    It doesn't appear to have a dedicated graphics card, won't be able to play many games.
    It also has only one video output port (HDMI)

        Ah ok, that's a decent selection for the form factor

        •  

          Also, consider that some modern monitors have display port out to daisy chain a second monitor and also act as a basic docking station with video, USB and audio send over a single USB-C cable. It makes for a neat setup.

    Looks pretty good according to staticice.

    no monitor.

    Considering people went wild over the similar NUC8I5BEH3 for $379, this is a pretty good deal if you don't have the RAM and SSD yet.

    Intel Xe graphics are an improvement over the older generations, but they're still not great. Fine if you're playing older games or eSports games and run at lower res/lower settings.

      It will do almost everything, except modern games… that's the way to look at it.

      Still "not great"? I'd downgrade that and say they're "not good". Decent is the term that comes to mind, and that goes equal for AMD and their ageing Vega iGPU. The older Intel Iris iGPU would be classed as passable, whilst AMD scores even lower for not even having an iGPU.

      Should note, that only Apple offers good performance iGPU in the new M1 Silicon. And it really won't take much from AMD to match/surpass them by using a better RDNA-2 iGPU… if they choose to do so.

    looks like price error, try your luck.

    Looks like a good deal to me. There are plenty of videos on YouTube showing what you can expect for gaming with the I5 1135G7. This has an I5-1135G7 doesn't it?

    •  

      For the best gaming results, change the ram to dual channel 3200.

    Thanks for the input. Would this be all good to go as it is or do I need to get some extra parts? I saw mention it doesn't have a graphics card?

    Also does it have wifi connection? Cheers.

      Did you end up buying it?

  •  

    It's got integrated graphics and integrated wireless.

    "Windows 10 Home 64-bit OEM DVD" - looks like you will have to install W10 yourself. I could be wrong?

      This package included installation and test, so I assume the Windows 10 will be installed. The media is for you to reinstall the system.

    PRICING ERROR

    Price now $859

    •  

      Yeah tried to buy it this morning got order cancelled.
      Is it still a good price at 859 ?

  •  

    Not really. Mediocre value. You can get the barebones kit for $489 so that's $370 for W10 Home, 500GB NVMe, 1X16GB RAM and a power cable.

  •  

    I purchased it and it was verified and confirmed ready to ship then got cancelled due to price error. Do i have a leg to stand on to try and honour the price?

    •  

      I doubt it. If there was no legal out for pricing errors businesses could be bankrupted by one missing number.

  •  

    And now they've raised the price to $1,029.00. Are they after the drunk impulse purchase market?
