The smaller they get the closer they look to an appliance, in my opinion. Considering I have a Silverstone LC17...
Would you pay SO MUCH MORE for this? Would you buy one for one purpose only and doesnt think that you're wasting money just to have a tiny device? I want a tiny device, doesnt need to be an i7, an i3 capable of 1080p, web surfing, and xbmc its enough for me, I have a server for more heavy duties. And who doesnt have a server? Ok, then I think they should buy a normal pc with upgrade options AND a tiny PC.

Ok, I got it. Nice device btw. But between new iris pro and gt650m, I prefer nvidia's solution, if possible.

Nice. But the only benefit I see is a portable option to a gaming pc.

On the coments:

Dude the iris pro isn't even close to gtx600 series dedicated cards. It is a big step forward in integrated graphics but still a far cry from even a mid range dedicated card.

@stickbo Do you have any link?

Intel themselves have compared the Iris Pro with a GeForce 650m.

Which is lightyears away from the gtx600 dedicated cards.

@Bandalo @MiguelAngelGimenez @stickbo Thanks, this is the important stuff we want to read before purchasing a gaming PC. You literally saved me from purchasing a system that won't be able to play games at high settings.

@MiguelAngelGimenez @Bandalo @stickbo Glad to help. This is a very nice box for what it is, but it's not going to compete with a full-on gaming computer."

And I agree...

Hi.

I am looking at getting a Biostar NM70I-1037U that comes with Dual-core Celeron 1037U processor (1.8GHz) and Intel HD graphics. I will shove 4GB of RAM in as well. Do you think this will be enough to run XBMC smoothly (iPlayer, You Tube etc) in a Windows XP environment?

Cheers.

Nice I tried to install openelec on mine but there were too many issues, Audio, Remote, USB...

Hi guys, been looking at the NUC for a while now but the Brix has caught my attention at around £140 for the celeron chip. Does this perform well with Xbmc and a variety of skins or should I look at an i3 version? Don't really want to spend that much but do want a new xbmc box asap

Would the Zotac ID18 be an alternative to the Celeron Brix? Currently ebuyer have it for £99 - with good reviews.

£95 at CCL

And it has a Celeron 1007 which should work well with openelec as I use a 847 on openelec and it works well

Has anyone got the new Haswell Brix yet, if so, what is it like with XBMC - any problems etc?

Cheers Smile

I just ordered one "Gigabyte Brix Barebone GB-BXi7-4500U 1,8 - 3,0 GHz " so the new i7 Haswell .
I will see how it is behaving, normally should handle quite well PLEX and XBMC...
