Quiet PC UltraNUC Atom

This tiny low-cost PC offers incredible value for money and energy efficiency. It's based on the latest Atom-based Intel NUC and includes an internal 2.5 inch drive and up to 8GB memory.

The Intel® Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is a small PC kit featuring an Intel Atom processor. In its 4th Generation form, it offers an incredibly low initial purchase price and also unbeatably low ongoing running costs. The UltraNUC Atom is a fully-built PC based on the Thin Canyon NUC and measures just 190 x 116 x 40 mm.

The UltraNUC Atom is designed to be a low-end budget PC designed for simple tasks such as running basic office software, email and light Internet use. It is not a high performance machine, as you would expect at this price point. It offers 2 x USB 2.0 ports plus a front USB 3.0 port, dual monitor outputs (HDMI and VGA), analogue audio in/out via 3.5mm jack, and Gigabit Ethernet. An 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter is optional.


  1. A fully functional basic PC at an incredible price!
  2. Completely silent fanless operation
  3. We build to your specification and deliver within 7 days
  4. Clean Build™ Promise and original OS supplied on DVD
  5. Two year warranty with open-case policy
  6. Only 8 watts overall power consumption

We wouldn't recommend the UltraNUC Atom for highly intensive applications such as video editing or detailed mathematical processing software. However, the machine is a good choice for general home or office use which comprises mainly light tasks such as web browsing, email, word processing etc.

You can easily travel with the NUC and simply connect it to an LCD TV at the place to which you are travelling - a remote office, hotel room or a 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 VESA mounting bracket is provided.)

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.
