VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The M83 Tiny is small enough to hide around your desk or behind your monitor. Better yet, you can mount it to the back of your monitor.
  • When paired with a Tiny-in-One 23-inch monitor, the M83 turns into an all-in-one PC.
  • Performance is competitive for most business tasks.

CONS

  • If you want to mount the M83 Tiny, you'll have to buy the VESA mount separately.
  • The M83 Tiny does not have any open expansion slots, so you're limited to only changing out the RAM and storage drive.
  • The included keyboard and mouse are wired and feel cheap.

While not as petite as Intel's NUC or Gigabyte's Brix, the M83 Tiny is more than small enough to easily disappear behind a display — and with support for standard VESA mounts, it's not hard to make that happen.

My only minor complaint is that the most capacious SSD option is only 256GB—adequate for most business purposes, but odd considering that 2.5-inch SSDs now top out at 1TB.
