I’ve been using this MSI Cubi with an Intel i3 Broadwell processor for a few weeks and I love this little guy.
Put in a spare SSD drive and 16GB of memory with Ubuntu server and it was ready to go after installing Plex server.
Low power usage, quiet, four USB 3.0 ports for your massive external hard drives, an HDMI port and Mini Display Port make for an awesome little machine. And it will output 4k when you’re ready to hook it up to your fancy 4k television.
It also has a gigabit ethernet connection and wireless built-in. And if you really want to get crazy fast SSD speeds, it has a M.2 connection for that type of SSD.
