Intel's NUC has become my new everyday machine, it's as simple as that *mic drop*. But seriously, it has. The Core i5 processor, with 16GB of RAM, an mSATA SSD and a plethora of connectivity options, you can't go past the new NUC.
If you took away a few things, the picture gets worse - if Intel didn't provide GbE, and only Wi-Fi, like it did with the older NUC units - that would be a game changing decision. Two USB 2.0 ports and two USB 3.0 ports would've been an argument, too, which is something I thought Intel would do - but, they didn't - and we have four USB 3.0 ports.
I can really see the Intel NUC in this form, and going into the future, being used in the enterprise sector, and offices. It is the perfect size, and it could really shake things up if it were bought in bulk by a government, or education department to roll out into schools.
All we need now is external graphics to catch on, and we could be onto a true desktop killer, or replacement, depending on the way you want to look at it.
I'm in love with the NUC, it has transformed how I do look at the desktop. If you're looking for a new, small, lower power consuming and affordable desktop machine, you should definitely take a look at the NUC.
