WPG, the Taiwan based largest electronics distributor in Asia, has partnered with Intel and Microsoft to launch NuPC in India today. NuPC is one of the smallest form factor PCs and combines affordability with infinite customization, powered by Intel processors running Windows 8.1 with Bing.


The NuPC is an energy efficient, fully functional PC that fulfils the performance needs of average consumers but fits in the palm of your hand. It takes up a roughly 4x4-inch footprint on a desk and is just 35m thick.

The NuPC is available in two variants. The Intel Core i3 processor one is available for ₹29,999 for the 2GB memory and 500 GB storage option ₹32,999 for the 4GB memory and 1 TB option. The Intel Celeron processor variant is available for ₹18,990 for the 2GB memory and 500 GB storage option and ₹21,990 for the 4GB memory and 1 TB option.

True ^^

Intel NUC are being rebranded and sold

Its better to assemble a AM1 PC from Scratch

Cheaper & having Same Performance (Almost)

What up with the ridiculous price?
33k for i3 and 22k for Celeron cube made in India!

Wow, I don't know about others. But, this is enough to kill make in India initiative.
The company however got it right. It wants to play with the idea of made in India and charge ridiculous prices from Indians. While Indians would feel good about it as they helped the cause. Win-2 for both.

I would stay clear of these crap and rather buy other better config product at much lower price.

No, these don't seem to be priced that outrageously,it might be somewhat here and there though(we will know when the full specifications are known).
Comparison of barebone units with these won't be appropriate. There are lot of SFF boxes by different companies with lower specs and higher price than this..and many with comparable price as these ones with respect to their specifications. SFF(portability) units comes with some price factor to it.

WPG has already leased a manufacturing facility in Parwanoo, Himachal Pradesh, and is looking for another one in Chennai, said Rajeev Bajpai, president of WPG C&C Computers and Peripherals (India) Pvt. Ltd. NuPC will cost between 50,000, Bhalla said

Anyway at this point we don't know the exact system specs of those units(which gen processor) also it is not known what is being made here or is it assembling.How worthy these units are would only be known when full specs would be revealed and at the time when they would be selling actually.

Under 9k you can only find a barebone system at present,there would be no RAM,HDD and Windows based OS(important for those who prefer Windows). Just add the cost of 2GB DDR3L RAM,500GB 2.5" HDD and lowest version of windows 8/8.1 that can be purchased by an individual,and it becomes clear.

Mate,I think it would be unfair to compare with US prices. :)

Amazon.in: Buy ASUS VivoPC-VM40B-02 Desktop Online at Low Prices in India | Asus Reviews & Ratings ~32990

ASUS VM40B-S025K VivoPC (Intel Celeron 1007U 1.5GHz, 500GB, 2GB DDR3, USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA, Card Reader, 2x 2W Speakers, Windows 8): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories ~260 Pounds

Somewhat modified version(2GB RAM) of that model is being sold by a seller at flipkart at 21.3k.

Anyway we should wait to see what are the exact specs of this NuPC and the price it is sold at to see where it stands in comparison to other SFF units as such.

At that price point(Rs.32k) better or still best to buy an AMD-8 APU based laptop.

First link is again a barebone(without RAM,HDD and Windows based OS).
The unit in second link has no Windows based OS and storage is 32GB as compared to 500GB.Also we don't know which Celeron processor is used in the WPG Nupc.
If it is a Haswell based Celeron(which has been used in some other models) then it would be faster than bay-trail based Celeron n2808 and also with much better graphics performance.

still there wont be much difference in real world performance
also you can purchase more storage,ram etc for the links I posted and you would still get a better and cheaper deal than the Nupc
OR
you could even build an HTPC(larger casing but more flexible and you do get small cases now)
OR
Buy a windows tablet (iball,hp etc) + a 1tb hdd

Well,that's a different case and performance issue is subjective to individuals plus higher performing SKUs do cost more
But for those who use Windows(which is most people and businesses) they can't get it much cheaper.
The cheapest version on Windows 8.1 that an individual can buy(Windows 8.1 Bing is OEM only) along with storage and RAM would exceed those costs.
Building HTPC or buying a barebone SFF or laptop/tablet is an individual preference and a different issue.

The point is that these NuPC units don't seem to be that badly priced as some misinformed posts and apple to oranges comparison did make it out to be.
There are lot of SFFs out there in various online stores and a comparison can be made.Even few posts earlier a comparison was made with another model.
And one will find a lot of units with similar prices for the specs they offer or sometimes relatively quite higher...
Prices can be bit here and there but these(NuPC) are certainly not outrageously priced if a comparison is made now.
The comparison of these SFF units is with other such SFF units..and this one is particularly targeted at Windows preferring audiences and businesses.
