Shuttle XPC Nano Barebone NC01U Review
With the Celeron 3205U at its heart, the NC01U Nano Barebone can be used for office tasks, browsing and thanks to its very small footprint it is barely noticeable on the table; of course it can be also installed to the back side of the display thanks to the included VESA mount, which will also permit a cleaner cable management. The central processing unit is actively cooled by a blower-type ADDA fan while the fan profiles can be always adjusted from inside the BIOS. This is not all: besides the 7mm HDD/SSD we can mount on one of the PCB sides we also have the option to expand the storage via the available M.2 2242 slot. Shuttle has great plans for this little box since besides the fact that it is available with multiple CPUs (NC01U3 with Intel Core i3-5005U; NC01U5 with Intel Core i5-5200U; NC01U7 with Intel Core i7-5500U), it will provide expansion boxes for it which will fit inside the special connector on the back of the NUC (XVB01, XLB01 or XCB01).
