It’s the first time we’ve seen this beauty for less than $500, so we think it’s definitely worth a look. Amazon has the Intel BOXNUC5I7RYH NUC Kit Barebone System for just $476.99. Shipping is free and we have no clue how long it will last.
What you’re getting with the BOXNUC5I7RYH is most of what you need for a small but powerful desktop. Add some memory (up to 16GB of RAM) a drive (any Solid State Disk Drive or SATA3 Hard Disk Drive will do) not to mention a good monitor, and you’re on your way to a great system.
– It’s quite small.
– It’s plenty powerful, thanks to a Broadwell version 5th Generation Intel Core i7-5557U processor that flies at 3.4GHz with Turbo Boost.
– Good connections thanks to 802.11AC WiFi.
– Great graphics with Intel’s Iris Graphics 6100 with HDMI.
– A jack on the front for your headphones or microphone.
