Intel Sri Lanka will feature one of Intel’s groundbreaking products, the Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC), at the upcoming Colombo International Book Fair, which will be held until September 27, 2015.
The visitors can experience the simplicity and versatility of a fully-functioning personal computer that fits in the palm of hand at the stall of Genius Associates (Pvt.) Ltd, a partner of Intel Sri Lanka.
The Intel NUC comes in two forms: the board and the kit. It includes a highly customizable four-by-four-inch board that is ready to accept the memory, hard drive and operating system you choose to install. The four-by-four-inch Intel NUC board comes complete with a soldered-on processor. The board can be purchased independently of the kit, giving you the flexibility to choose the chassis that best suits your needs.
