Well they seem to come with Windows installed, monitor connects via USB or HDMI. I have no working knowledge of them but have recently bought an HP mini PC and seems to work just as well as the larger PC it replaced.

I know nothing about Trigkey but, have asked a question on the computer forum I am a member of, to see if anyone knows anything.

EDIT: Got this reply from one of the members:
"Apparently they are a Beelink sub brand, a more familiar maker of mini PCs.
Had a quick look and some of the Ryzen mobile models seem to be better than NUCs."

I agree with him on the Ryzen models, they look quite powerful.

I recently purchased an MSI Cubi 5 PC for my wife. It has a good processor and works perfectly with two screens attached via a HDMI port plus a Display port.
An excellent small machine that does everything... It might struggle with some of the top-end games though, but for the ubiquitous MS Office and emails, etc. it's excellent...

The trigkey will play low powered games, or some more demanding although with the settings watered down.
"This is a low-end graphics chip that can run less demanding eSports titles at 1080p"

I looked at that model for my father not long ago.
They are low holistically lower powered versions of a full size system with "u" chips meaning exactly that mostly found in laptops.
Not bad if your replacing an older pc as they are about on par.
Things like getting one with a SSD will enhance speed more than double and well worth the extra.

Win 11 is standard and connectivity not a problem.

In the end I got my father a better laptop cheaper as I tried a friend's mini and wasn't impressed but I was overburdening it.
He uses it for everyday tasks and hasn't had any problems.

I agree with what the majority say that for "everyday tasks" they are good.

Suffice to say the full list of connections are online.

still not that impressed by these small pcs are they simply better because they are smaller and more expensive than a cheapie windows 11 from amazon (full size or mid sized ones . Looking at the prices i can get a full format PC with windows 11 1 tb plus SSD 225 with 32 gig memory for less than £240 while most of these mini pcs are more and do not appear to be as fast or as good and they have limited amount of places to add USB etc. I currently run a windows 11 quad processor 1 tb plus 225 Dell and a HP windows 10 8 gig memory and only 500 gigs but i have had it for 2/3 years now converted from Windows 8 i think so But getting long in the tooth (like me )

It's entirely dependent on what one wants the PC for... In our case, the only use that the MSI Cubi gets used for is MS Word and some browsing. No games, no serious graphics work, no giant spreadsheets... It's simple and compact and especially useful where there is a distinct limitation to deskspace. It's connected to two 24" monitors, a webcam and a pair of speakers. All that's necessary here...

ME was suppose to be a fancy looking Windows 98SE it simply was a mess to use I hated that and Vista too
