Intel vs. AMD: Battle of the world's smallest PCs

 

These incredibly tiny, amazingly quiet computers can fit almost anywhere and perform most any task. But who has the best concept for an ultra-small-form-factor PC--Intel or AMD?

Cool and quiet operation ; VESA mounting bracket included ; Supports mSSD storage

No USB 3.0 ports ; No eSATA ports ; Must provide your own power cable, memory, storage, etc

Intel NUC DC3217IYE

 

Quiet!!! At last, a fairly powerful PC with fan noise you can only just hear . It's a lot quieter than our SKY TV box, for instance. That was the main reason for buying it. And it's tiny.

Just three USB ports. Have tried a couple of cheap USB hubs plugged into the front socket but this caused some aggro. First, my mouse wasn't recognised though another one was. Then the keyboard stopped working.

Intel NUC DC3217IYE

 

I have been using this as a HTPC for a couple of weeks now, and all I can say is AWESOME. I have been building systems for many years now including small form factor units. This was by far the easiest I have ever built. The Parts I used were: 1X...

None – buy one today.

Intel NUC DC3217IYE

 

This is an incredibly small unit. It performs exceptionally with both Ubuntu and windows 7. The micro ssd runs like lightning. It feels very well made and has a nice surprise when you open the box

It runs quite hot. It sometimes has trouble waking up if left on and unused for a while and needs a hard reset to recover. Maybe if I set the power management settings more cleverly I might be able to avoid this.

Small Powerful Quiet Versatile Reliable High build quality Power consumption based on my average use was 8w idle, 12-15w when watching a movie via xbmc.

Mildly expensive, though if you put it to good use it's definitely worth it.
