Vega 7 Powered And A Mere 115 x 115 x 49 mm

For $540 you can get a barebones ASUS PN50, with a Ryzen R7-4700U and offers wired connectivity, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, Bluetooth 5, two USB-C 3.2 Gen2 ports, three USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, one HDMI 2.0, one Display Port 1.4 and even a 3-1 card reader just in case.  As it is barebones you will need to provide your own memory and storage, it offers both SATA and a PCIe NVMe M.2 2280 for your drives.

It ships with a remote control, and IR sensor of course, as well as dual-array microphones so you can Cortana can get to know each other; for real people there is a comb audio jack for your mic and headphones, which can also function as a pure line-in if you prefer.   Adding all of these features up you end up with a mullet, albeit a fashionable one, as the ASUS PN50 would function for work or play, simply depending on how you set it up.

Speaking of play, Kitguru didn’t expect much gaming performance from the PN50, so their game testing was done at 1080p with the lowest possible settings.  Imagine their surprise when this tiny box hit an average 188 FPS in League of Legends, and even CS:GO would be perfectly playable at an average frame rate of 79 FPS.   Check out the full review and more pictures right here.

Featuring a Ryzen 7 4700U, integrated AMD Radeon Vega 7 graphics, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5, 8K and 4x 4K monitor support as well as upgradable memory and storage, this little machine punches above its weight class.
