Get ready for spectacularly responsive performance from the Intel® NUC with 8th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processors. The latest generation of Intel NUC kits let you or your customers build the exact system they want. From choosing chassis size to memory options to picking the storage you want, the benefit of building up an Intel NUC kit is the ability to completely customize the kit for a specific usage. Whether editing photos, streaming media, or setting up a second PC, the Intel® NUC8i5BEK and NUC8i5BEH Mini PC kits deliver the features people want—in a size that fits easily into any lifestyle and any room in the house. 

The first Intel NUC kit with a quad-core 8th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor 

The Intel NUC8i5BEK Mini PC kit with a true quad-core 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor delivers a big jump in performance compared to the previous generation Intel® NUC7i5BNH/BNK. Whether it’s built to create content or look at photos with 4K UHD graphics for picture perfect entertainment, the Intel NUC8i5BEK Mini PC kit gives great visual immersion with Iris® Plus Graphics 655 and the unprecedented performance of Intel® Core™ processors.

The slightly taller Intel NUC8i5BEH has the same processor and graphics, but also has room for a 2.5" HDD and is Intel® Optane™ memory ready. By coupling a 2.5" HDD and Intel Optane memory, performance improves dramatically with up 1.4x3,6 faster media loading, opening large media files 3x4,6 faster, and completing daily tasks up to 2x5,6 faster. 

With Thunderbolt™ 3 plus USB 3.1 for fast data transfer

The Intel NUC Mini PC kits have chassis that are connectivity powerhouses. Both come with Thunderbolt™ 3 which supports up to 40 GBps of data transfer, and four USB 3.1 ports to bolster productivity for moving big media files around and providing room for peripherals. There’s room in both kits for an M.2 SSD, and both come with two additional USB ports via 1x4 internal headers, an HDMI* 2.0a port for 4K displays, and DisplayPort* 1.2 via USB-C. With the ability to have triple displays all in 4K, photos, videos, and streaming media are all picture perfect.

Think you know what small can do? Think again.

In a footprint that’s almost zero—especially when compared with a tower—the Intel Mini PC kits can be custom built to have the performance and features of a desktop PC in a device that fits in the palm of your hand. The small size means the Intel NUC can be positioned almost anywhere—from behind a display to tucked discretely in an entertainment center. And with improved cooling, fan noise is minimal—which means a quieter experience no matter where the Intel NUC is located.

This is my first NUC and I love the concept. I've bought it to run Home Assistant (supervised) and it was a hassle to get things up and running. I guess if you want a Windows system you are probably better off getting a complete system rather than the barebones. The price doesn't seem that cheap but the build quality seems good and no reliability problems for me so far.
