Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
Jep @wsnipex that's the case - I installed 16.04 on a braswell two days ago. Only difference, one needs to install the xserver-xorg-legacy packages and reconfigure that instead of x11-common. Also wsnipex vaapi ppa is not needed anymore. For kodi one could also install the kodi nightly ppa.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
