Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there a version with usb 3.0

    Not yet, rumor mill suggests one will be introduced in Fall of 2013

  • Anybody know would PC3-8500S RAM work with this? Can this take 2.5" drives or SSD only? Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure what your RAM is but if it says "soDimm" it will fit. And It can't take 2.5" , it only takes mobile SSD (mSata)

  • What's the diff between using a thunderbolt-connected hard drive and a USB hard drive for storage?

    Keep in mind this 1st Gen NUC only has USB 2.0. Thunderbolt will be faster (USB 3 speed) but (still) too expensive. Also, the thunderbolt port can be used as a mini-display port to connect a monitor so you can have a dual monitor setup when you add the HDMI port. I think the newer NUCs will have USB 3.0 so I would not consider this model.
