This configuration is our premium version, which includes 16GB of memory and a 500GB M.2 NVMe/SSD produced by the premiere manufacturer of solid state drives(SSDs). (We are genuinely not allowed to use their name, so we offer the following clues: The brand rhymes with “ram’s tongue”; the model is 969+1“Steve O.,” and it is the opposite of minus.) We use the same brand of memory.
EXTENSIVE CONNECTIVITY: Access the power of the 10th generation Intel Core i7-10710U SIX-Core processor through any of the following connections: Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 2.0a (both of which support 4K displays); USB-C (super fast data transfer); USB-3.1 Type A (1 front; 2 back); WiFi 6(Wireless-AX MAC 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax for blazing fast wireless speeds on newer routers); Card Reader; Bluetooth 5; and a Gigabit ethernet adapter. PLEASE NOTE: This product has NO analog (3.5mm jack) sound. If you would like a USB to 3.5mm dongle in order to plug in speakers or a microphone, simply send us a message, and we will gladly send you one. If you’re using HDMI you will get digital sound through it.
"UPGRADES FOR LIFE": We automatically enroll your NUC in this one-of-a-kind program. Tech Wizards at The Lake provides FREE LABOR for any upgrade to your memory, NVMe/M.2, or 2.5" SATA III drive. All you pay for is shipping (both directions) and the component. We take great pride in offering “old-school” customer service and are a Gold Level Intel Technology Partner, so you know you can trust our product.
UPGRADE FRIENDLY: We install single-channel memory (one slot filled) in all configurations that are less than 64GB. Though this results in the NUC running a few milliseconds slower, which few people notice, it means you only need to buy another stick of memory, if/when you decide to upgrade, rather than having to buy two new sticks. If you prefer to have your machine configured with dual-channel memory just send us a message and order directly from us. We will gladly accommodate you.
NO BLOATWARE!: We perform a clean installation of Windows 10 Pro or Windows 11 Pro, 64-bit (license included in the price), and load all necessary drivers. We also download the updates for Windows up to the day we ship the NUC to you or to Amazon for them to fulfill with Prime. Finally, we record serial numbers for the NUC and all its components. This way of operating gives us (and you) confidence that your computer is in good working condition before we ship it.
