    RE: miniPC wout ARM
    Yes. Thanks! I looking into both. It seems that Intel NUC is more ready-for-use. However, I need to add RAM, wifi and SATA-SSD but it still not expencive. This can be really great if this unit is conn to a TV-set and I use a wireless keyb/mouse. Of course, I can buy a used laptop, but I think this is better. A laptop will be taken...Not this NUC. More, older laptops doesn't have HDMI. Later, you config the computer for different users and depending on situation, you use suitable config. This is a fun project.

    miniPC wout ARM
    Hello, Perhaps not right place for this question. I must ask you if anyone knows any miniPC hardware that is NOT based on ARM processors? You perhaps know about [url=http://www.hardkernel.com/main/products/prdt_info.php?g_code=G138733896281&tab_idx=1]Odroid[/url]? They use ARM Vx processors. I want a miniPC BUT not with ARM. Why? Some nice applications don't work with ARM such as Netflix and Skype. I want Linux...not only for Netflix/Skype. Also because the config going to be more flexible. [b]miniPC[/b] for me is low cost, HDMI out, some USB-ports, small sized, flashmemory and with Linux. ! At last, I'm rather new to Linux and miniPC and can make many mistakes so have patient with me.
