can easily be turned into a machine that fits this criteria. Building a custom computer on a budget can be easy and incredibly beneficial when using these kinds of options. Popular mini barebone PC models that can be used as home computers include the Intel NUC Barebone PC and the Foxconn NanoPC as well.

3) Server

Need some extra computing power that has to be personalized?
