This is by far my most favourite computer, if only because it's both pocketable and upgradeable. It's made out of sleek aluminium with a glowing green led circle on top. It predates Intel's NUC initiative by a year. It has a dual core AMD E-450 which can handle a basic Windows 10 installation, and pretty impressive connectivity with a card reader, eSATA, lots of usb ports and hdmi. It has a single so-dimm memory slot and a single mSATA connector. I originally used Windows 7 with this, which I then upgraded to Windows 10 during the eligibility period. So technically, any installation of Windows 10 Home should automatically activate, but this is something I can't guarantee.

The bios is a little weird in that it does recognize UEFI boot devices but Windows will only install on MBR formatted disks and not GPT. It's been a few years since I last installed windows on this so I don't remember the exact process. But it is not straightforward. You'll need access to another computer. I've last used this with Proxmox and it ran fine. There is no provision for a 2.5" drive. I encourage you to read reviews about this. This was purchased from Amazon.com

I have some photos from back when I first fell in love with this that I'll attach at the end.
