Can you (or anyone else) link me to a better option? I would prefer to buy it with everything already installed, but I am tech savvy enough to install on my own if it will save me $$$. Also, I have no problem with the "free" Win 10 version. Smile

Thanks!

EDIT: Just wanted to add that if the new NUC is as snappy as the Chromebox (what I'm used to), I'll be more than happy! Smile

What is the max are you willing to spend and not look back for an upgrade?

On the Cheap side this would be my number one option Intel NUC DN2820/2830, offer the seller $70.

On the Max side, I suggest getting Intel Kaby Lake.

Well, I have always been the one to pay a bit more for quality and longevity. My original $150 price point was only because that's about what I paid for the Chromebox. Smile

Looks like the one in your first link does not come with RAM, HDD or Win 10 (Win 8.1). That's not really a big deal since I've built PCs before (never a NUC), but would prefer an all-in-one solution (and am willing to pay a small premium for that convenience).

Do you got something "mid-range" (say $200-$250, all-in) that you could recommend?? It looks like anything Kaby Lake "bare bones" would be $300+, is that about right?

The AsRock Kaby Lake will be my number one choice Kaby Lake, because of the dual HDMI ports, you can also look at the Apollo Lake NUC
