Labs brief: Intel DC53427HYE NUC

 

We have been quite impressed by the potential of Intel's NUC concept, a tiny PC based upon its low-power Ultrabook platform, sold as a barebones system that just needs RAM, SSD and a wireless card to be added. Whereas the first generation of NUC was...

Definitely an improvement, but has a ways to go yet.

Intel NUC DC53427HYE - Coml

 

This is the first commercial version of the NUC. It is designed for OEM's, not consumers. It has been on the market for about a year now. It is also the Intel version of the NUC. Other manufacturers have already filled the pipeline with updated...

Intel NUC DC53427HYE

 

Runs Windows 8.1 with VMWare Workstation 10 runs rather well with 16Gb RAM and 120Gb mSATA with 600Gb iSCSI serving 5 VM's I like the fact that this little unit has 2x PCI (full size for mSATA and half height for other addons)

DOESN'T come with a clover leaf lead.... nothing really big but the inclusion of a £2 lead would have saved an item line
