I've never used kodi but i've read a few reviews on Amazon etc.. for similar models that say it works pretty well.

yes but so is a raspberry Pi 3 for £30 or many other devices. You should really be looking to achieve more with this box.

For most things that people are likely to use it's ideal.

Doesn't Kodi expect all the media to be on the box eg local storage, whereas Plex uses Client/server, in which case this BOX with limited storage options might not make a good media server/player ?

No it works perfectly well with networked sources.

Will this do 4k for videos and general use? (not a gamer)

Cheap price for what you're getting and it looks like memory and storage drive upgrades should be no problem.

Not sure. Asus list their VivoPC VC62B as being 4K compatible rather than this one

The good thing about this little PC is it can take up to 16gb ram and you can add a couple of SSDs to it

Plex is generally better for viewing outside of your home network. I personally prefer Kodi for use at home.
I have a raspberry Pi 2, a Pi 3, a fire TV stick and a PC as Kodi players. All of the content is stored on a NAS and all play my content flawlessly. The Pi's are my preferred option as I run them off the tv's USB power. They auto boot (OpenELEC) in seconds when the TV is powered on. Both work using the standard TV remotes through hdmi (CEC).

what you can do with this is run Windows 10, then use it to remotely play Xbox One on a TV elsewhere. USB connect the controller into the Vivo box etc//

I can never get KODI to look like I want it eg with 4 rows of 6/8 thumbnails and the naming conventions on both)plex/kodi) are too unforgiving. imo.
