I will be the first to say it. The new Apple Mini M1 stomps all over this ;-)

Sure, but the M1 Mini can't natively run Windows 10 x86 with bootcamp for those that need it.

Seems a bit pricey in my books, but don't take my word on it, they have so many variants of the NUC out there, it is a total zoo, I don't know which one is which anymore.
i'd rather buy the barebone and build up myself. I bet that 1TB HDD is a generic Seagate/WD at 5400 rpm.
This model is Q4 2019.
Windows 10, meh, nothing I need in there. They force me to use Windows 10 at work, otherwise I am 100% switching ship to Apple hardware and/or Ubuntu for older stuff.

This post was written on my i5 NUC on Windows 7 (Q3 2013) with a 500GB Samsung Evo and 8GB ram.

I know the OEMs do it for the selling point, but it would be nice if they had some models with just the SSD. Then customers could add their own second SSD or HDD. 90% of the time when it's an HDD+SSD configuration the OS is on the HDD and not the SSD. Like wtf Acer, Dell and HP. And then half the time when you try to clone their OS HDD to an SSD it won't work.

Not running windows is a bonus. Nothing good comes from windows. It’s all bout OS X or Linux.

But power efficiency wise, Intel and AMD cannot compete.

Atleast AMD is looking to revive their arm line. Intel seems to be resolute on their decision to stand by cisc CPUs

Considering this isn't a gaming machine and neither is the mac mini, why would those users care for a windows port? OS X is more than good.

I'm just putting it out there. Asides from the performance aspect, it's not an apple to apple comparison, unlike the other laptop/desktop deals.

OS is mutually exclusive per device, and not everyone is willing to switch to OS X or vice versa.

Say I want to replace an old machine for my parents who have been strictly using windows and aren't willing to change. The Apple M1 Mini while cheaper and performs better is out of the question.

Apple didn’t include hdmi 2.1 and the ability to run at 120hz. Killed my reason to buy the apple this time around. Maybe the nuc 11 will have everything ??

Wow. Nuc's sold at costco. I'm surprised.

I have a 6i5 that i've had for years and have kinda stopped paying attention to these.

i'd have to price it out, but I feel like it'd be better value to get the normal version and put your own ram in vs just 8gb
