I need to buy a small PC that I plan to mount behind a TV in our office which will be used as Kodi box as well as video conferencing and training materials. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? It doesn't have to be the fastest, but I assume i3 should be minimum for usual tasks.

I found this, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6856164052 but it's $500. I am not sure if this is worth $500 over Asus https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VivoMini-VC6...al_qh_dp_i

Gigabyte comes with mounting plate so it would actually be perfect since I can mount it on the wall.

Any other suggestions?
You certainly don't need an i3 for kodi. A celeron chromebox is sufficient.

Thanks, but it will be a video conferencing device as well running GoToMeeting with 4 cameras (3 other participants) on screen, and we will most likely use it to demonstrate new applications or presentations. That's why I figured we'd need at least I3.

I can't find a lot of celeron boxes either. What happened to all those various mini PC's. Were they just not popular?
