Hello to all
Huge thanks for the reply
I know there are mini-PCs available with the option “no operating system installed”, which would quite nicely fit the bill, if you´re looking for something to install Linux on.
That info is very interesting. In what page did you see that option (bold part)? It is funny because I wrote through Twitter to Asus suggesting that option to its laptops. So if it is possible for MiniPcs it is great for me
But one has to be careful not to run into “barebones”, as they often enough will come without RAM as well.
What do you mean with
I don´t know if you´re looking for barebones, Manuel, or just any mini-PC, but I guess that´s an aspect worth keeping in mind.
My intention is buy a laptop for developing purposes - I am a Java/Spring developer. I have some preference for Asus because I have one. But a friend told me about
NUC … so after to did do a research I found the
Mini PC term. Therefore with a Mini-PC I can buy more RAM/CPU over a laptop with minor price. It is good for me. 16GB to 32GB.
I myself (for my personal scenario) would like to have all hardware components installed. Whether it comes without any OS would be a of secondary importance.
Agree, as summary a laptop or MiniPC without OS should be an option to buy in the web such as Amazon. Therefore I can install Linux in peace.
Ive used several beelinks for projects and they have worked out fine.
Pls, could you consider in share some models? Mostly about the CPU specs? Intel o AMD?
I have tried the Asus and when it works its great but any issues and their support will only talk in terms of Windows 10, etc. Very frustrating.
Interesting, I bought my Asus at 2016 and zero problems so far.
The Intel NUC I had the overall worst exp though when I got it working it did work out fine.
Can you share your experience?
Or not ?
That post was explicitly for NUC. Yes, I know there are other answer but perhaps other members of this forum did not participate there because the question was explicit about NUC. Now is about of all the branches.
Manuel - is this a general pc?
Other than browsing, email and normal spreadsheets,
what else would you do with it?
As mentioned before for developing. It should work with Docker SQL & NoSQL databases too.
Thanks for the video watching right now. BTW I watched many videos on YouTube. I wrote this post because I think is better a direct experience of you all.
Thanks to all !!!
