No shame at all with the Lenovo like name.
I prefer Soni over Cenovo, but Panasonik is the best!
I guess these would be good for running Kodi?

I was asking similar on another thread hotukdeals.com/dea…682
Looks decent enough
And yes it will run kodi like millions of other devices - even my very old (soon to be replaced) android 4.0.4 tv box runs Kodi - just that it takes ages to do anything but when it eventually does it's ok
The tech reviews of the Atom processor are reasonably good although not recommended for gaming:
Atom Z3735F
I looks a good bit of kit.

Whats kodi like as a Media player i have wd live and i love it and brings up the information for each film.
Cenovo you say? http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lurl43Bk3O1qg0rnuo1_500.jpg

£54.80 for me via PayPal. Thanks OP.
As this has Bluetooth included, I'm hoping I can hook this up with it.

It runs Windows 8.1 and therefore it will run KLite codec pack or CCCP and singularly any codec that can be installed on Windows.

The answer to your question is almost yes, as this platform doesn't support 4K and also H.265 playback can't be played at any respectable framerate (Unsurprising as most stuff can't play it).

If you want the really really technical answer then read this >

Pros:
Great mini pc. Easily upgraded to windows 10 using Windows upgrade tool. " Windows Media Creation tool windows 10 32bit version"

When you do this its best to pick the option "save no apps" this gives you a full clean version of Windows 10

2-3 days (Yodel, unfortunately!)
This might be coming all the way from China guys along with import duty & VAT.
Would it be good enough to use it as a plex server? Or what would you recommend for this?
Any keyboard recommendations for it?
why am i tempted.....
