  1. I'd be quite happy with an i3 in one for use as a media PC. Was looking at the NM10 boards but they seem a bit long in the tooth now.
  2. So for 400 euro you get an incomplete system without RAM, storage, wireless? If you factor in this additional costs you can hardly go much cheaper then 550 euro (50 euro for the RAM and 100 for a smaller SSD) and I don't see who is going to buy it at that price. There is no mention of Thunderbolt which is Intel's supposedly new "hot" technology..
  3. Only one USB3 port for a NUC that has almost no internal expansion possibilities? With so few total ports, they should have made 'em all USB3.

    Without RAM, SSD and AC-DC adapter included, those things are at least 150 Euros too expensive for what they are... you can get a low-end laptop for about the same price and that includes power adapter, battery, display, HDD, RAM, etc.

    The concept is nice but the pricing is out of wack. In any case, I most likely won't be buying a NUC before Broadwell comes out so Intel should have plenty of time to (hopefully) sort this stuff out.
  4. These are aimed squarely at the business, educational, and government markets for things like POS, digital signage, kiosks, thin-clients, and mini-servers, where energy consumption, size, and thermal properties are stronger considerations than your average home gamer/user. I'm happy to see that they are finally including usb3 to take advantage of all the high-speed external storage solutions out there.

    While the price is a little high (but its new and Intel so that's to be expected.) These are small and cool enough that they could easily be fitted to the bottom of the counter surface. I personally would love to use these over small ff or even micro ATX systems for POS stations, as our current models require a much greater surface area, and additional room for ventilation.
  6. Forgive my ignorance and this is a honest question: Do you really need an SSD for a media PC?
  7. Never mind that question. I should learn to read articles before posting about the comments.

    If you converted your POS terminal or digital signage software to Android, you could use one of the $50-75 HDMI Android dongles instead of a full-blown PC. Much smaller, cheaper and even more power-efficient than a NUC.

    I suspect the new generation of all-in-ones would also make popular options for POS/kiosk PC/displays. Tablets will likely start to invade the market segment too. The walls between traditional markets are crumbling.
