Yeah that A4 processor is rough. If you want a cheap AMD mini-PC you can check out HP T540/T640. They have dual-core embedded first gen Ryzen with Vega 3, an M.2 SATA/NVMe slot, an M.2 WiFi slot, and dual-channel DDR4 for like $50-75 on eBay. I have a couple T640s, using one as a TV PC and the other to do console emulation with Batocera. No problems with either so far, except that they're passively cooled so you may want a heatsink for fast SSDs.

Yeah I do batocera on Ryzen 5 builds. $150 gets you pretty decent PS2 emulation.

I might get a pi5 board because I saw a Steinberg vid where he loaded win11 on it and made a music workstation.

But thatís down the line, just got a arduino kit and Iím gonna learn how to turn knobs and light up LEDs.
