Just looking for expressions of interest for the following if you could pm if you are keen.

 

 

 

Intel NUC BOXNUC8I7HVK4 Mini PC i7-8809G 4 core, 8 Threads, 3.1Ghz , up to 4.2Ghz, with Radeon RX VEGA M GH Graphics, Dual Gigabit Lan, 2 X USB 3.1 ( Type A and C), 4 X USB 3, 2 X Thunderbolt 3, Wireless AC + BT. Hades Canyon VR Ready

 

 

 

512gb - Samsung Evo 970 pro nvme

 

16gb (in one stick) of crucial ddr4 memory

 

Windows 10 professional

 

Comes in original box and has been used for perhaps 2 hours

 

 

 

Reason for selling is I purchased an iPhone XS Max as well as the series 4 watch to go with it and now I need to get out of the dog box. 

 

 

 

At this stage I am looking for $1850 which is a pretty good deal imo

Soooo, this is available again. I purchased it from Jase (Thanks) - and it's an amazingly quick machine for such a compact package.... but all my photos are in iCloud (due to my workflow being camera - iPad Pro for editing - Mac / iCloud for storage) - and I just can't find a reliable way to sync photos with Windows...

 

iCloud for windows is missing files even after the download is complete - photosync crashes frequently (Probably due to the 500GB library) - and I even tried Synology Moments but it seems to lose some of the meta data for some reason. I have all my photos backed up in iCloud but I don't trust Apple enough not to also have my own backup.

 

So due to this I'm probably going to get a (overpriced) Mac mini or iMac 5k just for the convenience of iCloud syncing to Photos

 

 

 

Which means this is available - in exactly the same spec and condition as I bought it from Jase for $1500. At that price it seems like far to good a deal to sell on TradeMe or Facebook so I'm hoping a geekzoner might be interested in taking it off my hands.

 

 

 

To recap -

What should I say? I have already one and I'm very happy with it.

 

I just dimmed the skull's LEDs by the relevant s/w tool to have a more serious look in my office ;-)

Sorry it did not work out for you @Shapenz it is a great machine I still have my other one for just windows related stuff.

 

You could try what I did and grabbed one of these and turned it into a hackintosh. Added a 1TB nvme drive and put 32gb ram in it. Cost still come out way under a mac mini and blows one out of the water. Just something to think about.

 

Everything works perfect except wifi which you can put a supported adapter in if you want but I have mine wired so don't need it. Currently running Catalina.

Yeah I’m so torn... the mini with the spec I need is over 3k the iMac around 4....

Did you find that Nuc fast enough with the U series processor? I’m not really up with the play on modern chips but always though U=Slow

I was actually tossing up just getting an old 2012 mini just to use for photos - but then I’m thinking it’s ANOTHER computer on top of the Nuc plus all the laptops and iPads we have floating around.

No issues at all with the power. Here is the geek-bench score, It identifies as the latest mac mini. Then compare it to the score of my $4k Macbook pro and there is not much in it power wise. Price wise its a good 3k cheaper hahaha.

Shapenz: I’m not really up with the play on modern chips but always though U=Slow

 

It's not slow, it's energy efficient since the U-chipsets are intended for mobile devices/laptops.

 

I use my NUC at home as master workstation for s/w and h/w development, 3D CAD and slicing, video/photo processing, graphic display station for a processing cluster, occasionally as flight simulator (when I'm not airborne in reality) and it does it's duty quite well.

If you have access to a Mac, this should do the trick - https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/unibeast-install-macos-mojave-on-any-supported-intel-based-pc.259381/

 

If you DON'T have access to a Mac, that might take a bit more doing, but I've heard good things about tonymacx86's guides.





Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.
