Little Big PC
The next big thing in classroom technology could just be one of the smallest computers around. Intel's NUC, which stands for Next Unit of Computing, is on the verge of becoming available and could change the way we think of desktop PCs. At 4- by 4-inches, these micro computers have all of the power of a full desktop, yet include HDMI, USB and Thunderbolt connections and room for plenty of RAM. The best part is that they will have VESA mounting screws for attaching to the back of a monitor. When they come out later this year, these NUC devices could cost about $400.
