5 February 2013
  • Conclusion: If you're looking to build your own tiny Windows-based media PC and want enough CPU power for the occasional video edit, the NUC can handle those tasks much more quickly than a comparable AMD machine. But the necessity of adding an mSATA hard drive and plenty of other components to get the system up and running means the final package will likely cost around $550.
  • Pros: Impressively small form factor, Runs quietly, Powerful processing performance for a system this size, Thunderbolt port
  • Cons: No hard drive, RAM, OS, or power cable included, No USB 3.0, Low on ports

  • Pros: Ultra-small form factor. HDMI video output. Easy to assemble.
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 support. Price does not include storage or RAM. Lacks Ethernet port.

Silent PC
19 November 2012
  • Summary: Intel has delivered a surprisingly attractive gadget in its Next Unit of Computing mini PC. Despite its exceedingly small size, performance is head and shoulders above all other mini computers we've reviewed over the years, regardless of CPU origin. It is most definitely not an Atom. This is due partly to the superior performance of the 3rd generation Core chip at its heart, and the much improved integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 does its part.
