Intel i3 NUC Update

The Intel i3 NUC is going great. It’s awesome to have 16GB of ram installed, and a 500GB laptop drive. I also put in a m.2 SSD from Samsung. It’s a fantastic machine for the form factor. I was surprised to find that it runs Minecraft well with the onboard Intel GPU.

I think I will be building another one in the next few months. First I need to probably consider setting up another NAS.

My Intel Celeron NUC has been a fairly good machine, however really wanted something with a little more CPU grunt. So sold off my Celeron based unit with ram (minus storage) and happen to pickup a week old i3 unit.

Will post my feedback on the differences once I have it setup and installed. I am considering populating the i3 NUC with 16gb ram, and a combination of m2 SSD + Laptop drive for storage (eventually).
