Intel Next Unit of Computing Kit DC3217BY

 

Earlier this year we reviewed the Raspberry Pi, a $35, credit-card-sized PC system board kit targeting educators and the do-it-yourself crowd. The whole idea behind the Pi is to teach kids how to program PCs while having fun participating in a fun and...

Ultra-small form factor. HDMI video output. Easy to assemble

No USB 3.0 support. Price does not include storage or RAM. Lacks Ethernet port

Review: Intel Next Unit of Computing (DC3217BY)

 

The NUC was intended for embedded applications such as digital signage - that makes it all the more surprising that it makes a good little home PC.

No Power Cord? Really?

 

Refocus your priorities Intel.

Feels solid, chassis looks well designed

No power cord included, so you have to chase down a 3 prong cord. With as much as Intel spent on the box they put it in they should have included a power cord. The sound that plays while opening the box was cute the first time, now all I hear is "yes,...

Intel needs to fix the Display Audio Drivers

 

The WMC crashing manifest itself in one of two ways. First, when you try to play back recorded TV, you can get an error message that says you don't have correct files necessary to play the file. Second, you can get audio problems when resuming normal...

Small foot print, real fast with Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series SSD (MKNSSDAT120GB-DX), 16GB Patriot Memory for Ultrabooks 1.35V (PS001037-PSD38G1600L2S), Intel Centrino Advanced N-6235 Wireless Adapter with Bluetooth, Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit...

Windows Media Center crashes when "Exclusive Mode" is enabled in the Intel Display Audio Driver, which needs to be enabled to get DTS-HD & Dolby TrueHD thru the HDMI port. I enable Exclusive Mode to get HD sound in PowerDVD and disable it in WMC. I wish
