Why so? Are they untrustworthy?

Great company. Bought loads from them over the years - no issues.
Not your Father's NUC
Retail price. Not a deal.
What would be the point of this? Surely a laptop works out cheaper than this once you factor in the cost of ram and storage, not to mention the screen, webcam, keyboard etc...

Not everyone wants a laptop. And this is designed to be easier to change ram, hdd/ssd etc than most modern laptops.

What's the point of a laptop if you want a desktop PC with a tiny footprint that you hook up to a decent sized screen!

There are VESA attachments that hold a laptop behind the screen for this very reason. I'm just pointing out an alternative that for the designated use case offers better value and flexibility.

Then add in the cost of webcam, keyboard etc that you'd already mentioned.

I used a laptop connected to a large screen for ages and it was fine.
I got my mum a NUC as it made more sense for her needs.
Both are fine, it's not a case of only one works.
Reducing everything to price is a reductionist blind alley.

Thanks. I’ve bought a couple of things from them. Seemed fine.

Not untrustworthy, customer service isn't always great and the owner is a bit of a D but aside from that they're pretty reliable. They messed up a bit a few years ago with the Nexus fiasco but that's been the only major blip I've found. I've been going there for weeeell over a decade.
Are there any equivalent Ryzen's like this?

You would need to look to third party builders. AMD's official NUC equivalents use embedded Ryzen processors and are targetted at the industrial market.
Oh - I thought they were as I was told by members on here when I asked why there was a noticeable reduction in posted deals from them?

They don't do free postage to Northern Ireland (or Scotland) and add an extra £20 to the delivery cost - even if its posted via Royal Mail letter! Also I paid for retail keyboards & mice and got grey imports, no warranty, no retail packaging, no driver software. Also forget trying to claim any sort of return or warranty claim...

No need for SATA with NVME. Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will have much faster storage NVME . So forget SATA which the slowest .

No they have no equivalent as they don't have Thunderbolt 3 unless using Intel controller . Thunderbolt 3 hub makes all the difference as can connect to most peripherals. Thunderbolt 3 allows external graphics card or hard drives to be used. It might change with usb 4.0 as usb 4.0 is based on Thunderbolt 3 technology. AMD has best Renoir 4000 CPU but they need Thunderbolt 3 or usb 4.0 functionality to make AMD NUC .

Yes, this barebones kit uses Ryzen. Just make sure to check the Asrock site for CPU compatibility as you need to buy one with embedded GPU

This is just mini stx motherboard and chassis . 10 times bigger , no CPU , no Thunderbolt 3 port, no comparison with a nuc . Uses regular power hungary desktop AMD AM4 socket CPU not laptop CPU (soldered in a nuc ) and which needs big heatsink and big heat dissipation like water cooling . Do your comparison first . You have no idea what you are talking about. 😁. Guess you never saw a nuc . 120w power supply and minimal heatsink may not even be sufficient for high power AM4 CPU so the it will not even perform adequately . Plus include cost of AM4 CPU .

Only comparison with Intel nuc is a Gigabyte Brix computer but they do not come either with AMD CPU or Intel Thunderbolt 3 port .

So Zlain just asked if there was an ‘equivalent’, and that Asrock barebones system is the closest I’ve seen to a Ryzen version of NUC (And no, it doesn’t need water cooling, if you read any reviews you’ll find the standard Wraith Stealth cooler is more than adequate). Cost-wise, even with a desktop 3200G Ryzen chip it’s similar to a NUC.

‘Guess you have never saw a nuc’ - I have SEEN a few NUCs as I personally own two of them, so I’m very familiar with them thank you.

I didn’t say it was identical but implied that it was similar, I’d suggest you come down off your high horse before you fall off though.

Agree . But I only see 10 -15 year old garbage dump salvage metal junk sold by ITZOO selling like hot cakes here.
I really wish usb 4 comes sooner and then AMD nucs will be better than Intel and no need of Thunderbolt 3 . AMD has very good Renoir laptop CPUs.
Edited by: "Hot-Dealer" 4th Jun
These Intel NUcs look good BUT they are well over priced, well made tho. China does small NUC-ish PC's for less money. (F'all support tho)
Thunderbolt 3 is only needed by Zeus.
Nobody else has any TB3 peripherals,
USB3 V1 +V2) is all you need , just have maybe six to eight ports .
I would consider an Intel NUc if the price was lower.

I’m late to this thread, but the AMD small form factor equivalent is being manufactured and sold in the UK here:

Thanks, in the market for a nuc to play with
