I'm thinking of replacing my ancient pc with a mini and I've seen the Lenovo with i5 processor,8GB and 240GB SSD with Windows 10 installed for £140,seller refurbished on ebay.
These are all better specs than my current pc.
Is it likely to be any good ?
I only really use my pc for streaming,surfing,listening to music,that kind of thing,no gaming or anything intensive
Cheers

For regular day to day, minis are great value and take up very little room, could work really well for you.

Should be more than adequate for your needs. I'd recommend that is has at least a 4th Gen CPU (i5-4xxx onwards). Other than that, 8GB of RAM and an SSD it'll fly along for your usage.

Screw W11 really, is it that much of a deal breaker? W10 is plenty and will have a steady stream of security updates for 4 years at least yet (MS may decide to extend support).

Should be more than adequate, I have one I bought for a similar price, about 4 years old now so most likely much lower spec, I use it as a game server for a bunch of friends and family to play on, and it's had no problems running 6-8 player servers for:

The Forest
Factorio
Minecraft
Project Zomboid,
ARK
Valheim,
Minecraft
Astroneer
Terraria

I bought one of these a few months ago. It’s sat next to my synology NAS drive and is on 24/7 as a Plex server. Great little device. Runs cool and quiet.

unless you get a brand new one then I don’t think it will support Windows 11. I know mine doesn’t. Not until they relax the requirements anyway.
