Budget i7-1255U barebone

Released last year, the 15W i7-1255U (Alder Lake, 10C / 12T up to 4.70GHz) is mostly found in laptops and OEM mini PCs like this one from HUNSN. Featuring a sizable 2.5kg 225 x 185 x 50mm heat sink case the system doesn't come with RAM or SSD, although many options are available from Amazon (we're partial to Crucial memory and Samsung storage but that's just us).
