Hi, both are pretty powerful units.
Skull Canyon has 2 more cores and 45W TDP vs. 28W for the NUC7i7BNH
Check the specs comparison here: http://ark.intel.com/compare/89187,95065
I guess it really depends on what you want to achieve with the unit.
I have the Skull Canyon myself and use it mainly for virtualization and it's great at that.
