Hi all,

Wondering if you all can help me decide on an ultra small pc to be used mainly as a media pc with xbmc or something on it, with light to intermittent normal pc use.

Definitely needs to be capable of 1080p, with gigabit LAN, bluetooth and a real plus would be card reader (mainly normal sized SD for photos)

I started off looking at the Lenovo Q190 that seemed to have everything I needed... Even optical out which was a bonus, but it was ultimately a bit too big, and as far as I could see... Didn't have an i3 variant.

Ended up looking at the gigabyte brix and intel NUCs, they both look pretty slick and compact enough to fit under my telly in between stuff. Which out of these two should one go for? (2x USB vs 4x USB etc etc)

Many thanks in advance!

Totally forgot =P

£150 would be great but unlikely to have/do what I want... So I hope around the £200 mark, absolute max £230 for the bare bones. RAM etc will be added later.

I already have a spare 2.5" SSD, but have no trouble picking up a mSATA SSD.

Thanks!
