I think its not only CPU important here, but also video capabilities too? So then i5 would be a winner here?

I'm curious. If I take a laptop computer with the same CPU spec, assuming there even is one which isn't a MacBook Air, remove its useful keyboard and screen and put the motherboard in a tin, take out the memory, take out the hard drive/SSD, take out the WIFI card, keeping the power brick but no need for a battery, it isn't a laptop and let's remove the OEM operating system licensee, too, what's a reasonable price to charge for all that? I love the size, the form factor is very appealing, if not the lack of connectivity, but how much of a premium am I paying for that tiny size? Also, outside of a very neatly hidden away home cinema unit, say, would I want a CPU running at 1.3GHz that perhaps belongs in a slightly underpowered laptop that favors long battery life over absolute performance? (edit - I notice that CPU can turbo up to 2.6 GHz, so it's not necessarily a slouch, or at least compared to other low power incarnations). I am asking, rather than saying, as I haven't kept up with laptops and low powered units, is this good value?

Getting back on topic, hot if this is what you were after, though I hope the price of these things continues to fall.

I've got this as a media centre with 4gb ram, 128gb ssd

Windows 7 pro 64-bit (which I had spare), works perfect with xbmc so far. Planning to try steam streaming on there too. Cost me £150 in all, great bit of kit. I'd say if you want it as a media centre, just get one of these. For a day-to-day pc, get at least an i3. Gaming? Don't bother, get a desktop :P

Oh.. and Scan eBay outlet have a new one at £273.78 if you're into the pennies :)

I've had loads of media centres, including Wind Boxes, Acer Revos, Pis, various Android boxes, and a couple of NUCs.

The NUCs are the best hands down. Just really solid and quick, and the Intel graphics really so seem to help with 3D films and general zip (you'll also be able to run game emulators easily enough if that's your thing). I can play Rayman Legends and various other games via Steam on the NUC i3 system with Hd4000 graphics, so expect this will run most games on low to medium settings.

Here is some HD Graphics 5000 benchmark:

I would say you need to put at least 8GB RAM and SSD in this NUC to make it play games effectively.

I am currently looking at this as a Plex/NAS box. 4GB RAM (£25), 64 GB mSATA SSD (£40), 1 TB HDD (£50). Free linux with Plex. under £100 to get a fully functional box. I think I have seen somewhere that this can do 1080p on the fly transcoding.

mmm .. why s the deal getting cold?:(

Not sure, beyond that perhaps people are thinking how they could build a much more powerful mini PC around a Micro-ITX format motherboard and desktop CPU/APU for the same price, albeit it's not going to tiny-small, like these NUC and Brix marvels.
#11
It's cold because you can get it cheaper elsewhere - for example, £268.39 from MoreComputers.

What type of ssd can we put inside of this?? Regular, msata ??

Both at the same time. The h at the end of the model number denotes its the taller version that also accepts a std 2.5in hdd/sdd. I have both an msata 120gb sdd and a sata 180gb sdd in mine along with 8gb memory, win8.1 pro and Plex home theatre.

I have one and running a 45mbit 1080p flac audio its not even flinching.
