    Default Assorted mini-PCs (NUC etc) for sale

    So I have a few mini-PCs for sale and I figured I would put them up here before listing them on eBay.

    These are all in great condition (might have a few scratches in the plastic here and there, and one is missing a screw), and barely used. I bought them for a project that ended up changing in direction due to recent product announcements *cough*Xeon-D*cough*, so now they are just gathering dust.

    For any of you thinking of or working on some really small mods, one of these might work out great for you.

    Each comes with the appropriate power supply.

    From left to right, Asus Chromebox-M004U, Intel NUC D5420WYK1, Inteo NUC DN2820FYKH, and Jetway NF3A.






    Asus Chromebox-M004U
    The original Chromebox. I got this to mess around with Chrome OS and to see if an idea would work. Since then, better options for my needs have arisen.

    Linux can be installed on this, though there are some oddities with the bootloader. Much information available on that subject on the internets.

    Awesome little box, this. Really snappy little thing, and almost silent. At full tilt, I had to get within a few inches to actually hear the fan.

    Intel NUC DN2820FYKH
    This is the Haswell Celeron NUC. Missing one of the screws; it broke off in the hole in the case. The remaining three hold it together well enough though, and if you want to use this in a mod it won't matter.

    3.5" SBC board with quad-core Bay Trail Celeron and a neat set of features. Dual gigabit NICs, SATA, mSATA/mPCIe, another mPCIe, GPIO, LVDS, and a passive heatsink.

    ECS LIVA

    Interesting little box, kind of a middle ground between ARM SBCs and the lower end NUCs. Same size as a lot of the SBCs, but a much more powerful Intel SoC and no GPIO.

    $10 for shipping within the US, $40 for shipping to Canada, other international, PM me and I'll run some calculations. Of course, if you want multiple of them, shipping will be consolidated (how much depends on what is purchased).

    I've got that book, too! Kinda dry reading, I find, a lot of basic comp-sci background/history stuff written elsewhere before.

    Can any of these little guys hold two PCIe cards? I've been thinking about making a munchkin HTPC box "DVR" with my InfiniTV 6 HD Tuner and C027 AVerTV HD DVR - plus a bunch of TeraBytes of SATA. All HD, all the time, packing bigass CPU and RAM would be well and good, but secondary to considerations of size, silence, efficiency, and cost. Such a puny and insignificant HTPC (for me) must be strikingly stylish yet invisibly unassuming, small in stature yet tall in power, narrow in purpose yet wide in vision.

    Are any of these wee beasties appropriate for this purpose?
    My mind says Technic, but my body says Duplo.

    Haha, I haven't gotten very far in it yet, actually; got sidetracked by other books with more pressingly useful content.

    None of these can take PCIe cards, sorry. In fact, the footprints of most of these hosts are probably about the same size as those cards. For size comparison, the motherboards in the three hosts with cases are four inches square.

    EDIT:
    Actually, I should say, the Jeyway board would sort of be able to accomodate those two cards if combined with adapters like this since it does have two miniPCIe slots (one half size, one full). Might let you get it all into a smaller form factor than you would otherwise be able to, though it would definitely require a custom-fab'd case. Not sure what the CPU requirements are on collecting those HD streams though.

    A miniPCIe riser, neat stuff.

    Thanx for pointing it out, but I guess I'll need to compromise with a beefier little toy. I'm stubbornly insistent that the whole thing fits within a single enclosure.

    Last chance, any takers before I put these on eBay?

    Also, I added an ECS LIVA at the end of the first post.
