    SFF / Thin Client Office PC options

    Our work office PCs could do with a refresh, we don't need anything super powerful, but the current ones are beginning to chug, with 4Gb RAM and a Dual Core Celeron from around 2014 they're showing their age now. Can't complain really as they were under £200 at the time of purchase and have served their purpose very well (MSI Wind Box DC111 for reference).

    We're looking for a similarly compact off the shelf option, with current gen hardware. Ideally sub-£400 per unit, but can be flexible on price.

    Minimum spec we'd be aiming for:

    Intel 10th gen i3 (4 core / 8 thread) or AMD Ryzen 3100 (or better)
    16Gb RAM
    512Gb NVME SSD
    6x USB ports / Bluetooth / Built in Wifi 5 (ac) or higher


    If you have any suggestions link me below, barebanes are also an option to add in RAM / NVME etc.

    Could you slap another 4GB in and a SSD (if not already), that might work for you rather then replacing the kit ?

    You could go refurb and get probably 7 series Intel for 200. I don't think I have seen 10 series yet though. Some where like itzoo would probably do a decent discount for a bulk purchase. Where I was before we used server source also known as mcs I think, who could probably get a significant amount in one go. (We used them for mostly refurb server kit but also for desktops)

    Apparently my reply never made it, must have closed the window by accident, anyway, found these, should be absolutely fine for office tasks and a serious upgrade from their current systems.
