For some time now I was looking for a replacement for my UDOO home server. After long research I decided to go for Intel NUC i3 version. Intel NUC Kit NUC6i3SYH is equipped with Intel’s newest architecture, the 6th generation Intel® Core™ i3-6100U processor.
It has truly impressive features such as massive 32GB DDR4 RAM support, M 2 SSD slot and SATA slot – see Intel website for more info.
