What is it? The Ceneva P3T is the most affordable Windows 10 PC we’ve seen that offers 8GB of system memory as standard.
What makes it special and why should I buy it? RAM is a vital component for an enjoyable computing experience, so you should opt for a device with as much as possible. If you’re using Windows 10, we’d suggest 8GB RAM should be the strict minimum. Ceneva meets this all-important threshold and even offers DDR4 rather than the older DDR3 memory type.
How much does it cost? It is available from Banggood for $149.99 (about £110/AU$197) via the CN warehouse, without the need for a code. That’s an extra 25% off the current sale price of $200.99 and gets you almost 40% off its suggested retail price overall. Hurry, though, as the deal ends on January 11 2021.
What else should we know? It comes with a newer Intel processor, the J4115, which is faster than the Core i7-5500U thanks to the presence of four real cores. This is the most powerful CPU you will find for less than $150.
There’s a proper SSD (rather than onboard eMMC), plus plenty of ports (we counted seven in all), a VESA mount, Gigabit Ethernet and even Wi-Fi 5 courtesy of an Intel wireless component. You will also be able to upgrade the M2.2242 SATA SSD.
The Ceneva P3T earns extra points for having a legacy VGA port, which means it can drive two displays, with one of them being 4K.
Any cons? The 64GB onboard storage is a tad too small for our liking.
