BIOS

The BRIX BSi7H-6500's UEFI looks similar to the traditional BIOS, which in my opinion might be a bit easier to navigate for the novice, since you can do everything with a keyboard.

 

It doesn't have as many options as some other NUC-style devices (like screen-capture), and it doesn't offer overclocking capabilities, but it does offer most everything you will need to properly configure the system. You can control the fan through basic profiles and CPU power savings. Virtualization and security options are present as well.

A lot of these barebones PCs do not come with software since the OS needs to be installed and configured by the end-user, but in this case, you can install Intel's Small Business Basics.

 

Small Business Basics is similar to Intel's Small Business Advantage suite; it offers abilities such as screen sharing and security such as USB port restrictors. Intel's Ready Mode Technology application can also be installed, and it provides the ability to receive notifications even while the system is in an ultra-low power state.
