It might sound like a funny name for a type of computer but the NUC is a game changer for small desktops and there are many applications.
The NUC is just 10cm x 10 cm in size, can have powerful current generation processors from Celeron to i5, run multiple high definition displays and deliver data incredibly fast via mSATA Solid State Drive (SSD) technology.
There are plenty of advantages and applications, from a desktop replacement, Home Theatre PC (HTPC), Point of Sale (POS) and kiosks, security and Digital Video Recorder (DVR), digital signage and custom all in one touch screens – you can mount it on the back of the display.

Are you unsure about what to choose for your next device?
With so many new products on the market it is easy to get confused. Let NAR Design and Intel help you through the maze with the following infographic:
NAR Design can help you choose what is right for your needs as well as supply, setup, configure and help train you on you new devices. These include Desktops, All-in-ones (AIO), small form factors such as NUCs, tablets, 2-in-1, Notebooks and Ultrabooks as well as a range of printers and networking products to compliment them.
Rob has been prolonging the life of his HP laptop for many years with fresh operating system installs and upgrading to faster solid state drives for storage – the latest being a 180GB Intel 335 Series SSD.
But after almost six years of daily use, the time had come to upgrade. The only question was which way to go?
It had to be fast and durable – the last HP laptop was turned on and off, opened and shut up to ten times a day over six years so there are big shoes to fill!
Battery life has improved so much in the last few years, working all day without a recharge is now an option.
Thin and light would also be nice as it is the main “tool of trade”, carried around everywhere to see clients for work including farms, wineries, medical practices and general offices around the Clare Valley.
The HP SpectreXT Ultrabook was the final choice with Intel i7 processor and 256GB SSD but there are also models with Intel i5 processor and 128GB SSD.
Meg has been working hard to develop her concept of The Journey Studio which currently provides art supplies to the Clare Valley.

Have a read of the newsletter and feel free to send it on to fellow artists.
Don’t forget that NAR Design offers free delivery on art supplies to your home or business in Clare.

NAR Design’s Country Business Mums is getting into the spirit of SALA (South Australian Living Artists Festival) by enjoying a day with Tracy Vandepeer from Venturas Visions Studio & Gallery in Auburn.
Tracy will take us on a tour of her gallery and the SALA exhibition and will discuss the importance of being creative in your life whether it be in an artistic way, doing the gardening or even writing a well-worded email.
To show how simple it can be Tracy will also create some artworks so we can see the magic happen.
We will also get to hear Tracy’s personal story of being a Country Business Mum and living with a disability.
This will be followed by networking and a delicious gourmet pub lunch with a glass of bubbles (or softdrink) on arrival at The Rising Sun Hotel, Auburn – recent winner of the Best Country Bistro award.
Friday 23rd August 2013 from 10am at Venturas Visions Studio & Gallery followed by lunch at The Rising Sun, Auburn ONLY $39.
RSVP by 16th August – 0433 205 661 – firstname.lastname@example.org

Why do we sell art supplies? It all comes down to Meg, her history and her passion.
The story so far…
Growing up in galleries and around artists meant that Meg and her family were always drawing, painting and creating and now with children of her own, Meg is passing on this passion.
Seeing the joy that art brings to others and with her blossoming family of artists it was time to return to her roots in the art world. The first step in this process is to source quality art supplies and make them available to our community.
With that step complete, NAR Design can offer a range of quality art supplies. Our supplier catalogues have been reworked into smaller groups to enable easier selection. Check out our Art Supplies page for more info and pricing.

The NBN (National Broadband Network) is a nation building project to provide a superfast broadband connection to all premises in Australia at an equitable cost.
When complete, 93% of Australian premises will have an optical fibre connection that allows a range of speeds and plans into the foreseeable future. The remaining 7% will connect via either fixed wireless or satellite but all users will have access to the same ongoing costs and plans.
There are great benefits to the nation to provide such a wholesale solution. Locally, the Clare region will see a vast improvement in both access costs and connection speed leading to benefits for business, education, health, agriculture and more.
NAR Design provides a range of services that will be impacted by the NBN and would like to help promote information on the rollout to our community. The NBN Roadshow will be in Clare on the 30th of July 2013 at the Clare Sports Centre providing information and answering questions on the NBN and the rollout. You can register here.
