This should be a no-brainer. When it comes to an SFF Computer, you need the peripherals: a monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse. Most keyboards and mice are either wireless or plug-and-play (meaning you can plug them into any USB port). When it comes to a monitor, makes sure that the monitor has an HDMI connection. If you happen to buy a monitor that has a DVI or a VGA connection, you will need to get a DVI to HDMI adapter, or a VGA to HDMI adapter. The computer geek who receives the gift of a NUC plus peripherals will definitely love the new tech you’ve given him or her.
