Deal Details

Last Edited by annie930ny June 9, 2016 at 02:50 PM
Intel 6th generation Skull Canyon NUC, home theater PC.

This is $100 off Amazon's price and $60 off the second best I found, which was Newegg at $649.99.

This is a different look for the Intel NUC line, which they are advertising as a "gaming" barebones system kit. You have to install your own hard drive and memory. Just a note, but it's not going to compete with your powerhouse PCs and their GTX 970 (and up) video cards. It's more suitable, imo, for home theater. It will play 4k video in Kodi (XBMC), no problem.

Yeah I think the hack mini is dead since 10.10.3 when Apple made the upgrade process much harder. It doesn't help that most of Apple's desktop hardware is so old. That being said, the specs on this machine are phenomenal for the price and this can beat out 940m graphics. Would be a great 4k player for those who have a lot of source videos.

I did too, but its not worth the bs for an i3 ivy-bridge computer. For 2 years it was pretty sweet though.

Not even remotely worth it. A Haswell NUC will play 4K no issue, and this new one doesn't even support proper HEVC decoding. After tax, you're at Newegg's price, also.

Have a Haswell i5 NUC with the 5000 graphics. I'm not so sure about this.

I have a Haswell NUC, as well. Two of them, i5s with the HD 5000. It will absolutely play 4K.

Again, this new NUC is NOT worth it until it does HEVC decoding, fully. Will be waiting for the next NUC for that, if then!

I suppose this is why there's no i7 in the regular NUC line, aside from possibly heat issues with earlier i7 variants.

FYI if you plan to use this as an HTPC, it doesn't support HDMI-CEC out of the box. You'll need an internal or external adapter. https://www.pulse-eight.com/p/154...ec-adapter for example.

Yours can do 4k at 60hz? Mine can't.

Not everyone is using these as HTPCs. Some of us actually use them as workstations and/or servers.

This is much, much faster than the Haswell Nucs.

Not interested in 4K/60 99% of the time. Most everything is 4K/24p.

And certainly not interested in 4K/60 without HEVC!
