I've just polished off my review of BenQ's XL2420G G-Sync monitor, and I'm now on to my next project: a look at one of the new Intel NUC mini-PCs with Broadwell inside.
The NUC5i5RYK is pretty tiny, at only 4.5" x 4.4" x 1.4", and it has an even tinier power adapter—probably the smallest I've seen for a system like this. Under the hood is a Core i5-5250U, one of the new Broadwel-U processors with dual cores, four threads, Intel HD 6000 graphics, and a 15W TDP.
The system comes out of the box with an 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless adapter. Users are expected to supply their own memory and storage in the form of dual DDR3L SO-DIMMs and an M.2 solid-state drive, respectively. External connectivity is pretty generous, spanning Mini HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, and four USB 3.0 ports.
I'm going to be working overtime on this baby, so stay tuned for a review soon.
