Choices should be easy for those who just want to get online, open a few browser tabs and edit a few docs, but the unfortunate creep in memory consumption that should have pushed most users away from 8GB machines a few years ago became critical with Windows 11: You need 16GB (unless you’re a pro that needs…more), and if you’re other needs aren’t that great, you’ll probably want it in a compact form factor.

The problem with basic internet boxes like the Liva Q3H we tested last year is that they generally don’t come with 16GB (that one only had 4GB DDR4) or even enough local storage to drop a copy of the media from your phone (that one only had a 64GB SSD). Alas, even MSI’s top Cubi N ADL-021US is only equipped with 4GB DDR4 and 28GB of storage, but this is where 4.5-star Newegg supplier PCOnline US comes in: They configure one of MSI’s build-your-own models with 16GB DDR4 and a 512GB SSD. Here’s its specification list.

With minor errors on its list such as forgetting to include the HDMI and DisplayPort on its list of back panel ports, we’d take what they’re supplying as a mere hint of what the package contains. Click here for MSI’s actual features list, minus the supplier-provided DRAM and SSD upgrades.

So why bother? Because today you can get this 16GB DRAM / 512GB SSD model for the same $260 that the 4GB DRAM / 128GB SSD model we mentioned earlier normally sells for. That’s a great price for a PC that does everything most users actually need a PC to do.
