NUC stands for Next Unit of Computing, and it represents a small form factor computer created by Intel. Most of the NUCs we have shared deals on before were meant to be inexpensive additions to your workflow. This one is going to take a prominent place at the front of whatever battlestation you use.
It has an 8th-generation Intel Core i3-8121U 2.2GHz processor, discrete graphics with an AMD Radeon 540 2GB GDDR5 graphics card, 8GB DDR4 RAM, and a 1TB SATA hard drive. Usually these NUCs do not have discrete graphics, so this one is capable of playing games and watching movies at a much higher level than you might expect. The machine also has an empty slot for an M.2 2280 solid state drive or Intel Optane Memory to not only give you some extra storage but boost your loading speeds as well. It comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed.
The many different ports available on the NUC include two HDMI 2.0b ports, four USB 3.1 ports, an SD card slot, Gigabit Ethernet, and a headphone jack. You can also connect to it via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
These computers are meant to be small. This box is only 4 x 4 inches. It makes a great companion to a system you already have. It can be tucked away somewhere in your living room or office and work as a media player. The form factor gives you a ton of options for what you can do with this PC. The choices are up to you.
