Solved Anyone ever hear of TaNix before? Is windows counterfeit?

Specs: Windows 10, i3 / 16gb
Hi
I’m looking into a mini pc. This company called TaNix supplies a 64gb with a Windows Pro licence installed for $179.99. I find it odd to have Pro at that price point since competitors like Beelink are all over $300. Just was wondering if it could be a counterfeit windows for that price or a machine that is really poor quality. Has anyone bought something from this brand before?
Thank you

If you need/want a small footprint PC, the HP in response #2 is still quite small, roughly 10" x 10" by 2.6" high. Not to mention it's upgrade-able & there's no doubt Windows 10 is legal. If you choose 8GB RAM & a 256GB SDD in the link, the price goes up to $143, but it's still $37 cheaper than the shady TaNix.

TANIX is Chinese product so I should be wary about legitimate licensed OS.

The website doesn't even bother to use https ...

The comment section on Amazon suggest poor performance.

The hp is a great idea, thanks for that.
So I take Beelink is the same case as TaNix as well? I just saw they’re China as well and no https. Anyone ever have a Beelink?

I’d be very wary of it, and other similar items too.

If it looks too good to be true, it generally is too good to be true...

In this case seriously dubious...

These atom CPU's are targeted for the mobile market; netbooks, tablets, IoT, etc..
Do not expect this to perform the same as a high end desktop PC.
