Most offices do not require very advanced hardware with great power. Systems are normally required that work with some fluidity and offer good performance. For small offices you can opt for simple systems such as the Intel NUC, which offer VESA mounting. These can be installed behind the monitor, without taking up space and usually offer very good solutions. Thus we obtain a budget for a 'low cost' office with all the necessary elements.
This budget has a price of around 320 euros
