    I'm sporting an [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Box (I think) bought from AliExpress for just under £40.

    Currently got the Openelec Flavour of Amlogic [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] on it and runs like a dream.
    Got PleXBMC on at the moment, but waiting on a Plex Openelec version (may not ever happen) to put on it.

    I've tried (for a few days) a "loolbox" that my mate ordered from China. It had loads of channels (read: streams) to try to watch including about 60 sports channels in mainly Arabic language. Ultimately the robustness of the video let it down, some streams would have functioning audio but frozen images on screen and occasional bursts of video. Less popular channels/events would have an excellent picture and audio experience. I'd say definitely avoid these. My mate paid about $100 and when he complained to the seller he was given $30 back straight away no investigation & no further questions.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Your Mac Mini can probably run Kodi just fine depending on what CPU etc.
