I was looking at the same PC to replace an Android Box in my living room running Kodi in Android.

Do you guys think this would be a better option?

edit: Link doesn't explain that well, the one I'm looking at is an I3-3217U 4GB 500GB Win8.1

Only issue is it's almost $600, for another $100 I can get an i3 Alienware Alpha.
Both options would need an SSD upgrade, which I'd rather not do. I currently have more 500gb and 1tb HDD's kicking around than I know what to do with. Plus I could build something comparable for that price.

Do you guys think the PC originally posted has enough power if I run Openelec and Kodi as my OS, vs Kodi in windows?

Sony 75" X940D, 7.1 Klipsch, Onkyo TX-NR656, Xbox One/360, Nvidia Shield Alienware Alpha, Arris Gateway, 42" Samsung
