Hi guys,


Im a "newbie" in this topic.


Im considering spending about (not much really) max. 200 € and that is streching my wallet :)


So my question is:


Should i save a little more or buy a step up box.


This is my point of view,


I want something simple, where i can watch tv, movies hear music and try things out.


Should i save a bit more and buy a powerful pc or would a set up box do the trick?


My searching gave so many results, there are a lot of them out there ( minix, vu, wetek, nividia) , but also so many mini pc like intel.


So what would you say?


Thanks in advance


best regards

All depends what you want to do honestly. With that budget you could get a decent Android tablet and call it a day. That will let you do the regular browsing, watch Netflix, etc etc. If you are wanting an actual PC you are going to want to save up for a bit more before buying something. Maybe more around the 500 range, though that is in dollars, not exactly sure what it would be in your currency, regardless a couple hundred more and you would be okay probably.
