Discounts on Skylake NUCs
Now that the Kaby Lake NUCs are out, some good deals can be had when shopping for the previous generation. Amazon is offering the i3 Skylake NUC for $235 and the i5 for $300. The i3 offer is a Prime members only, but if you’re not a member already you can click here to sign up for a 30 days free trial that can be cancelled any time (like, right after the order).
The Skylake NUC is still a very good performer even if the Kaby Lake is already out. I’d say the only major things that are missing is the 10-bit HEVC HW decode and the HDMI 2.0 port. If you’re not building a media PC these might not be an issue. You can read my comparison of the Skylake and Kaby Lake performance here.
