    Hi

    What exactly do you mean? Something like the Rasberry Pi od these Media Center Mini PCs that you can order from China for about 80$?

    They both work as media centers. Ideally with XBMC. As pure Android devices, I don't find them very useful since I don't see any use for Android in any other device than a Smartphone or a Tablet.

    Best regards
    smithe

    Using Windows will not make more sense, since it uses way more resources and does not run on ARM platforms like these mini PCs.

    Linux will still be the way to go for these devices.

    Not that I disagree that linux is the way to go, Windows (RT) does run on ARM machines these days, but it probably requires more juice than Android.

    Intel NUC like DC3217BY is probably an order of magnitude more expensive ($300+) than the android sticks, but its fairly small, has HDMI out, usb in, and can fit 16GB of ram. Not to mention you can probably get your RIP running on intel unlike ARM.
