The Next Unit of Computing (or NUC) is Intel's answer to the Raspberry Pi phenomenon. Sporting Sandy Bridge i3/i5 support, USB 3.0, HDMI, thunderbolt, 2x laptop memory slots, and two mini PCIe headers, the NUC blows the Rasp Pi away in processing power.
The NUC is slightly larger and does not come with as many IO's as the Rasp Pi, but it does offer full support for Win 7 and is easily expanded via the PCIe adapters. Hopefully IB support will be incoming as the HD4000 would be a fantastic fit for light gaming and streaming.
What I am unclear about is the total package. Will this include the mobile i3/i5 or do we have to purchase the CPU/RAM separately, which will increase the price far too high. Hopefully, it will be fully integrated and only cost around 100 bucks. How power will be supplied is of question as well, perhaps a laptop charger is all that is needed.
I have a Rasp Pi on order, but would be interested in one of these for a NAT or Rasp Pi replacement.
