Essential means necessary, indispensable or unavoidable. Just what PCs have become.

Essential is also the name of key members of Intel’s NUC family of mini PCs, kits and boards.

The Intel NUC 11 Essential, just announced, offers your customers an everyday solution for kiosks, digital signage, small and midsize business (SMB) applications and embedded compute.

Another member of the Essential family is the Intel NUC 7 Essential. Introduced in 2021, it offers your value-oriented customers basic PC functionality at an affordable price.

Intel NUC 11 Essential

Intel NUC 11 Essential Mini PCs, kits and boards are cost-efficient solutions for kiosks and digital signage, web-based applications for SMBs, and embedded iCafe workloads.

This Mini PC can also be embedded inside furniture, a sales rack or security enclosure. The Intel NUC 11 Essential comes with the 9-pin front panel header for these use cases, and it’s available in all SKUs.

Under the hood, you’ll find the latest Intel Pentium Silver or Celeron processor. Plus, up to 32GB of dual-channel memory and the option to add 64GB of eMMC memory. Intel UHD graphics support up to two 4K displays for flexibility in digital signage and other deployments.

When it comes to the OS, you can run these Mini PCs on your choice of Windows 11, Windows 10 or Linux.

The Intel NUC 11 Essential Mini PC is slim and small. The box measures just 5.3 x 4.5 x 1.4 inches (135 x 115 x 36 mm).

And it’s designed to be easy and flexible to deploy. That means a simplified design, multiple built-in mounting options, both HDMI and DP++ video ports, and no fewer than 6 USB connections.

Plus, it’s all backed by Intel’s 3-year warranty. Nice.

Intel NUC 7 Essential

The Intel NUC 7 Essential is designed for home consumers and small businesses looking for low-cost, everyday functionality on a Mini PC.

It’s small, and it’s affordable. The chassis measures just 4 inches square. And retail prices start below $200.

The Intel NUC 7 Essential Mini PC is powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron processor. The Mini PC also carries dual 4K ports with Intel HD Graphics, so your customers attach a pair of 4K displays for crisp images and text.

The Intel NUC 7 Essential Mini PC also comes with 4GB of DDR4 memory, 32GB of flash storage, and Windows 10 pre-installed. Right out of the box, it’s ready to run.

The fully customizable kits — there are 2 — are built with a quad-core Intel Pentium Silver processor. The Intel NUC 7 Essential kits also offer Intel HD Graphics 600 and your choice of OS, memory and storage.

Like the Intel NUC 11 Essential, the Intel NUC 7 Essential line is backed by Intel’s 3-year warranty. You could say that’s essential.
