The MINISFORUM DeskMini UM350 is a mini PC that stands out for offering a very interesting hardware configuration, for coming equipped with Manjaro Linux and for having a price that is certainly very affordable, so much so that we can consider it as an attractive option to renew a team destined for office automation or light editing jobs.
At the design level, the MINISFORUM DeskMini UM350 has a sober and discreet line that simply complies. In terms of hardware, this is where this team shines with its own light, since it has a Ryzen 5 3550H APU, a solution based on Zen + that has a quad-core CPU and eight threads, and comes with an integrated Radeon Vega 8 GPU.
Its performance is very good, since we are talking about a chip that has a processor whose IPC is only slightly below Intel’s Skylake architecture. On the other hand, its integrated GPU is also far above Intel’s integrated solutions, so in the end we have a chip that holds its own quite well in numerous tasks.
It has two slots for DDR4 memory, although in its base version it comes without RAM. Said version of the MINISFORUM DeskMini UM350 includes the Ryzen 5 3550H APU and a 256GB SSD with Manjaro Plasma Edition pre-installed, and is priced at just €284. Through the official MINISFORUM store we can configure it with up to 16 GB of RAM and with a 512 GB SSD. This configuration, which is the most powerful, has a price in exchange for €379.11a very interesting figure considering the possibilities it offers.
The MINISFORUM DeskMini UM350 has Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetoothand has a wide range of connectors:
- 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C.
- 3 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A.
- 1 x USB 3.0 Gen 1 Type-A.
- 1 x 2.5Gbps Ethernet.
- 1 x 3.5mm jack.
Although it comes with a Linux distro, if we need it we can create it without problems a partition for Windows 10 or Windows 11, since it is compatible with both operating systems.
