A few years back I had purchased an Intel NUC, a mini PC that allows you to save the workspace and mount the system at the back of a monitor which works very very well. One neat piece of hardware.
But one drawback with this unit is the CPU processor which didn’t really care much because at first, I was using it to do some web developing, little graphic here and there which it didn’t need to much power for the stuff I mainly do every day, but at the end, I should have bought something little powerful rather than the one I currently have.
- Dual Core
- 8GB of RAM
- 2TB Hard Drive
So what I have been doing with this unit now. Well, since the beginning, I was just using it as a regular desktop but in the end, as the years went by and it is getting a little slow, I decided to turn the unit into a server and use it for a file server and docker which doesn’t take much. This way, it allows me to continue to use the unit for other productive reasons.
