The IdeaCentre Mini 5i is a fetching, feature-packed mini PC. If you're not wedded to the size, you can find better value with the Acer Aspire TC-895-UA91. While both systems offer a leg up on the AMD-based mini PCs, neither is well-suited for gaming.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Lenovo IdeaCentre Mini 5i is a very capable mini PC. Our review configuration boasts an Intel Core i5-10400T, an Intel UHD Graphics 630, and 8GB of memory. Multi-tasking is a breeze on this mini PC as well, even when you have 20 or more browser tabs open at the same time. In a quiet room, you'll hardly notice it at all. However, it should be more than enough for most tasks like editing and gaming.
