Deal | Intel NUC 8 with Core i3, Radeon GPU, 8 GB LPDDR4 RAM, and 1 TB HDD now on sale for $329 USD
If you missed the Lenovo ThinkCentre sale last month, then this Intel NUC might be the next best alternative. Amazon is selling last year's Intel mini PC for just under $330 USD from its original launch of price almost $600.
The deal is notable because it includes RAM, a 1 TB mechanical hard drive, and a copy of Windows 10 Home whereas most other NUCs are barebone kits only. It even integrates a Radeon 540 GPU with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM which is uncommon to see on any mini PC. Though not gaming capable, it will at least about 2.5x faster than the usual Intel UHD Graphics solution.
The main drawbacks to keep in mind are the non-upgradeable RAM and likely louder fan noise due to the discrete GPU. Otherwise, the Intel NUC should fit well in a small room or HTPC setup where it won't take up all that much space.
