Z83-W Fanless Mini PC Desktop, Windows 10 64-bit Intel x5-Z8350 (Up To 1.92 GHz)

Jump to solution

What's going on with Intel's support for this device? I can't find ANY support at all using Intel Search.

Hey guys! Amazon has this ranked as the # 1 Best Seller for Mini PC. So I know your selling a ton of them.

So, Where's the Beef? (Support?)

It is not an Intel product.

And, rankings on the net (and amazon) are easily faked.

That explains a lot. Does Intel have something similar?

Thanks for your answer.

I have this one: https://ark.intel.com/products/128753/Intel-NUC-7-Enthusiast-a-Mini-PC-with-Windows-10---NUC7i7BNKQ Intel® NUC 7 Enthusiast, a Mini PC with Windows® 10 - NUC7i7BNKQ Product Specifications

It is a very nice product (this rating from an actual live human)

Thanks.

Actually, I was looking for nothing more than an inexpensive thin client, and the low price of the other product was great.

I'd just rather have something for about the same price ($120) from Intel.

Thanks anyway.

Most of the NUCs come as Kits where you have to add storage and memory yourself. There are a few system-level NUC products that fit the bill, however (and they have better processors that the Z83-W):

US$230: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Canyon-BOXNUC5PGYH0AJR-Desktop-Graphics/dp/B015RA5DDQ Intel NUC5PGYH System with 5th Gen Intel Pentium Processor and Windows 10 Home (Amazon.com)

US$230: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-BOXNUC6CAYSAJR-NUC-Kit-NUC6CAYS/dp/B01MXYZ8V5 Intel NUC6CAYS System with 6th Gen Intel Celeron Processor and Windows 10 Home (Amazon.com)

Intel is in the process of releasing this as well (no pricing information as yet, unfortunately):

US$xxx: Intel NUC7CJYS System with 7th Gen Intel Celeron Processor and Windows 10 Home

Another thing to consider is a Compute Stick, which plugs into one of the HDMI ports on your TV (you just need wireless keyboard and mouse to talk to it). Intel has one in your price range:

US$125: https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Compute-Computer-Processor-BOXSTK1AW32SC/dp/B01AZC4NHS Intel Compute Stick CS125 Computer with Intel Atom Processor and Windows 10 Home (Amazon.com) https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Compute-Computer-processor-BOXSTK1AW32SCR/dp/B01ASB0DJ8 https://www.amazon.com/Intel-Compute-Computer-processor-BOXSTK1AW32SCR/dp/B01ASB0DJ8

There are also some 3rd-party clones of this compute stick in the same price range (but poorer quality, IMHO)

Hope this helps,
