Intel VAAPI howto with Leia v18 nightly based on Ubuntu 18.04 server
I had a Celeron 1820T based setup in my living room before I got a passively cooled ZBOX CI520 nano. It will be fine with this howto.

Kodi's part was not hard at all (though testing did not yet happen):

Seems with this next gen codec VAAPI will go into a nice future, at least HEVC wise.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
