The Bulgarian site is selling the units (without RAM and storage) for 
335 Bulgarian leva = 190 Euros,
which is very good indeed IFF one knows where to get one's hands on 
inexpensive RAM and mSATA storage.

However, a quick look for mSATA on Amazon makes me think that 256 GB 
mSATA storage will cost
about 190 Euros!!!!

However, 32 GB goes for 40 pounds = 50 Euros, and that would be quite 
enough to run one's OS and one
could store data in the sort of places I do (currently in an alarming 
array of external USB connected cases containing a
load of ill-assorted old PATA drives). Needless to say, my data solution 
spoils the portativity aspect of the NUC.

This makes me think of cheap inkjet printers: I bought an all-in-one, 
and my EFL school now spends twice
the price of the thing on ink cartridges each month.
