  • Summary: First things first, this is a bare bones unit. I came across this product while helping someone else yesterday, had no idea best buy carried it..
  • Pros: Small, easy to install parts, easy to carry around
  • Cons: Peripherals, lack of necessary cables.

Very Small!

William Jones Jr. "Bill Jones", Amazon

  • Summary: This unit is the perfect size for mounting to an LDC display to make a custom All-In-One system. I added a Logitech wireless mouse/keyboard to make my system only require two power plugs to operate. I also ordered a 1.5 ft HDMI cable to keep things tidy behind the monitor. Runs Windows 7 Ultimate very well.

User Review

Jason_C, NCIX.com

  • Summary: Great little machines. They've become the standard PC for the sales and operations people at my company. Compact, quiet, and mountable to the back of most monitors so you can keep desks free of clutter. Have had one NUC out of about 15 so far with some issues out of the box but it looks like that was most likely bad ram.
  • Pros: Small, quiet.
  • Cons: Biggest downside is too few usb ports. The newer model NUCs have fixed this.

The NUC is great but I love the box it came in better

Brian Huntsbarger, Amazon

  • Summary: The box it came in was completely better than the actual computer itself. You open it and it makes the Intel chime from the commercials. I actually hid it in my drop ceiling so at work when someone turns on the light in the room the sound plays :) Worth Every penny!

Excellent performance and form factor

  • Summary: I added 8GB of RAM, Wireless card and will soon be running an mSATA hard drive. Right now it's running XBMC (OpenElec) on a USB flash stick and works well. The mSATA HDD should increase the performance even more. This is a very powerful computer for home theater and digital signage. (Note: This core i3 model doesn't get really hot like the Celeron version does.

Great for HTPC, Boxee Box replacement

Anthony Fleck, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: This unit does not include a power cable, a hard drive, or memory. That being said, lets continue. I had been looking for a decent item to replace my Boxee Box for a long time. Finally I came across the NUC and OpenELEC. I bought a Crucial m4 64GB mSATA SSD, a stick of Corsair 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3 1333MhZ memory, a Windows MCE compatible IR receiver, and a Logitech Harmony Smart Control Remote and Hub.

Performance better than expected

Tom Alperin, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: Would be nice if the fan wasn't running all the time, but it is still reasonably quiet. Definitely not a gaming computer, however not my intended use. The fact that the cable is not included is not good, not so much because of the price. Mine arrived days after everything else had arrived. Would have gladly traded the silly speaker in the box for a power cable. The first piece to arrive was not the NUC, but the SSD.

good, basic workstation for many clients

D. Rambow "blue sky leader", Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: I build systems for many clients with offices from 5-20 stations. They need Windows, Office, Internet, and a couple of company applications. These Intel NUC units really fit the bill, to replace their 5-8 year old pc's.

So awesome

  • Summary: The NUC is incredibly small and its specs line up with a lot of way way larger desktop towers I was looking at. Cant recommend this enough!
