This will likely replace the existing Celeron-driven NUC - http://www.newegg.com/Pr...px?Item=N82E16856102004. And with a large enough SATA HDD (such as this one - http://www.newegg.com/Pr...x?Item=N82E16822178420), it could most certainly be a micro-productivity - not gaming - box, running a Linux distribution or even Windows 8.1 - therefore, not even close to pushing it. (You could park it alongside a console or STB, using a spare HDMI-in, and hang any wireless USB keyboard and mouse of your choice off it.)
