Found this today... Anyone have any input on it? Was going to get an android box thats a little more beefy then my ouya. Just trying to find something a little more snappy. When im at work and use kodi on the PC i notice big time how slow the ouya is. it has to be faster then the ouya lol.

Sounds really good to me. I had a mini PC before. Only difference is I had a 90 Gig SSD in it and 4 Gig ram. It was fast. It would boot up in less than 45 Sec from on to XBMC. It fried during a power failure. I might just get this also as my main streaming device.

I find a 32 Gig Flash Mem is a bit small though but should still be adequate.

I've been looking for one of these in the UK for a friend but can't find one.

A bit more expensive but this mini PC looks a goer:-

My Windows tablets have similar hardware inside and I'd say 32 GB storage is the minimum you need to be looking for with this type of hardware, I'm surprised just how well my little 7" tablet runs Windows and XBMC with 1 GB of RAM (could be a desktop when connected to the tv) but the 2 GB's RAM I have on my 10.1" really make things fly (don't expect to run Photoshop or transcode video on this type of hardware) and the boot times with the emmc memory is around 15 seconds

I just want something that i can use nicer skins in KODI, the ouya only has 1gb ram so it runs out pretty quick. Also iv had better luck with USB remotes with PC then androids. The mele f10 pro is ok on android but works perfectly on PC. Think im going to pull the trigger and order this in a couple days.
