Far from being the poor cousin to big desktop computers and laptops, mini PCs can be a powerful driver of any business. Smaller, more practical and easier to place, mini PCs can be a great asset to any company. Importantly, as mini PCs don’t come with a screen, they’re often cheaper to buy than laptops, too. Here, we’re looking at five ways a mini PC can boost your business and deliver big results.
1. They let you put the power where it’s needed
A mini PC is flexible, letting you place it where its needed more easily. And, in many cases, you’ll find that it’s easier to security protect a mini computer compared to a laptop or desktop.
Placing the power where you need it gives you more flexibility. For example, if you want to run powerful digital signage, with full motion video and complex displays, a mini PC can do that. And, it can work offline, so you’re not at the mercy of an internet connection to stream the content. Typically, mini PCs support two or three displays at once, so you can drive multiple monitors from a single computer, sharing that power more easily.
In an office environment, a mini PC can make a great choice for a video conferencing suite or huddle room, providing the power you need without dominating the room.
2. You can carry them around
Do you need a powerful computer that you can take on the road, for work and demonstrations? A mini PC can fit into a bag, and then just be hooked up to any display where you’re going, whether it’s a customer’s office or a hotel room.
In this way, you can carry the full power that you need, removing the requirement for older, bulkier tower computers. And, for users that don’t need to work on the move, but do occasionally need to work remotely, a mini PC is a smaller, easier-to-carry solution.
