This is literally the lowest spec Intel NUC made but that being said, $100 is relatively inexpensive.

- DDR3 (others are DDR4).
- No m.2 SSD support (2.5" SSDs only).
- Old dual core 1.60 GHz / 2.16 GHz bust / 2 MB L2
- Max RAM up to 8 GB
- No Mini DisplayPort (HDMI/VGA only)

Only positive thing I have to say is that it supports VGA which newer versions do not (although it is a $15 dongle away).

To buy 8 GB of DDR3 will set you back about $35.99. Then throw in a SanDisk 2.5" SSD Plus 240GB @ $68.95 and you'll have a working system for $207. You could also stick in a 2.5" laptop HDD but those are slow as death and will make a slow system even slowly, don't punish yourself like that...

Yeah, it's not a powerful system by any means.

It would, however, work great for certain applications like simple file serving or HTPC playback (especially considering it has 4K and HEVC support plus an IR receiver).

I believe you intended to say 30Hz.

4k@60Hz is what everyone wants and requires HDMI 2.

Correct, I've meant 30Hz which I think is max what this can output (via HDMI 1.4).

Anyone know if these things can boot off of the SD slot instead of HD? Me got a bunch of SD cards and wondering if I can load Win 7 on SD cards instead. Not need for any fancy stuff just web and email.

Apparently, Amazon priced matched an existing Newegg deal. Depending on your tax/gift card situation, you may be better off shopping at one or the other retailer.

Is the N3700 one good enough to use with the 29" LG 29UM67P monitor?

Never had stability problems with the Celeron line. The real problem comes when people try to use them for general purpose computing. They're only really suited for use on low power servers, for video playback, etc.
