Intel NUC review: a little desktop PC that holds big promise

The NUC's small size, reasonable price and solid performance make it an ideal PC for tinkerers on a budget. Just be prepared to roll up your sleeves in setting it up.

Pros
  • Fast and simple hardware setup
  • Great performance for common tasks
  • Small size, VESA-mountable
  • Barely audible fan noise
Cons
  • No native USB 3.0
  • Pricey once you factor in all the components
