Intel NUC Next Unit of Computing kits

- Replaced by the Intel NUC 4th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits

Intel's NUC kit is a revolution in PC design, offering a full-blown PC housed in the smallest sized case you've ever seen. It does virtually everything that a full-size machine does, but takes up almost no space at all!

The Intel® Next Unit of Computing (NUC) can form the basis of a small PC powered by a moderately powerful processor. It provides responsive performance and energy efficiency at the same time.

The NUC kits are a computing revolution at a size of just 4.6" x 4.4" x 1.55". Yes - those are INCHES! They offer HDMI and DisplayPort TV/monitor outputs, Intel Pro 1000 Ethernet ports and multiple USB ports for external expandability. They also have two SO-DIMM memory slots and two PCI Express mini-card connectors (1 full-length and 1 half-length).

Fully built NUC systems

If you don't want to build a NUC yourself, let us do it for you! Have a look at our UltraNUC which is a full-blown PC, tested and ready to go. You can choose all the options using our website configurator and order online for delivery within a week.

Kit-form NUC

Even though the NUC design is small in size, it is just as versatile as a full-sized computer whilst being convenient enough to be portable. The display outputs provide full HD 1080p video playback as well as 7.1 digital audio output, (a capable AV Receiver is required). The PCI Express mini-card connector allows for a wireless Internet connection and Bluetooth capability with an Intel Centrino® Wireless/Bluetooth card.

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. We offer the NUC in three different versions: an aggressively-priced Celeron machine and more powerful i3/i5-based units. Essentially, the only difference between them is performance. If you need best performance then choose the i3 or i5, but if you need only moderate performance and would like to save money, choose the Celeron.
