I am looking for a new mini PC to act as my HTPC to enable me to retire an old Vaio laptop, but am struggling to align function with expectation....
I have been looking at a BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R which is pretty powerful and includes the Iris Pro graphics.
I generally only stream Netflix, MS office and I like to play Sins of a Solar Empire !!! What I really want is something that is quiet but will let me do most general stuff and be good for a few years, im not interested in playing Crysis and I have Blu-ray covered separately. I will be using Windows 8.1 and don't mind paying a little more if needed and normally just get the most powerful, but that sort of defeats the purpose for a HTPC I think
Any thoughts on the above spec or possibly something more realistic?
