Intel's Next Unit of Computing Kits. "A Monster," in a small box!
21 August 2014
Summary: Excellent! New form of computing, just attach to your big screen monitor, in the rear of it. A keyboard and mouse and connect it to your to your Wi-Fi network and you're ready to go. Works like any other computer, without taking up the space that they require. If you want, to make it work better and faster, just buy a new SSD Card and add a new 4, 8, or 12 GB Chipset, then you'll have a Monster packed into that small box. Comes with Thunderbolt outlet, USB 2 or USB 3.
Tiny powerhouse! HTPC / Home Automation hub for me

Summary: This little box is just awesome. I run a PC 24x7 for my HomeSeer home automation as well as a media center PC with MyMovies for my movie collection. This little thing runs everything without breaking a sweat. Highly recommended!
Summary: Love it! Nice fast little computer perfect for conference rooms! Haven't had any issues with it and it handles everything we've thrown at it with ease. It's a little pricey and the box it comes in is goofy... I hope you like the Intel intro music (the money to make the box could have gone towards including a power cord). It does not have a power cord! What?!?! It has the power adapter, but no cord from the wall to the adapter. That's just crazy.
Summary: Well Done Intel. have this running for few months now.. no problems!... i was skeptical at the beginning, but now it is good product! support is at your fingertips at intel page, a bit of a reading but all good if you take your time.. speed is good, have it with 16gb/128ssd, flawless.
Summary: I bought this for my wife to replace her dead laptop as the kitchen computer. I love the size and speed of the unit. It boots Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit in 20 seconds and shuts down in 5 seconds. I would have used Windows 8.1 but the laptop had Windows 7 and wanted to just duplicate what she had.
Summary: So, my buddy gave me a failed laptop that he didn't want. I pulled the wireless card and RAM. Bought a 128gb SSD. Installed everything in like 10 minutes, attached a usb dvd player and installed windows. Boom....done. Performance is great. Perfect solution for someone with limited space, basically this thing fits in your hand. Also, I could see building one of these things for my friends as a replacement for a full desktop. I agree with everyone else..
Good little system with a bit of work to get it up

Summary: I really love this computer I am now using but It is NOT for anyone who has never built their computer before. I live close a major computer parts catalogue store so I was able to get most of what it needs to run in one trip but to sum it up you will need the following: (Note this is purposely vague just to give you an idea not step by step instructions) SS hard drive (the tiny size not the big 2 inchers) Network device wireless card or USB based.
