This review is from: Intel BOXD54250WYK1 Intel QS77 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 5000 NUC Kit
Pros: Possibly the most awesome purpose built desktop environment I've seen. I'm very big into smaller is better and this guy is actually velcro'ed to the back of my monitor. For desktop users, this is entirely what they would need for day to day productivity or personal use. The lack of unneeded ports and therefore the overall efficiency of design strikes the perfect balance for most uses.
Cons: I would naturally want to deploy these as desktops within a larger environment, but the barebones nature of it being a kit would make my assembly time more difficult than I would like.
Other Thoughts: This would be a great opportunity for an integrator to build and configure these machines so users could self-install.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HP NW280AA#ABA
Pros: A nice stepwise improvement over prior models.
Cons: Misses the mark in capturing the level of sophistication available given current technology.
Other Thoughts: The idea of a calculator is somewhat outdated but will certainly resonate with students who need intentionally limited functionality during exams. It is somewhat hard to imagine this being part of what I would travel with outside of the classroom environment.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent fit for purpose. Works well with my MBP Yosemite at 3840x2160@60Hz under Display Port. Happy with the IPS panel color over older TN panels.
Cons: It has a USB hub on the back, but its unclear why it wasn't extended to the side for more usability.
Other Thoughts: For my desk, this monitor came off the arm and went onto a VESA mount right away, so I can't comment on the usability of the stand. It didn't look as impressive in terms of its ergonomic adjustment ability.READ FULL REVIEW
