NUC Line-up

There are several NUC kits available in the Intel lineup currently from Celeron based units up to Core i7 powered ones. Some models are available with a more compact case with no space for a 2.5″ drive.

Clicking the picture will take you to Intel’s product page, whereas clicking the price will take you to Amazon.

This is old information from 2017. I’ll update it soon.

    What about the Z83-W Mini PC? Great little thin client machine with Windows 10 installed for $112 on Amazon. Intel must be selling a ton because Amazon has it listed as THE Best Seller Mini PC, but I can’t find ANY mention of this product on Intel Support sites. And when I say ANY, that means even the Intel Search function returns not found on Z83-W.

      You’re not gonna find that here since it’s not an official Intel NUC. It’s some cheap unbranded chinese box with one of the slowest chipsets generally found in low end tablets, it would be hell trying to use one of those.
