    Intel's pocket-sized prodigy, NUC (next unit of computing), made waves since 2012, when it launched as a full-fledged desktop system, based on Core "Ivy Bridge" platform. The industry has since been looking forward to second-generation NUC, which runs the company's latest Core "Haswell" processors. One such fun-size powerhouse was spotted at PAX Prime. Labelled Intel D54250WYK, the kit runs a Core i5-4250U dual-core processor (1.30 GHz clocks, 2.60 GHz Turbo Boost, 3 MB L3 cache, HD Graphics 5000, 15W TDP). The reference-design enclosure is smaller in size than its predecessor, measuring 116.6 mm x 112 mm x 34.5 mm, compared to the original's 116.5 mm x 112 mm x 39.3 mm. Connectivity on the device include a single 3.5 mm headset jack, four USB 3.0 ports, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, and mini-DisplayPort (both of which give out 7.1-channel digital audio). Wireless connectivity options could include anything from 802.11 b/g/n (or even 802.11 ac), Bluetooth 4.0. Intel could detail, or perhaps even launch, its next-generation NUC at IDF San Francisco.

    Iris Pro?

    Intel could use this new NUC generation to:

    1: Lower prices (i´ve dream a dream...).

    2: Offer the Iris Pro graphics (HD 5200) and show to desktop users what it can offer...

    YES! hd 5000 in something that is not a macbook. any possibility of one of these using the 28 watt iris or 47 watt iris pro chips, if they could handle the tdp?

    Low power AND low cost plz, then maybe people with half a brain might actually consider it as a worthwhile investment for HTPC. But if they go for a retarded price point, I dont see this selling well at all except in PC World.

    the current ones go for about $299. now, intel sells a single i5 4250u for $342. i dont know if intel would sell an entire machine for $300 with one of these chips in it, but they might.

    This. However, given that the 4250U costs upwards of $300, I doubt it will be cheap. Also, moar USB ports

    It would be cool if someone made a NUC enclosure with a PSU built in.

    Yeah these are good for a low power server too e.g. in a homelab.

    I've been waiting for these and hope they release one with HD 5200 graphics, but, yes, they will probably be too expensive.
