I found this deal while looking for a machine to setup as a Plex Media Server. The PassMark [cpubenchmark.net] for this Intel Core i7-6770HQ is over 9500 so it is capable to handle multiple streams of 1080p transcoding. Full spec: link

This Intel NUC has 2 DIMM slots and can support up to 32GB. You may purchase an additional 8GB DIMM to make it 16GB. It has the Intel Iris Pro 580 graphics

Full spec:

One major difference for this combo deal compared to the HP deal is that the HP deal comes with Windows 10 but the Intel NUC does not. However, the NUC is compatible with Microsoft Windows 10 / 8.1 / 7 and various Linux distros.

Some differences for the CPU:

thunderbolt 3 so this could technically support an xGPU option right?
Only concern would be heat in the unit you could always swap the case... and only the CPU would be a heat factor.

Geez why Newegg. I've been kind of leaning towards an Alienware Alpha R2 since it seems to be better bang for your buck for gaming (GTX 960). I've been waiting to see if Dell releases a Pascal update in the near future. Having a beefier CPU for a desktop replacement and the ability to have an external graphics is rather tempting. Anyone else on the fence between the two?

Yes it does! I have a skull canyon hooked up to a 1070 gtx with the razer core and it works perfectly.

I've been waiting for another NUC combo deal. Just bought one. Got a second stick of the 8gb ram (now 16gb total) for another $45.

Plan to use the VESA mount on the back of the $264 Samsung 40" 4k TV I just bought to create a great all-in-one. Smilie

$560 NUC combo + $45 for ram + $290 for monitor (including tax) means a great 4k all-in-one for <$900. And it's xGPU compatible if needed, and can upgrade TV if needed. Should be fun for the office Smilie
