    what about a steam box ??


    what about a steam box ??

    Again, won't run the majority of games because it's not running Windows.

    Many of the companies that make the steam box machines offer the same hardware running windows though, like an Alienware Alpha or Zotac ERX480.

    Generally MiniPCs are a niche at the moment though which means you pay more for the same performance. A bog standard tower PC will be cheaper.

    Why don't you just buy Xbox one s. Cheap and cheerful. Supports all TV apps and no tinkering needed. Just works.

    How much you willing to spend on it , there's options , cheap and expensive
