The new MinisForum UM450 is a new budget-minded mini PC that packs an impressive amount of performance for its current price ($220 barebones, $309 with 16GB RAM and 512GB storage). In this video we’ll do a bunch of testing to see if this is a good option for PC gaming, Windows-based emulation, or as a Batocera retro gaming console.

This was a review unit sent to me by the manufacturer. All opinions are my own, they did not see this review ahead of time, and no money was exchanged in any way.
