Engadget Review

Intel has finally made a DIY NUC kit with room for a real graphics card, and it’s spectacular. It delivers most of the power and flexibility you’d want from a desktop in a tiny case. The only problem is that you’ll pay dearly for it.

Pros
  • Powerful CPU
  • Useful modular hardware
  • Tiny case
  • Excellent cooling
  • It fits a real GPU!
Cons
  • Expensive
  • So so expensive
