GIGABYTE's design is similar to previous BRIX packages, listing all the features and displaying a shot of the product. Packaging is also similar to other BRIX products; the PC is very well protected.
Accessories include an AC/DC power adapter, driver DVD, manual, and a VESA mounting plate with required mounting screws.
The unit has a very sleek brushed aluminum look. The surface is a hard plastic which is much less prone to fingerprints than glossy plastic which is used on other NUC-type devices. While brushed aluminum might feel nicer to the touch, this hard plastic shell seems to be more resistant to small scratches than brushed aluminum. The lack of a cold touch is the only indicator that it is plastic, especially since it reflects light much like metal.
The material is also very durable and lightweight, offering the best of both world's. The base is made up of aluminum, and metal columns protrude the entire internal height for structural reinforcement. The base can be removed for memory and storage installation by removing four long screws. There are four rubber feet which will ensure the unit can grip a smooth surface. This model BRIX can accept a DC input of up to roughly 65W (19v x 3.42A).
The front of the BRIX has two USB 3.0 SuperSpeed (5Gb/s) ports as well as audio input and output jacks for various devices. Intel's Core i7 sticker confirms it carries an official Skylake-based Core i7 processor. The rear of the unit contains two more SuperSpeed (5Gb/s) USB 3.0 ports, an RJ-45 1Gbit NIC, mini-DisplayPort (up to 4K @60Hz), HDMI (up to 4K @ 24Hz), Kensington Lock Port, and DC input jack.
Both sides of the device have vents for airflow into the unit.
