  • Summary: First let me say I didn't buy it here on Amazon, but thought enough of this product to share what I've learned with you. I bought the RAM, the solid state drive, the keyboard, mouse and usb hub at Amazon. So far, this is a great computer.

Does the job

Dexter F., Newegg
26 July 2013
  • Summary: Right now its a home server, using windows 7 x64 as a host. I have iis, ftp, and rdp running, as well as a few VMs. Very stable. It sits right next to my router and modem. (Make sure you use the high performance power settings in the control panel as this does seem to affect performance in windows...

As noted above - you get the power cord included (Sorry NUC fans) The integrated video is more than fast enou...

  • Pros: Small, Fast, solid all metal case. My purchase was oriented around this thing being used mainly towards a micro server role including virtual machine hosting and eventually headless or only occasional console needs... I got it with 16GB crucial ram and 240gb Mushkin ssd and all works trouble free...
  • Cons: Not much at this time. This I7 based unit is currently the fastest unit I can find. It is dual core as advertised. It's fast but it would seem that for such a little box, they do not have a big cache and only dual core. Am going to monitor the fan for noise and longevity. It seems to get sound on...
