Got a friend who has (or maybe had) a decent HTPC setup, but appears the motherboard has died - due to age, I cant get them a replacement board so looking at options to replace it....


All they want to be able to do is play videos (usually around 720 I think), browse, and use Spotify.


They do have a 5.1 amp etc as well.


So was thinking an Intel Compute stick might suit them rather than going full hog on buying new board, CPU, RAM.


So, Stick or HTPC ?


If stick, which one ? :)
