The Awow AK34 Mini PC I had reviewed a month ago was meant to be my low-powered, inexpensive server, and although it performed very well for the price, I quickly realized that I needed more speed. After much research, the Beelink Gemini X55 Mini PC with its Pentium processor came to mind, and I took it out for a spin. How did it perform?
