The Intel Skull Canyon NUC is the most powerful member of Intel’s NUC line of compact desktops to date. It’s a desktop PC that measures about 8.5″ x 4.6″ x 0.9″ and which features an Intel Core i7-6770HQ quad-core processor and Iris Pro 580 graphics.

The system has Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.0, as well as 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2.

What it doesn’t have is RAM, storage, or an operating system: you’ll have to supply your own. And that could make the Skull Canyon PC’s $650 price tag seem a bit steep.

The good news is that Newegg is currently running a sale on Intel NUC and Compute Stick systems. Use the coupon code EMCENFJ76, and you can knock 20% off the price of select models… including the Skull Canyon NUC.
