No longer just bare bones

Intel has started selling its barebone NUC mini PC prebuilt for a $255 price tag.

Intel started selling its Next Unit of Computing, a tiny PC that fits your business or living room as the whole PC, fully made up and ready. The first SKU codenamed Grass Canyon NUC is powered with Braswell Pentium N3700 Quad core which can run at  2.4GHz.  It has a preinstalled Windows 10, 2GB DDR3L SODIMM and 32GB eMMC memory. It will brand well under the Mini PC Intel NUC Kit brand with NUC5PGYH as a product number.

This SKU runs with a 6W TDP CPU and it will run quiet. The machine still comes with two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, two internal USBs, additional 2.5 inch HDD support, Intel wireless AC 3165 M2 card with Wi-DI and Bluetooth 4 support. The PC also comes with a HDMI support as well as consumer infrared port at the front.This is obviously an entry level model and the $255 for a PC that can run Windows 10 just fine is isn’t bad either. It is important to mention that the PC comes with VGA port for the ancient monitors that are still working in millions of office around the world making potential upgrades much easier.Intel wants to test the market with this inexpensive product and if the sales goes well it will announced more powerful products with NUC shape and the fully functional PC with Windows sales concept.
