Anyone got a spare Intel NUC lying around they no longer want/need?

 

Preferably i3/i5, can be with or without RAM/SSD/Wireless card, and could be interested in lower spec CPU options.

 

Not sure on exact budget, maybe up to $250 depending on specs.
PM me.

 

Thanks

Is this of any interest if you just want a cheapie?

I've not bothered relisting it yet and won't do so until Monday.  It's currently got a 160Gb spinner in it but you can fit any 2.5" drive.

 

The motherboard is basically new....  I fried the last one somehow, replaced it, and then never used the machine.  It's just sat in a cupboard for a couple of years.  A larger stick of RAM should be easy and cheap to track down secondhand.

 

$100 west Auckland pickup or plus shipping.

Thanks for the offer on the XPC, I hadn't seen those before.

 

But at this stage sticking to an Intel NUC for its form factor, plus ideally a better CPU than the Atom.

Yeah the ITX motherboards were pretty cool when they were new, but have been superseeded by the NUC form factor.  Before I killed the old mobo (which had a dual-core+hyperthreaded Atom) this was actually my main business computer for a year for doing MS Office-y stuff and it was just fine running Windows 7.

 

It's here if anyone else wants it.

Bump.

 

I'm still on the lookout for a NUC, still undecided between an i5 or celeron based NUC.
Let me know if anyone has either.

 

My budget has increased to $350, dependent on specs (e.g. higher budget for an i5 nuc).

Update, I've purchased an i5 NUC.

 

Thanks to those in this thread or via PM's who offered various devices.
