Intel NUC 5i5RYH Mini PC Review

 

Small, yet good. Intel has offered small desktop PCs for a long time now. We wish to test their latest installment: the NUC with its brand-new Broadwell chip. In the following in-depth review, we will delve into its features and performance.

Small mini-PCs are proving that they have the right stuff and can beat conventional tower PCs in office use. In fact, home, office or internet use are all ideal for these small companions.
