    Yeap... I'm not a fan but it depends on what you want to use it for.

    Most of the MC/NC, Interplay, Nexis, ISIS, Unity stuff. [view my complete system specs]

    it is what it is.

     

    current consumer Intel cpu with onboard graphics, quadro optional.

    wheter its intel NUC or HP branded doesn't make a difference

     

    i'd use it as an office node, not as a workstation.

    a "test" video:

    Seems like it would do the job in a lowres-multicam production? And even HD (dnx120)

     

    But that depends on what you are used to of course. I assume that this machine is faster than a z240? I see z240 as suitable for many situations..

    have always been an HP fan. Is there maybe any reason to look att the others? Dell, Lenovo? Who gives most bang for the buck?

    you can look at the others.

    i recon most will be almost identical, also pricing wise.

    deciding by looks & gut migth be a good solution.
