NUC is a funny name but relates to a new form of PC. It is a small form factor PC measuring 4 inches by 4 inches. Why have a PC so small you say and wouldn’t it be too slow? Well the size open up a whole new range of applications such as:
- digital signage.
- multimedia PC (HTPC) connected to a large screen tv.
