The Intel NUC Mini PC range receives a stealth upgrade at CES 2017. Now featuring the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processors, Iris Plus graphics, Thunderbolt 3 and supporting 4K Ultra HD video.

The pint-sized computer platform is remarkably a full-blown PC that’s as versatile as it comes, suitable for applications at home or business.

The great thing about the Intel NUC is its space-saving form factor, and surprising customizability and upgradability. The four-by-four inch Intel NUC board comes with a soldered-on processor, and the rest can be customized to suit your requirements.

Intel has upgraded its NUC range across the board, and has also tweaked the design and colour.
