    Are you saying Compulab allows you to set the configurable TDP target or are you just giving some background info about the CPU?

    Also, anyone know of cheaper fanless mini-PC alternatives with similar performance if I don't need the industrial ruggedness? I want a fanless mini-PC but it'll just be sitting at the corner of my desk. Not really a harsh environment.

    Out of curiosity, what NUC are you planning on ordering?

    Heh, as long as the minipcie slot has usb lines too (most modems are using usb, not pcie because of obvious reasons), you can use a flex-cable adapter like this https://techship.com/products/sim-ca...press-modules/
    to add the sim slot.
    The contact part must be wrapped around the smaller part of the minipcie connector, as it needs to pipe the SIM electrical connection into that part, and you're good to go.

    For the average "minipcie" (actually USB) modem card you can also use "usb to minipcie" (actually still providing just USB lines + power) adapters with sim card slot like these (or a random chinese clone) http://eshop.sintech.cn/mini-pcie-3g...-s-p-1030.html

    And then you can add a half-serious modem to whatever has a usb port.

    I bought an Airtop-PC in part on the strength of your earlier articles. It's a SWEET desktop for someone who does a modest amount of Adobe work. It handles vMix live video production software with ease. I added a mPCIe USB 3.1C interface, breaking the port out to the front panel. I wish that the optional USB 3.0 FACE module worked in the Airtop. It adds another mPCIe slot as well as 2 front USB 3 ports, but it only works in the IPCs.
