Baywell Recommends Beelink Mini PCs (4.75/5.0 Stars)
Baywell has been recommending this line of Beelink Mini PCs since 2015. We’ve found these mini PCs to run cool, extremely quiet and they are quite fast and capable. And most importantly, reliable. So far only 1 out of 50 or so deployments have had a failure – in that particular case, it was an abused USB port. (Pro Tip – don’t abuse the USB ports and ruin the PC! Get a separate *Powered USB Hub.)
Fits in Tiny Spaces
These units fit in small cabinets in Dental Operatories, in tiny office cubicles or even mounted behind monitors. Very lightweight, easy to install and great for general office work as well.
Windows PRO Licensed PC for Under $500
Priced at below $500 (verified December 2022), it’s already a good deal with just the hardware specs alone PLUS it ships with Windows 11 PRO License! The PRO license allows us to enable Bitlocker encryption on your hard drive and allows us to connect your computer to your office’s servers, while the typical computer you might buy from Best Buy, Costco etc. will have only the HOME license and will not have the aforementioned features. Expect to replace these units every 4-5 years as part of your office equipment replacement life-cycle.

500GB SSD Hard Drive
Baywell typically recommends 150GB allocation for Windows operating system, drivers, security software and the ever growing list of Windows updates. So, 500GB is now the minimum hard drive storage size for any computer. Beelink comes with a fast 500GB SSD.
This Beelink Mini PC comes with 2 HDMI ports supporting up to 2 4k displays. Powered by Intel’s Iris Xe Graphics chip. This is not a system intended for intense computation or graphics work. But it is perfect for multi-tasking in the office with 2 monitors. Also perfect in Dental operatories which typically will deploy dual monitors.
