No CPU or GPU is good enough for Bitcoin mining.
Your mileage may vary for altcoin mining.

Move your topic to the mining section.

You can mine with any cpu Smiley the problem is, is not worth it, its never going to be profitable....
Don't waste your time and your money...
Even if you mining with that mini Intel NUC computer, the cpu never going to get the proper cooling, your cpu going to be overheated as another components in that small case. When you cpu mining, your cpu is working on 100%, those NUC's are not designed for a 24/7, 100% cpu usage ...
That small case computer is close to 1300$ in your country....

Definitely, NOT! This is a multimedia PC, connected to your television to play movies, youtube and so on, something like a Smart TV converter. It doesn't have a GPU nor it can handle one in such a small case it has. You need a full-sized desktop PC in order to mine, ideally with a lot of slots for GPUs. This thing is extremely overpriced, the only decent thing on it is the CPU and the SSD, you don't need any of those for mining, you simply need some decent GPUs.

Moreover, it's one of the worst periods to buy a mining rig, I could potentially help you with the parts, but if I were you, I'd wait some time before taking any action. Profitability is at its lowest right now.

Really bad idea start mining with this device. This much better:

Still not for mining, but at least for same price more suitable for newbie.
