Build a mini-sized PC system with the Intel NUC6CAYH Mini PC NUC Kit, which comes preinstalled with an Intel Celeron J3455 processor and supports up to 8GB of DDR3L memory as well as a 2.5″ hard drive or SSD. The Intel Celeron J3455 processor sports four cores that operate at a stock speed of 1.5 GHz and can achieve speeds of up to 2.3 GHz while running demanding apps. The 2.5″ drive bay can hold SATA-based storage drives up to 9.5mm high. Once a drive is mounted, you will need to install an operating system such as Windows 10, which is sold separately. On the exterior, the NUC comes with a built-in microphone along with a multi-colored LED ring, so you can personalize it with a color you want. There’s also an integrated card slot for reading and writing to SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards.

Aside from multimedia, the NUC6CAYH provides four USB 3.0 ports, letting the system access printers, keyboards, external storage drives, and other useful peripherals. Additionally, one of the USB 3.0 ports can charge a battery-powered device while the system is turned off. If you need more USB ports, there’s a USB 2.0 header to support an optional adapter with two USB 2.0 ports. Other notable connections include a Gigabit Ethernet port as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi for accessing the Internet wired or wirelessly.
