The i7-8559U is a very impressive chip.  Coming from an i7-4765T everything feels so much snappier.  From 4K videos to Overwatch in 1080p, the 28W Coffee Lake processor handles just about everything we throw at it.  The Turing is a fantastic offering from Akasa.  We were clamoring for a vertical case for what feels like forever.  It’s not entirely perfect but the Turing/Bean Canyon NUC combo is amazing as a Roon server, a Kodi HTPC, a Steam machine, or just as a unique (and totally silent) desktop PC.
