The Intel NUC 13 Pro - i7 - 1360p
The Intel NUC 13 PRO is a very small mini PC with dimensions of 117 x 112 x 37 mm. We find as processor a Raptor Lake i7-1360p from Intel, accompanied, for our example, by 32 GB of DDR4-3200 Mt/s RAM and a 512 GB NVMe SSD.
We start with the unpacking of the device. This mini PC comes in a very well finished packaging with the colors of the brand. Inside we find the mini PC on the right and a notice on the left. Underneath, we have other documents as well as the charger and the screws for the VESA mounting. The VESA mount which is unfortunately not very usable on recent screens or even not usable with a screen arm. The box is big, so Intel, plan to add a remote VESA mount to the bundle…
Let’s talk about the charger which is a 120W power supply unit in 20V using a cylindrical connector that will have to be connected to the back of the NUC.
To begin with, the NUC 13 PRO is very compact in this version and weighs only 536g on the scale. The overall design is largely plastic with steel ventilation grills on the sides.
Then we have the connectors, we are here on a relatively complete solution. We have 2 USB type-A 3.2 gen 2 ports on the front and a 3.5mm jack. On the back, we have 2 Thunderbolt 4 ports, 2 HDMI 2.0b video outputs, 1 USB type-A 3.2 gen 2 port and 1 USB type-A 2.0 port. Regarding network connectivity, we have an RJ45 socket on Intel I225-LM chip and Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.3 via an Intel AX211 card inside. So we are here on a very complete solution, even if in use we would have liked more USB type A ports on the back (at least 4).
