Intel NUC 4th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits- Replaces the Intel NUC Next Unit of Computing kits- Replaced by the Intel NUC 5th Generation Next Unit of Computing kits
Intel's NUC kits are a revolution in PC design - now they have 4th Generation processors, USB 3.0, IR receivers and a slimmer chassis offering a full-blown PC housed in the smallest sized case you've ever seen.
Core i5 Model
Sleek, shiny, and with a smaller footprint than a wireless modem, the Intel® NUC with the 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor is at home in your living room, your office, or your media centre. The D54250WYK is equipped with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, automatically allowing processor cores to safely run faster than the base operating frequency. It also includes Intel Rapid Start Technology, ensuring you are quickly up and running, and Intel Smart Connect Technology to keep you up to date at all times.
The Intel NUC comes complete with Intel HD Graphics 5000 to ensure a brilliant HD experience, Quick Sync Video for fast video encoding, and DisplayPort 1.2 for driving 4K displays. Couple this with a stereo/mic jack along with four USB 3.0 ports and an infra-red sensor for your remote control, and you can create a home entertainment system, a gaming machine, a digital jukebox, or all of the above. You can immerse yourself in movies, TV, or games in 4 inches square without the need for extra discrete hardware. The Intel NUC: as small as a game controller, as powerful as a jackhammer!

Core i3 Model
Built with a 4th generation Intel Core i3 processor, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400, and 8-channel audio, the Intel NUC gives you the power to create a media centre PC that lets you fully experience iTunes, Netflix and other online entertainment content — and enjoy it all in crisp HD. The D34010WYK is equipped with Intel Rapid Start Technology, ensuring you are quickly up and running, and Intel Smart Connect Technology to keep you up to date at all times.
This new generation Intel NUC packs more features into an even slimmer form factor. What’s more, the sleek, small Intel NUC has a stereo/microphone jack and USB 3.0 for easy home theatre connections and gaming requirements. Or, use it as a home office PC. The Intel NUC is small enough to unclutter your office, yet powerful enough to run the most demanding applications. The Intel NUC: as small as a desktop speaker, as powerful as a sonic boom.
Apart from the differences between the i3 and i5 models mentioned above there is also one other major difference. Two of the available NUCs have an "H" suffix at the end of their model number. This means that they are able to accommodate a single 2.5" hard drive or SSD as well as a mSATA drive. The benefits of this are being able to have an mSATA as the boot drive and a 2.5" drive for storage. This increases the height to 49.5mm compared to the NUC that only supports mSATA which is 34.5mm tall.

The NUC kits are a computing revolution at a size of just 4.6" x 4.4" x 1.36". Yes - INCHES! They offer HDMI and DisplayPort TV/monitor outputs, Intel Pro 1000 Ethernet ports and quad USB 3.0 ports for external expandability. They also have two 1.35V SO-DIMM memory slots and two PCI Express mini-card connectors (1 full-length and 1 half-length).
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.
Front ports: Dual USB 3.0, 3.5" Audio In/Out Jack and Infrared Sensor
Rear ports: 19V DC in, Mini DisplayPort, Mini HDMI, Gigabit LAN and 2 x USB 3.0
