Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) Previewed at Anandtech

Intel NUC

When I first saw reports of Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) it seemed like the perfect little HTPC, although the price (~$400) was a bit off-putting. As it turns out, not only will it be getting Intel HD 4000 (madVR, yum) and an ULV IVB but will only cost $300-320. More importantly it will be easy to get one with retail availability at Amazon and Newegg. Hit Anandtech for the full specs and some pictures of the delicious looking mini-HTPC.

Back at IDF Intel gave us a hands on demo of its Next Unit of Computing (NUC), a custom form factor motherboard that fits into an Intel-supplied 4" x 4" x 2" chassis. The first-generation NUC is built around a dual-core ULV Ivy Bridge CPU, the Core i3 3217U (17W TDP, 1.8GHz frequency, no turbo, HD 4000 graphics running at 350MHz - 1.05GHz).



Anand posted up a video of the WiFi version of the NUC. Pretty slick.

Definitely want several of these.  For business and personal use.

This is impressive for the cost.. I will be watching these..

no CIR? almost perfect 

CIR would be nice, but it's understandable given the BOM, target market, and likely install scenarios (back of TV/monitor) that it wouldn't be there.

These video ads ruin your site on an iPhone 5:(
