There are comparable mini PCs from Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock, Zotac, … I chose the Intel based on build quality, aesthetics, and features: DDR4 memory, SDxC reader, IR receiver.
For general office work (Microsoft Office, Libre Office), photo management and editing (Adobe Lightroom, GIMP), and web applications (Edge, Firefox), this system is more than sufficient. This machine has the performance and features for most of my real world tasks, replacing a traditional desktop. I prefer the flexibility of separate components over an All in One.
Some reviewers mentioned there were notable bugs in the NUC Skylake systems. These issues appear to be mostly fixed with the latest firmware. Even with the latest firmware, I initially had a problem with my NUC turning itself off at random, no blue screen. Tech support informed me that I could not have dual boot Linux and Windows, and needed to reinstall Windows – a bogus response. They noted that the Intel drivers needed to be installed in a specific order: Chipset, Management Engine, others. Re-installing the Intel drivers seems to have worked.

Attached are: photo comparing the NUC to a tower computer, screenshots of the Intel BIOS, and benchmarks from Cinebench, Octane, Anvil SSD, and AIDA64 memory copy.
The latest Intel and ASRock mini PCs use DDR4 memory, while the Asus and Gigabyte use DDR3. The CAS latency, in clock cycles and in nanoseconds, of the supported DDR4 is actually slower than the older DDR3 used in this class of computers, but testing done by Corsair shows the DDR4 still outperforms the lower latency DDR3.
* Next I updated the BIOS. The NUC arrived with BIOS version 33. The very first thing I did was to download the BIOS on to an USB stick and update the BIOS to the latest version 51.
* Finally, I installed the SSD (taken from my Dell XPS 13), using a Startech mSATA to SATA adapter. Since I was using Gentoo Linux on my Dell, and I used the same SSD, I only had to update the kernel with the wireless and Ethernet drivers for this NUC.
* Overall, it is running well. But there are a few hiccups.
- Occasionally (if I keep it running for a week without even logging out), the Bluetooth connection gives trouble and my Bluetooth mouse goes unresponsive. This may be specific to the Linux drivers and userspace applications.
- Also, the display may go dark/missing if the display is disconnected while the system is running. This mainly affects the graphical display (X server) - the framebuffer display remains unaffected by this. Again, this may be a bug specific to the Linux display drivers.
- Finally, Xvideo output is broken and not working for this NUC. Media players should be configured to use GL output instead.
I used :
Kingston Technology HyperX Impact 8GB Kit (2 x 4GB) 2133MHz DDR4 Laptop Memory HX421S13IBK2/8 (up to 32gig if you want)
Samsung 850 EVO 120GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E120B/AM) (ALSO holds either 22x42 or 22x80 m.2 ssd)
Microsoft Windows 10 Home | USB Flash Drive
Obviously a mouse and keyboard
I ran into a little snag. When I was done it didn't get online (as there was no wifi/ethernet adapters installed). Jumped on my older computer, went to intel.com ( [...] ), clicked on "download center" ( [...] ), in the product search box I typed "nuc6i3syh" (without the quotes) and it took me to all of the drivers. Wireless and LAN 64 bit. I downloaded them on an old usb flash drive I had and installed them on the NUC. Don't let my little hiccup scare you, it wasn't difficult.
Just an FYI, some games (for whatever reason) don't play over my bluetooth speaker. I used my hard wired speakers.
