When you hear DE3815TYKHE, you probably aren't familiar with what it represents. But when you hear Intel NUC
, things are likely a little clearer. The first NUC powered by an Intel E3815 Atom processor is now available, boasting a tiny, fanless design, on-board eMMC memory and the space savings of a 4”x 4” motherboard. There's also the ability to directly power an LCD monitor with an onboard eDP connector, and perhaps most impressively, retail pricing for the NUC kit starts at $129, while the NUC board alone is just $99.
The vertical design should be solid for not taking up a great deal of space, and there's onboard support for both Linux and Windows Embedded. It's essentially a fancy thin-client machine, but the ability to output its own video, use USB 3.0, and access internal 4GB flash storage makes this ideal for "schools, call centers, and other locations with a large installed base of VGA monitors."
It'll ship this week -- just add RAM, okay?
