The cheapest 128GB Windows PC looks like a USB drive and costs $159
XCY has another mini portable PC - the XCY Portable Mini PC N4100 that comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD, which was launched just a few days ago. XCY has taken that same configuration and has tweaked it to fit into a PC stick called the M1K.
The mini PC from XCY is tiny. But don't go by its size! It runs Windows and packs in 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
XCY has another mini portable PC - the XCY Portable Mini PC N4100 that comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD, which was launched just a few days ago.
XCY has taken that same configuration and has tweaked it to fit into a PC stick called the M1K. The CPU on the M1K is the same - quad core, quad thread Intel Celeron N4100, which still needs an active heatsink fan. The MK1 connects to a monitor via an HDMI port and features two USB 3.0 slots on one side and a microSD on the other side, next to the power in.

XCY has halved the system memory to 4GB (LPDDR4) and the system storage switched to slower eMMC rather than a SATA-based SSD. Wi-Fi on the MK1 is handled by the Intel Wireless-AC 7265, which features 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.2. Other than Windows 10, the other notable feature on the MK1 is the bundled HDMI adapter cable.
The primary issue with this form factor, as TechRadar reports, is that fitting it at the back of a monitor is perilous since most HDMI ports face the wall, rather than down. To top that, the M1K's size (135 x 45 x 15mm) might prove incompatible with some televisions due to clearance issues.
The XCY M1K PC stick is $159.00 at AliExpress, but we don't recommend ordering it from India right now. Even if you order it from anywhere else, it will still take time for it to come through customs so keep that in mind.
