        Comments about Intel Next Unit of Computing Kit DC3217BY:

        I bought one of these around Christmas to make a hackintosh with spare memory, and an msata drive which hadn't seen much use. For $[$]and a few hours of labor consulting forums, I had this up and running fully working with a 1440p Shimian monitor and thunderbolt Dual-DVI display adapter. This makes this machine the best value you can get now that prices have been slashed for newer model. I bought this one on B&H because I decided to do this once again, this time as a late gift to my Mom, to help her make the switch over to Mac. As a lifelong Windows user, buying a full Mac Mini even seems overkill since she will probably only browse the internet and sync with her iPhone, but the power is there, with benchmarks only slightly under an entry level Mac Mini. Even if you only want to use it to run Windows or Linux, it does that (although thunderbolt support is linux is still experimental) and for the energy savings and cost savings alone, any slightly tech savvy consumer will be glad for this purchase.Note: You definitely want to update the firmware to anything above 25 (all you need is a keyboard with F7) and a spare flash drive with the BIOS downloaded from Intel's site, otherwise you risk cooking the golden goose.

        I purchased this little computer to use as a digital video recorder. It is one of the only Microsoft Windows 7/8 computers available with a Thunderbolt interface. The limited interface connections and expandability in this small box requires some creativity to overcome but it works well with the BlackMagic Design Mini Recorder.

          Comments about Intel Next Unit of Computing Kit DC3217BY:

          Unlike the 'black' version with only HDMI output for display, the Thunderbolt port on this model also doubles as a mini-display port, which supports resolution higher than 1080p - 2560x1440, e.g. I have one vesa-mounted to a touch-screen monitor and the other to a flat-screen TV. With active mini display port to DVI connector, it is also a nice bolt-on for a high-res monitor. If you don't need powerful machine this is a good out-of-sight unit.

            To me this is the Best NUC. The thunderbolt port can be used for all the ports you don't get on the others. You can have a docking station, if needed to add many ports. Use it for eithernet,DVI,HDMI,VGA, or another, fast, HD. Also, you can add a PCI card with it. Thunderbolt is not available on the new NUCs. Whats not to like about the DC3217BY? Travels with me to hotels to connect to room TV.
