Editor's Notes & Price Research

Written by yuugotserved

The Intel NUC offers a small footprint for those who want something portable and compact to use as their HTPC. Since this is a barebone kit, you will still need to purchase an mSATA SSD and RAM. You may also add an optional mini PCI-E wireless adapter. - yuugotserved

**(no tax to most states, great for those who are hit up with Amazon tax)

Things you need to get separately and install before this will work:
- Hard Drive
- SODIMM RAM (1.35V only!)
- Operating System (Windows, Linux, etc)
- Input Device (keyboard, mouse, etc)
- Display (monitor, TV, etc)

This thing seems extremely pointless and overpriced when you can get a laptop for less than adding the HD. Then you have to add a display, RAM, keyboard and mouse.

I agree. i love the idea of these things, but they are just too expensive. I'd love a tiny little low power desktop for my 8 yr old daughters room. right now she has my old desktop in there and it sounds like an airplane taking off with those damn fans that never stop. she doesn't care, but I hate it. not to mention the heat it puts out.

There are people who have some or all of these lying around. For example, you might have a 500gb hdd and 4gb of 1.35v ram lying around from a recent laptop upgrade. Assemble it, install ubuntu and sream, attach a wireless keyboard and 360 controller, and attach it to your hdtv. Instant quasi steam machine for the living room, especially if the streaming beta works in linux.

somehow i'm doubting most people have spare msata drives laying around. its pretty pointless for the price, but people pay for cute form factors.

its honestly cheaper to just buy an entire new laptop with the same cpu , but you get all the other parts. granted its not as small for htpc use, but yeah the NUC is a very small niche product.

the bay trail one isn't nearly as expensive though, that one you can't really match with any sort of equivalent laptop

My 3217dc makes a great mac mini replacement (I happened to have a thunderbolt display sitting around)

65 Watts?? Same as an Easy Bake oven!

But this product has great potential.

Really want the option to buy WITHOUT Winduz. Ugh.

Not 65w, that's the rate of psu, not the usage.

I got the gigabyte brix version of this last month. Can't stress how small and quiet these are with plenty of oomph for most tasks. I have a copy once cable provider, so have to run windows media center to get cable. Vesa compatible mount means that you mount this to the back of your tv and it's nice and clean.

It is extremely expensive yes, but it does have it's uses.

Yeah, I am not sure most of the previous responders understand the purpose of these devices. These are popular for HTPC. You are paying for the form factor. They are VESA mount compatible (as mentioned previously) and have an IR sensor for remotes. They are also much smaller than a laptop. Slap Linux/windows on here an install XBMC and you have an awesome media device.

The vocal minority of man-children have all these parts just sitting around.

~$100 to just "slap windows" on there. $350 for NUC + windows and you still have to buy storage and RAM.

I'm awaiting your "...but I got Win8 for $15" or "I get Windows for free from XYZ" response.
