What spec NUC do I need to run Kodi on windows 7/10 and play 1080p DTS etc ?
Do i need Celeron, i3 , i5 or i7?
I stream my content from a file share...

stevenz: The Celeron will struggle with some 1080p (and above) material. i3 or above will cope with anything you throw at it.
Trademe. There is one seller consistently offering them at $400, but others come up in the $220-$240 range. Brilliant Kodi machine with OpenELEC.
@nickrout - Where are you getting a Chromebox for $220 from? Best I can find is about $300 for the base Celeron model.
and MVC 3D and HEVC to 720p!
The Raspberry Pi2 will handle 1080p just fine, _as long_ as it's a codec supported by the hardware decoding (i.e. h.264). If it has to do it in software then it won't cope at all. Fantastic little devices.
