Colin, Chorley Music & entertainment fan

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
fitted with a 128gb mSATA SSD and wow, it chuffing flies......
Win 7 64 boots in 5 seconds.
Great piece of kit.
Bad points:
Lacks one or 2 more USB sockets.
Doesn't have audio outputs unless using HDMI. Bought a external USB soundcard to alleviate this mind for £3 so not a big issue.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Very fast when installed
Very quiet
Low power consumption
Easy to install drive and memory in
Bad points:
No Ethernet port or wireless built in. In this age of connected computing it's hard to believe Intel would sell a product with no out of the box connectivity. I should have read the specs but as even a Raspberry Pi comes with an Ethernet port I assumed that an Intel mini-pc costing 6x as much would do.

Powered by either Intel® Celeron® processors or 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors on a four-by-four-inch motherboard and enclosed in a tiny case, this next-generation compute kit is big on performance yet surprisingly small in size. From digital signage to customer service kiosks, from home theater systems to digital jukeboxes, Intel® NUC is an intelligent device for small spaces or anywhere else you can imagine. A revolution in ultra-compact device design, Intel® NUC packages a fully scalable, computing solution in the smallest possible form factor, complete with the Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor.
