Usually in the offices they tend to look for solutions that offer good performance and an adjusted price. If you are looking for a powerful solution for your office that will offer us excellent performance. The base is an Intel NUC with a Core i3 that has Thunderbolt connectivity. In addition, we will install 8GB of RAM and a large capacity M.2 NMVe drive. We have also included the keyboard and mouse, in case you don't have them.

This budget has a price of less than 450 euros

System: Intel NUC8I3BEK2

RAM Memory: Crucial 4 GB @ 3200MHz Single Rank x16

Most tasks in the office field require very little RAM. So on our budget we have counted two of these modules to set them to Dual Channel. Thus we will obtain a total of 8GB DDR4 in SO-DIMM format with a frequency of 3200MHz. We have opted for this frequency, to get a little extra performance and the difference with the 2666MHz is ‚ā¨ 5 per module, so it is well worth it.


Storage: Crucial P1 500GB
