Summary: Intel dictates what software you can run on hardware that you purchased. They only support desktop operating systems and do not offer any drivers for server based systems. My next purchase certainly won't be another Intel.
Summary: ---30 April Update--- Moving 5 star review down to 1 --- do not buy if you want to run windows 8.1 There has always been an issue with HDMI sleep on stock 8.1 but after the Windows 8.1 Spring Update the issues have only gotten worse. Now if you are running a headless unit (no monitor connected), or use it as an HTPC and turn off your TV you are unable to access the box remotely or use it once you turn your TV back on.
Summary: Bought into the whole deal. Got the unit with 16GB of ram, a 240GB mSata Internal hard drive and a Wireless Wifi with Bluetooth unit. Installed Linux Mint on it, updated all drivers and the bios, and was ready to go. At least I was. The machine wasn't. It constantly over heated and shut down. So far, I've switched out everything; 16GB down to 8GB, switched out the RAM modules, took out the Wifi card.
Summary: If you are looking to run a 4k monitor, look elsewhere The description claims it runs Display port 1.2. First off all, it's incredibly hard to get a Displayport 1.2 mini cable. It took me several months on back order to get mine (by which time I couldn't return the NUC!!). Once I got the cable, plugged it in - and found out it doesn't work as advertised. The DP1.2 standard is supposed to run 4k at 60Hz.
