Build a home media server with Intel’s NUC 8 Mini PC at $400 (Save 33%)

$600 $400

Amazon is currently offering the Intel NUC 8 2.2GHz/8GB/1TB Mini PC (NUC8I3CYSM1) for $399.99 shipped. Also available at B&H for the same price. Typically selling for $600, today’s offer is good for a 33% discount, the lowest we’ve seen since August, and comes within $1 of our previous mention. Intel’s previous-generation NUC comes equipped with 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, alongside an eighth-generation Core i3 processor. Packed with a low-profile design, this miniature computer also comes equipped with Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB 3.0 port and two HDMI outputs. All of this makes NUC a solid option for your home media server needs and more. Rated 4.1/5 stars. Head below for more.

Those looking for a more entry-level alternative will be right at home with the Intel NUC 6 Essential Kit at $298. You won’t get the same specs as the featured deal, notably dropping RAM to 4GB and the storage down to 128GB. But if you plan to upgrade at a later date or don’t need the higher-end capabilities, this is a great way to get started.
