I know it is near impossible for it to be silent. But, I don't think this project will be stressed much. It will be used for surfing, watching netflix/1080p video (4k capabilities would be nice). Is the Nuc Bean Canyon sufficient? Does it matter whether it's the 8i3BEH or 815BEH? I looked at Dell, Lenovo and HP offerings but they were more expensive for what you get? The Dell sounded like the nvme only went to x2 speeds, too? Anyway, I compared to an itx build, like i3-8100 or 2200g and I was advised that a typical itx build would be louder? Agreed or no? The only concern I have for the nuc is whether the fan inside gets really loud. Also, you have to buy laptop ram but fortunately, that's not very expensive. I already have a SSD 1tb. But, I think I should get a NVMe disk as well. I will use Windows 10 and Linux. Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions.
