Intel’s new small-form-factor PC, the 4″ x 4″ NUC, was designed primarily for kiosks and digital signage, there’s been so much interest that Intel expects products to be available from both system integrators and retailers.
The initial system will arrive in the third quarter of this year and cost $400. It has a mobile Core i3 processor paired with a HM65 chipset, three USB 2.0 ports, and dual HDMI outputs.
Audio will be carried over HDMI, and we can expect 4GB of RAM, a 40GB mSATA SSD, and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The motherboard has dual SO-DIMM and mini PCIe slots, so there’s some freedom to mix and match components.
