Thought folks might be interested in this. I like to take things apart. Sometimes, I even put them back together (a bunch of my Flickr albums are teardowns of various synthesizers)
I was able to pick up a PrimaLuceLabs Eagle 4 - the base model that runs for just about $1000 USD. I've picked this up to try it out because I like the combined solutions like this and the ASIAir, but want more flexibility in the software I run, and in the devices I connect to it.
Without having done any testing, but knowing a fair bit about Windows, the sweet spot to me seems that it would be the i3 version. (Eagle 4 S). But that's impossible to get right now, so I picked up the basic Eagle 4 with the Celeron processor and 4G memory. You can see a comparison table near the bottom of the page here:
Anyway, on to the photos.
(Larger photos are in my Flickr album here: https://www.flickr.c...157720056888824 )
There's a NUC in here, plus a companion board that does all the heavy lifting for the astro features.
This is the Intel page about this NUC:
This NUC, the NUC7CJYB, supports up to 8GB memory in two slots. I have not checked to see if PrimaLuceLabs limits max memory to 4GB in the BIOS or anything similar. But in terms of the NUC, you can bump to 8GB.
This is the matching memory to what was installed in my unit (I don't know if they mix and match, so you would need to check yours)
SSD. In theory, this is upgradable, but I wouldn't mess with that unless you know how to transfer disk images, and are comfortable finding (or, erm, making) an SSD with this same form factor.
I have no idea if there is a tamper switch in this. I'll find out when I go to power it up.
Edit: Oh, and I'm sure I voided all sorts of warranty here. I'm ok with that. If you open yours, do so at your own risk.
