NUC Ingredients


1) M.2 NVMe SSD
Unlike other companies we do not. install SATA III M.2 drives. When comparing prices between us and our competitors make sure you are selecting the NVMe M.2 drive they sell. An NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is roughly three times as fast as a standard SSD (solid state drive). For a deeper dive into the differences see this article: NVMe vs. M.2 vs. SATA III 
OR
Solid-State Drive (SSD)
In models that end with the letter H, you can choose to use a standard 2.5" SSD as your only drive or add it as a second drive for data. An NVMe M.2 and a SATA III SSD make for lightning fast programs and data reads/writes.

2) Name-Brand RAM/Memory
Up to 64GB of either single or dual channel DDR4-2666Mhz. You configure it. Want to know more about the difference between single and dual-channel see the FAQ here.

3) Optional 2.5" Hard Drive
A great complement to an NVMe drive, we use only name-brand hard drives designed to give you years of data. If you're planning to store a lot of graphics, movies, or other large files this can be set as your data drive. Note that we will not install this drive alone. You miss more than half of the fun if you don't use a solid-state drive (SSD) of some sort.

4) Operating System
Installation of your operating system (OS) is free. All you need to do is choose the OS you want. We perform a clean install of Windows 10 and keep updating Windows until there are no more updates (on the day the computer was built). We then load all drivers and perform any firmware upgrades that may be needed. The result is that you get a NUC with NO BLOATWARE that we know was working well when it left our shop. We also use a custom designed shipping strategy that surrounds nearly the entire NUC with air pillows.
