Intel NUC comparison chart
I want one....Now
19v power supply. Dig it!
drop it to $249 and I'll be interested....maybe
I don't understand why so expensive Confused
<250$ is more realistic
Very nice... a bit pricey for my taste though... but still very nice.....
6 months it will be half that price
$400 that includes SSD, memory, windows license and I'm in.

I'm with you on this one. Barebones its sort of on the pricey side. If it came with HD, memory that would be nice.
I guess you are paying for the ability to buy the mobile Intel 'U' BIN part -> can't buy these low power (17w) CPUs and MOBOs elsewhere AFAIK - and the CPU itself is like $230 (or something like that) bin part. I'm sure it'll open the door for lots of OEM and small startups to customize whether for HTPC, signage or other.. I think its about time.. Wish that darn price wasnt so expensive.
Guys, anyone find any info on how powerful this thing is? 1080p, 3D and other stuff shouldn't be a problem, right? Probably enough oomph to keep XBMC fluid too, right?

Also, as far as I can see, no audio outputs, what does one do? I know it has HDMI but components and such are needed.

Yes, this. The mobile boards with the embedded CPUs are very expensive.
Even the fan looks like a mobile part.. Just gonna have to wait and see now..
