Graphics is good but am not doing any gaming that will push the GPU.

I use two monitors and it does the job, but not as good as on the windows.

So if you are a serious gamer always on top of new tittles this is not for you, if you are behind on the latest titles and editions and don't mind setting low graphics then this little computer is perfect, and it also is good on the budget too.

Currently this runs 2 Windows 2016 servers(domain controller, IIS) and 3 Linux servers (2 HAProxy, 1 content filter)In the past i have used full sized rack mount servers to run my lab but this little beats is so powerful that it can cover my need in a fraction of the space and without any of the noise.I have this running with an M2 drive and 32GB of ram.

On the NUC, fast boot disables USB until the OS is loaded, so you will not be able to enter your Bitlocker password to load Win 10 if fast boot is enabled.If you make this mistake, you will have to power off and unplug the NUC, open the bottom panel and remove the BIOS security jumper.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I highly recommend this desktop computer based on its brand popularity and manufacturer ratings. Let's go over the reasons why buying this desktop computer now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. Intel is a known desktop computer brand

Intel is a fairly popular brand among other desktop computer brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos above and links in the additional research section down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. Manufacturer has very positive reviews on all their products!

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. As you see in my manufacturer report below, Intel has very positive reviews for their products. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, this is likely a safe bet.

3. This desktop computer has okay reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This desktop computer has moderatereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this desktop computer more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

4. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

image/svg+xml Highest Price Lowest Price $898.63 $463.99

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has gone up, resulting in a 4.34% price increase.

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this desktop computer was $898.63, and the lowest price point was $463.99. The current price isn't close to either the highest or the lowest price point, so it's a fairly reasonable time to make this purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, the price tends to stay more or less the same. Not a lot of price movement is expected, but the price could still move in either direction by a smidge.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $770.98 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

5. There are other options you might want to check out

image/svg+xml Intel Other similar brands: Dell Lenovo

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: the same brand as this product, Dell, and Lenovo. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Dell. If you're looking for a desktop computer with best reviews, a product from Dell gets the best score on the internet. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from the same brand as this product I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
