I'm very happy with Intel's NUC series. I don't do gaming but I need to run memory intensive applications (testing our SAP application + running SQL server). From the NUCs I saw, the maximum supported memory is 32 GB, which unfortunately is not sufficient.
I am looking for a
- 1 liter PC (if that's the right name; similar size as the NUC)
- min. 64 GB RAM supported
- 1 2.5" SSD / HDD slot
- HDMI connector
- graphics card for Full HD resolution (but only 2D tasks, so it needn't be a high performance 3D graphics card)
- Intel i7 processor
Price: if it comes without RAM and disk, ~500 € is ok.
