So I’m looking around for a new PC for the parental units.
I’ve always build my own pc’s in medium or full tower atx format.
But I realized that they don’t really need that, so something small, unobtrusive and preferably silent would be good for them.
Since I’ve never fooled around any with SFF, I thought this might be a good place to ask for advice and if any of you have experience with these models.
Both the pn51 and the x500 seems like nice little packages.
To be honest the 5700u (or even the 5500u) is probably overkill for them, but at least it should last them for a long time right?
Their use case is pretty much google, surf the web, probably some facebook, streaming, office things and perhaps play some music.
For me the pn51 with 5700u and the x500 (5700u) without memory and ssd are just about the same price. About $600 including tax/vat.
They both have pretty much the same specs.
WIFI 6 is nice. 2x 1 gig ports vs 1x 2.5gig seems like a non issue, but I guess 2.5 might be somewhat preferable for future proofing since I cant think of ever needing 2 NICs.
Not planning on OC or anything, just set and forget (hopefully)
I’m located in Sweden so native currency is SEK.
So it it’s down to possible issues like noise etc.
Which would you choose? Or if you have any other suggestions for something that might fit the requirements.
