Ace Computers' Announces its New NUC Micro Desktops for Schools

ADDISON, Ill., Jan 24, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- What if schools could convert their computer labs into much-needed classroom space, be nearly immune to technology theft and save money in the process Ace Computers' tiny, but powerful Vision Pico NUC micro desktops promise just that and much more for a price that leaves laptops in the dust. The basic palm-sized device includes a motherboard, processor and case, but no memory, storage or operating system. Custom upgrades are nearly limitless.


Ace Computers' new Vision Pico is based on Intel's cutting-edge Next Unit of Computing (NUC) technology. The NUC features an Intel Core i3 processor in a highly customizable package. Like all Intel mobile CPUs it uses the full Intel HD 4000 GPU. The benefits to schools include: Less Need for a Computer Lab: Since the Vision Pico NUC is both highly portable and can be unobtrusively installed on an individual desk--it seamlessly brings computing power into the classroom.

Less Vulnerability to Theft: The NUC can be bolted in place (for example the underside of a desk).

Smaller Footprint: At roughly 4.6 by 4.4 by 1.5 inches these devices free up precious surface space.

Significantly Less Energy Draw: The entire system consumes less than 50W of power. This means "always on" is not a problem.

Rugged: The tough case and quality components make this device hard to damage.

Lower Price: When compared with a laptop...the Vision Pico NUC with either a touchscreen monitor or monitor and keyboard, still comes out ahead.

John Samborski, Ace Computers' CEO said, "Our long-term partnership with Intel is a major reason that we stay on the cutting-edge. The Vision Pico NUC is a great example. We saw the possibilities and benefits to schools immediately and used our expertise to develop custom NUCs that will maximize benefits for our clients." Typical Vision Pico NUC specs include: Processor: Intel(R) Core i3-3217U (soldered down) Chipset: Intel QS77 Express Chipset Memory: Dual channel SODIMM DDR3 1066/1333 MHz; 2 SODIMM, 16GB maximum Graphics: Dual HDMI Expandability: 2 x PCIe mini slots (1x half-length & 1x full/half-length); 2 x Internal USB 2.0 via 2x5 header; 2 x USB 2.0 connectors on back panel; 1 x USB 2.0 connector on the front panel Connectivity: Intel 10 / 100 / 1000 Network Connection Additional Features: Windows 7 and Windows 8 logo; wireless option via mini PCIe card; Bluetooth option via mini PCIe card; supports new mobile SATA (SSD) card via full-length PCIe mini card; compatible with Linux (Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE); 19V DC power input (external power supply) While there are no analog audio connectors, audio output can be routed through an HDMI port.
