    My new Micro Barebone Intel NUC 6I5SYH

    I am more than satisfied with my Macbook Pro, but I am still quite fond of working with Linux. I saw a cheap opportunity, and assembled a nice micro barebone. Runs perfectly. The Intel NUC need only RAM and disk storage. I chose the NUC6I5SYH, thus it offers me to use a fast NAND storage for the OS (M.2 22x80) and a 1 TB Fusion drive for storage.

    My overall setup:
