A home entertainment system is often a major priority for many homeowners, and for many such processes, the right equipment involves a central computing device that allows for control and tweaking of the setup. And whether you’re designing a home theater, a gaming setup, or any other kind of entertainment center, there are several reasons you should strongly consider a mini computer for your controlling needs. 

At Simply NUC, we’re proud to offer numerous NUC and mini computer options, including laptops, fully configured solutions, and much more. Why should a mini PC option be among your first considerations for the controlling device for any home entertainment system you’re considering installing? There are several reasons, which we’ll go over here.

Maximizing Space

Within many home entertainment systems, space comes at a premium. Between wires, boxes and other large items, those creating an expansive home entertainment system will regularly be looking for ways to save space while still including all the components and controls they need.

A mini computer is a great tool here, functioning as a small, but powerful option.  Both smaller and lighter than traditional laptop or desktop setups, mini PCs are easier to move around or hide away in situations where you don’t want them to be visible. This helps with everything from aesthetics to convenience for your setup, allowing for perfect control without the ugliness and inconvenience of a bulkier computer.

High Performance, Limited Power Needs

As we noted above, despite their size, mini PCs are incredibly powerful devices. Each of our mini computers can pack a huge amount of power into a small space, but do so while also limiting the amount of electricity that’s used up during their operation – which, in turn, saves you money on your utility bill at the end of each month. 

For those who game often or use their entertainment center a ton, you’ll know how quickly electrical costs can add up. Not only will our products save you money, they’re easy to install and will provide the kind of speed and power you need to coordinate several entertainment elements at once.

Customization Capabilities

Every homeowner wants their entertainment system to be unique, and with the ability to fully customize your mini PC on our site, you’re able to pick the exact features you want. From allowing you to pre-load your desired operating system to various configurations in terms of accessories, storage, and RAM. This makes customizing any element of the entertainment system even simpler in several ways.
