Tech Wizards at The Lake carries two options for the eleventh generation NUC.

  • Both are practically the same machine and sell for the same price.
  • The NUC11PAHi7 (Panther Canyon) was originally supposed to be sold in Asia and Europe alone. While the Tiger Canyon was meant for North American Countries
  • But when the shipping fiasco occurred in 2022 the Tiger Canyon was stuck out on the ocean.
  • In the mean time, a few resourceful vendors started flying to Europe and other places to get the Panther Canyon
  • We had placed orders for each model and therefore ended up with a bunch of both

We LOVE the clean and balanced lines of the Tiger Canyon!


You can run all your cables off the back of the computer and still have room for peripherals on the front. There’s no need to get a mini DisplayPort cable, just a USB-C adapter cord.


there’s also no difference in price and no need to worry about either of the machines performing in a less than stellar manner.
