Global Notes for all Intel + Windows Kodi MVC solutions:
2
> Windows 10 is assumed and recommended. But, Windows 8 will work fine as well
This spreadsheet is maintained by hdmkv @ Kodi forum, with contribution by the community. Thanks for helping out adding to it, keeping it updated.
3
> All NUC's or barebones require you to add 2.5" SSD (or mSATA or M.2 SSD), RAM and Windows 10
See support thread @ http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=266316
4
> With DIY (do-it-yourself) HTPC's, it's more work assembling, configuring than NUC's, so only take this route if you're comfortable building your own computers
5
> No i7's listed below, except the unique 'Skull Canyon', as they're overkill for any Kodi use. If you're a serious gamer, then consider
