The size is correct by the Intel source documents I have. I am not sure why they did it that way. Perhaps it is because there is a change on the motherboard or another issue. I messaged Intel and asked about this, but they haven't replied to me yet.

The editors blew it a bit with this article. First, all through the text there is "NUC6i4SYH" which should have been NUC6i5SYH". Next the same dimensions are listed for the one with and without the 2.5"drive slot. This is not the case as photos of the boxes show different sizes. If you go to product brief PDF (http://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/public/us/en/documents/product-briefs/nuc-kit-nuc6i3syh-nuc6i3syk-brief.pdf) you can see the actual dimensions. The shorter one is 32mm and the taller is 48mm.

The Intel pages for these boxes has been out for nearly two months (http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/nuc/products-overview.html). And some are starting to show up in the listings at retail sites with the i5 version listing for about $400 (on Newegg) and the i3 version listing for about $300 (on Amazon). I've been waiting since these were announced in November for them to show up at retail so I can get a NUC6i5SYK (the short i5 one) to go on a desk at home and let my Broadwell i5 NUC go back to serving as a HTPC where it was borrowed from a couple of months ago.

Look at the product PDF file linked from the overview page.

Leaks over the past week have said that the Skull Canyon NUC with quad-core i7 and Iris Pro graphics will also have USB type C with Thunderbolt 3. BTW, the Skull Canyon NUC is apparently designated NUC6i7KYK.

For Skylake platform, all the features associated with USB-C is not integrated into the chip. It's actually a companion chip on the board that gives you HDMI 2.0 and Thunderbolt and USB 3.1 capability. With such a small device, including the companion chip may not have been feasible.

They could have given you a USB-C connector supporting only USB 3.0 speeds with no alternative modes or power delivery but that may just confuse customers down the line.
