"Temporarily out of stock." but looks like its available for back order…
edit… and now you cant back order it any more.
good deal for those who could back order.
Wont let me buy it?
cant add to cart.
Damn missed it.
alright calm down ozbargainers, out of stock in 5 mins
Did you get one?
Yes, I did. I ordered sometime before posting to make sure it was not a price error. (Price looked too good to be true) Decided to post it today when I saw they updated with a delivery date.
@Turd: Too early to say haha! still just an order with an estimated delivery date at this stage
First I missed the phone, now this….
Simple solution. Save money and don't monitor OB. (Says me who's monitoring as I type!!)
Do bear in mind a few things:
Price is good (if this is not a pricing error)… Just realise this is more i5 U series CPU, rather than i7 U series in today's standard.
Only if you need more than 5 Gbps speed through the USB ports. Fine enough for SATA based portable SSD.
I have a heap of NUCs rackmounted in a cluster and this would have been a good upgrade. Oh well next time.
What do you use it for?
Currently experimenting with Hyper-V clusters. I've been working with Hyper-V for years, but the cluster side of it not so much so it's a good test bed for seeing how it all works.
Hyper-V on NUCs… either you want low power consumption or you really like the form factor.
@netsurfer: I have a stack of Intel NUCs that are identical models so it's good to do basic VMs with clustering. The important stuff runs off the more robust HPE server.
My guess is porn
Generating deepfakes needs a lot of power 😜
does this come with a hdd or ssd?
it comes with air. No m.2 storage device included. No RAM modules included.
says it comes with 32GB of RAM? Might not have a hdd though.
I think it meant it supports up to 32GB of RAM max.
Processor: 4.2 GHz apple_ci7
Wireless Type: 802.11a
Number of USB 2.0 Ports: 2
Number of USB 3.0 Ports: 5
3rd party seller I think.
@netsurfer: seller is amazon au and my order already has an estimated delivery date so unlikely to be a price error
@XanderYuan: There are obvious copy and paste errors and typos on the description.
Processor was meant to be: core_i7. Wireless type should be 802.11ac (not a, 802.11a is too ancient). Number of USB ports - I don't think you get 7 ports with this.
The price is not bad, but it is still Kaby Lake after all.
@netsurfer: That’s classic amazon au hahaha. Their descriptions for electronics are off.
@XanderYuan: Estimated delivery note is nothing. Not confirmed until you receive a dispatch notice with a tracking showing that it was handed over to the courier.
DaNG there goes my NAS idea.
Damn needed new blue iris setup
Wow so cheap!
But do you need it??
Wanted one for Plex
There is no price error with Amazon
They have in the past, and they offer $20 voucher in response!
Ah would have been a good upgrade for my i5 NUC… oh well next time
I use a i5 NUC for a HTPC
Same here, makes a neat and quiet machine…..
19V input, drat. I need a 12V one for mobile astrophotography work
You could be getting this for $250.47.
Celeron J3455 only
I think he was meaning it is a bit fishy that Amazon AU is listing a later gen i7 NUC model for the same price as the old gen Celeron J3455 model. Smells of pricing error.
damn, feel so bad missing this deal
Damn, always came to late. Needed this for my hackintosh.
wow awesome deal.
It was only an awesome deal if any one actually got any.
Was lucky enough to get this deal, would be an awesome comp for my parents to use
This or $850 for one shaped liked an Atari VCS
Makes me think that this could have been a pricing error. And they quickly pulled it from sale as soon as it was found out.
Reason being these go for around $800 elsewhere. https://staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/search.cgi?q=Intel+BLKNUC7I...
There's no way $250.47 was a legit price.
I think the system may have mixed up the price for this old model which is $250.47. But it a coincidence that Amazon AU would be listing an i7 NUC system at an old gen Celeron NUC price.
I wouldn't be surprised if you are receiving cancellation notices tomorrow.
In today's standard, the price seems possible (though it is a bit unusual from Intel). Even if Amazon honoured this, I am not sure Amazon can get more stock for the back-orders. I hope I am wrong and people who back-ordered would get theirs.
The closest deal to this from OZB is the MSI Cubi 5 10M (i5-10210U) https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/602149. After the cashback, it is roughly $300. The i5 CPU is comparable (a bit faster than this one). That has more USB ports. Slightly better wireless card (Wifi6) and an extra SATA3 port. With the 10th gen U series CPU, it supports more max RAM and slightly faster RAM. This Kaby Lake Refresh i7 U CPU supports DDR4-2400 only (but you will probably get DDR4-2666 SODIMM anyway, as it is probably hard to find DDR4-2400 SODIMM nowadays).
The thing to remember is that prior to 8th gen Intel CPUs, Intel did not really have any competition (from AMD). So from 8th gen onwards, the U series i5 CPUs have 4 cores / 8 threads. Just need to remember that this is basically i5 U series in today's standard.
As said above, the i7 is pretty much equivalent to i5-8250u, which is not a strong CPU. The CPU is also ancient and was released in 2017, which is ages ago. I've ordered this for more than a few days and have not received cancellation yet and instead have received the estimated delivery date.
The CPU I mentioned was i5-8259u, which is a true 8th gen U series CPU. It's a CPU generally used in some NUCs and 13 inch Macbook Pros. Let's also not forget the 8259u based NUC has all USB ports being USB 3.1 gen 2 ports (2x the bandwidth) + Thunderbolt 3 port.
OP, I get this is good value, but given you haven't received it and this is a fairly old NUC, it is fair that people are cynical about the availability of this. Also, it is worthwhile pointing out that this is technically a revised 7th gen CPU. Even Intel decided to name the product 7I7DNK4E.
Majority of people couldn't even backorder this. Also, Amazon US version of the page indicates Amazon US is unclear when it will be back in stock.
Comparing it to i5-8259u is a bad comparison since its TDP is 28w. Where as 8250u is a 15w cpu which is directly compatible to 8650u which is also 15w. And not surprisingly the 2 are nearly equivalent in terms of performance. In other words, it’s more appropriate to compare the two instead of 8259u
A CPU released four years ago is hardly ancient.
So any order cancellations or order dispatch notifications yet?.
I'll let you know when my order gets updated.
It should have been updated long before now. I don't think these orders were going any where considering that it's been nearly 2 weeks.
@hollykryten: That's right. Mine is still saying, "We will email you when we have an estimated delivery date."
@kampret: Yeah. Either there was no actual stock or there is no want to fulfill it at the price due to a pricing error. Still it shouldn't take this long to cancel orders and refund.
So no one reported actually receiving one of these computers?. This is now weeks after the fact.
Arriving 8 Jul - 16 Aug
Amazon hasn't dispatched my order yet.
I remember I had ordered a kids' toothbrush that was out of stock and it took Amazon 6 months to dispatch it, but it finally got dispatched. So I believe it will be shipped eventually.
