The NUC is now ready to go out of the box. Configured to your specification with memory, SSD, Windows or Linux and (optionally) a Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter, just plug in and go!
The Intel® Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is a small PC kit powered by an Intel Celeron, Core i3 or Core i5 processor. It provides responsive performance and energy efficiency at the same time. The UltraNUC is a fully-built PC based on the NUC and measures just 4.6" x 4.4" x 1.55". It offers two HDMI display outputs, a Gigabit Ethernet connection and three USB 2.0 ports for external expandability.
- Probably the smallest PC ever made! Configurable to your exact requirements
- Thermally-sensitive fan operates only when needed (usually silent)
- We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
- Clean Build™ Promise and original OS+drivers supplied on DVDs
- Two year warranty with open-case policy
- Ultra-compact motherboard offers many features and miniscule power consumption
Even though the NUC is small in size, it is just as versatile as a full-sized computer whilst being convenient enough to be portable. The HDMI display outputs provide full HD 1080p video playback as well as 7.1 digital audio output, (a capable AV Receiver is required). An optional wireless card is available.
You can easily travel with the NUC and simply connect it via HDMI cable to an LCD TV at the place you're travelling to - a remote office, hotel room or friend's house. A whole host of capabilities are possible when connected to the internet via broadband. The NUC is the epitome of versatility and portability. Alternatively, you can enjoy an uncluttered desk with the NUC mounted somewhere out of the way - even behind your monitor! (A monitor mounting bracket is provided.)
We offer the UltraNUC in two different versions: an aggressively-priced Celeron machine and more powerful i3 and i5-based units. Essentially, the only difference between them is performance. If you need best performance then choose the i3 (1.8 GHz) or i5 (1.8 GHz with Turbo Boost to 2.8 GHz), but if you need only moderate performance and would like to save money, choose the Celeron.
Clean Build™ Promise
The price of many pre-built PCs these days is often supported by cash kickbacks from software companies who pay hardware manufacturers to pre-install limited or trial versions of their software and then hope that the customer pays to upgrade to the full version. The downside to this approach is that the new PC comes pre-loaded with a lot of "junkware" which bloats the operating system and can cause severe performance degradation.
Here at Quiet PC we believe that customers have every right to expect the best possible performance from a brand new PC, so every system we build comes with our Clean Build™ promise. We install the operating system (if you order one), motherboard drivers, OS updates and (for Windows 7 only) Microsoft Security Essentials / Windows Defender - that's it. You won't be pestered by pop-ups and nag screens and you can get on with using your new PC immediately without having to uninstall lots of junkware first. Your new machine will boot in super-quick time and will stay running quickly for many months and years to come.
Free hardware support and fully inclusive warranty
We offer free hardware technical support for as long as you own the machine. This support covers any hardware query or problem, including advice on maintenance and upgrades. We regret we can't offer software support or training so we would recommend contacting the relevant software vendor in this instance. Support for Ubuntu can be obtained through online forums or on a commercial basis from Canonical Ltd.
Our hardware warranty runs for two years and is offered on a "collect and return" basis, meaning that you don't need to worry about getting the machine back to us - we will instruct our courier to collect it from you on a day of your choosing, then after we have checked and repaired it we will send it back to you by express courier at our expense. In addition, unlike many other PC suppliers, we have an "open-case" policy which means you are free to open the machine and perform your own minor modifications or upgrades without worrying that your warranty might be affected.
