Amazingly powerful for its size

Brian P. Thomason "aDorkable", Amazon

  • Summary: I went with 16 gigs of ram and 128 gig solid state drives, and these little buggers fly. I'd give it 5 stars, but it runs quite hot despite having quite an annoying fan.

Great Server.

DJMoody, Amazon

  • Summary: I am using this as a Ubuntu home server for doing some development for a website idea I am playing around with. I did have some problems choosing a distro because some seemed to struggle with the install, but once everything has gotten up and running, it has stayed on for the past 2 months with no downtime. Would definitely recommend this for an inexpensive little linux box.

Recliner Tablet

Tom the builder, B&H Photo
2 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased the NUC to replace the tablet I use when sitting in my recliner. I had a 11" windows tablet I used in place of a laptop while watching TV. It was always on so always plugged in. I purchased the NUC and a 10" Lilliput multi-touch monitor, now I can have a larger HD and more RAM and a much faster system. I do have to deal with two cords but I have LEVO Deluxe tablet stand so it isn't a problem.
  • Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Easy To Set Up

Perfect computer for my parents

Ray I, Amazon
20 May 2013
  • Summary: I wanted to replace my parent's (and in-law's) computer with something modern. They were using very old computers with Windows XP, and were complaining about the slow speeds. They aren't computer savvy, nor do they do a lot with their existing computers, so I thought this was the perfect solution for them. I really wanted to get the Core i5 or i7 version, but I couldn't wait any longer because I'm flying out to meet them.

Works very well

  • Summary: I installed the Linux Mint system and it turns up in less than 10 seconds. I use it as a hotspot to be a network gateway and a multimedia server. It works very well. No complains so far.

Great HTPC kit, make sure you order the right parts!

MGIxian, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, this is a fantastic little PC that packs a punch - perfect for media center apps such as XBMC. Let's get the cons/warnings out of the way first: 1. The power cord (or lack thereof). As many other reviews have mentioned, this PC comes with a power adapter but no power cord. The cord it needs is the less common "cloverleaf" (also called Mickey Mouse due to the shape) that is sometimes found with small laptop adapters.

User Review

Dexterchaos, NCIX.com
6 April 2013
  • Summary: Small, quiet and the I3 Processor makes it quite zippy. With a wireless keyboard this makes a great HTPC that connects to a network or external storage. Built with 4GB of Ram and a small 32GB mSATA SSD running Windows 8. Would highly recommend. The quality of the unit is what one would expect from Intel. HD video works great. Price is reasonable.
  • Pros: Very small form factor, no noise.
  • Cons: limited internal storage options.
