    Are there any NUC style PCs with dual NICs?

    I've been looking around everywhere and can't find what I'm looking for. Ideally it would be a small compact PC like Intel NUCs with a built in mobile CPU (i3/i5) and at least 2 Intel NICs. The few that I found have Realtek which I'd rather not use for pfSense. Is there anything else...

    D620 docked, two monitors, can laptop be used as third?

    Not possible. Hardware can't handle it. Driver won't let you. You need a USB video card, or an advanced docking station with a PCI video card.
