Hey guys.

On Gearbest, you get the Hystou FMP03 micro PC for about £125.03. Choose "EU Plug".

UPDATE - Use code GB03 to get for £121.89

Next price: ~£150

4k is supported, Wifi is onboard (b/g/n). Cheapest i3 Mini PC I have seen so far. Just a small SSD and at least 4GB RAM (and of course an OS, either Windows or Linux) is missing.

Main Features:
● Processor chipset: Intel HM96 Express.
● Sealed construction with fanless operation.
● Support Intel core i3 and maximum speed can be up to 2.0GHz.
● Support Giga LAN, 4 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports.

● Onboard mSATA and SATA port support SSD + HDD dual storage.
● Low power 12V power supply.
● Support Windows 7, 8, 10 and all kind of Linux OS.
● Intel Core-i3-5005U (2.0GHz)

How it works?
● Work as normal mini desktop computer, only need connecting to monitor, keyboard and mouse to make a full computing system.
● Work as HTPC, using HDMI cable connecting to HDTV, support remote air mouse and keyboard controller.

How about £139 for the i5 version?

Cheap! looks like the wonderfully named Eggsnow version sold on Amazon

this will probably do 4k @ 30hz only. Worth checking.

paid a bit more for insured shipping and UK plug but still only £142 so pretty good. Annoyingly I've just seen the 8% off code on this thread too! Ah well!

just ordered one but can't see how a normal 2.5 drive will be held in place on any of the photos can find on the net...any ideas?

Found out there are screws in the case for it.. Jobs a good un!

Just be aware you may have to pay Import Duties and VAT as sending item insured is normally through DHL.

I fell foul of this not so long back on a tablet, bought 2 identical tablets a week apart, one shipped free no costs when delivered, paid for insurance and express shipping on other and had to pay £25.20 to DHL

Just a heads up as its being shipped from China

yea your going to get spanked on Duty

Gearbest stuff is great but I woul never buy something worth over £20 from them. Returns are a nightmare.

Just bought the i5 version off amazon ("Eggsnow") a few days ago for £225. Really impressed by it so far, it's replacing an Intel NUC. Main draw was the silence as there is no fan (whole case acts as heatsink).
Ordered Sunday evening, arrived Friday afternoon, no duty to be paid although I'm sure this could go either way.

Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try my best to answer them!

Looking at the page, it seems I have a newer version (ports are slightly different and it's a 5th gen i5), but they will probably be similar enough.

Cheers. I'll know for next time. Just used a calculator for import and worst case is will cost me £27 VAT. Annoying but still £20 cheaper then via Amazon. Lesson learned!

No import duty on this item according to the calculator I used too

Looks like a great find! Proper i3 processor (as opposed to Atoms, which aren't bad just not fast enough for some), aluminium chassis, fanless and VESA mountable - sounds like a great micro-PC option.

Fanless i3, interesting. Would be interested to see how throttled it gets under continuous load. I'm sure theres a review, but TBH I can't be arsed to search.

For the folks thinking this might be "ready to go" it still needs HDD and RAM before anything useful takes place...

Great find, although from Gearbest so will give it a miss!

I hear you on that aspect. I made an order from the EU warehouse on the 7th - it's still nowhere to be seen but just showed up in "Greenford Mail Centre" this morning.

Ordered an ELM327 OBD scanner for a mate on Aliexpress from China last week and he got it on Saturday!

I just hope my order is fine - I've had issues with almost all of my recent purchases, eventually resolved after mind numbing responses...

Yes, Gearbest UK is getting worse. I ordered on 23rd April and goods arrived Saturday after a lot of fighting. Again they lied by sending an email that it had shipped when I told them to cancel. It did not ship until 4 days later (Greenford again- Royal Mail tracking but delivered by Yodel which I don't understand).

I did a bit of reading an it is one of the reasons I went with the newer i3 instead of the i5. Less powerful but less throttling due to newer chip.

Hi, I think 2.5 hdd will be fixed to the top cover.
Even if you add 8GB of RAM and 128GB SSD it’s still under 200£.
Great for streaming services and small enough to hide behind TV

This one looks pretty good for £200. 4gb Ram, 64gb SSD (not sure if it using the 2.5" bay or mSATA slot). All aluminium fanless case, dual LAN, Dual HDMI.
4xUSB 3.0 if you want to add lots of external storage.

If this came with RAM and a SSD I might have bought it

That's a PC inside of a heat sync! Unbelievable

Would be great if they ran osx.

Heat!!!

I've ordered one, thanks OP. I vaguely remember there was a deal here to get cheap Win 7 / 8 keys. Anyone know where I can get a legit key for a small sum? Thanks. Also I just want to use it for films and videos, and some emulators, is 4GB ram enough or shall I go for 8GB? Thanks

Which Nuc, most of them have option to turn off/spin down the fan.

I have set mine up to turn on only when it reaches 60 degrees and I rarely ever hear it does so...

Anyway a decent price for that i3 mini pc. But not as far of from standard UK pricing as it may seem, I picked up the Brix i3-5010U for 150£ on Amazon a month or so ago and there and then you can pick them up for about these prices.

4GB is plenty. If you are just going to watch movies and stuff, you might simply install Linux? Which is free and there are versions which are very similar to Windows. (you can even put kodi on Linux and never see it...)

You can find cheap keys on reddit, eBay or by searching this site, most are semi legit anyway, but it is definitely not worth buying at full price.

As Nexusfifth said you have multiple options, but if you want Windows I would say go on eBay and find one of the sellers that actually post you the COA sticker, they are £9.99 and some of the sellers let you select which branding you want (eg. Dell, HP, Asus).

​I have exactly the same tracking issues but in my case it days it's been shipped out via Hermes... The number shows up @tracking17.com as Royal Mail...

​I do all of that with android TV boxes at a fraction of the cost. just add a decent wireless keyboard (Logitech K400) and a decent Bluetooth joystick (Xiaomi Gamepad) and bobs your uncle?

Yeah I have an oldish Android box, but its a bit clumsy. I actually need a new PC as my one is about to pack up.

Funny that. I was just looking into if anyone had done a hackintosh on one this morning. One person has asked but the only reply was buy a NUC!
