So I took the plunge and finally went ahead and purchased A Intel (NUC) - Next Unit of Computing.'
Purchase the Intel NUC i7 Skull Canyon Barebones Kit. (BOXNUC6I7KYK4)
You've got a purchase your own Storage and Memory. So for that I chose.
SSD, Intel 600p 1TB M.2 (SSDPEKKW010T7X1)
RAM, 2x Kingston ValueRAM 16GB DDR4 SODIMM 2133MHz (KVR21S15D8/16)
The computer and the storage is on its way unfortunately tried to get the memory from MSY yesterday and apparently they are out of stock so trying to source another supplier but its highly unlikely I'll have memory for the computer when it arrives in a weeks time.
A shitload cheaper than the Mac Mini would've been and got so so much more.
