Well, I broke down and tried one of those ZOTAC PICO PCS WITH WINDOWS 8.1 W/BING  and I have to say that I'm very disappointed with the result of it all with my current setup.  

After reading reviews I thought this might just be what the doctor ordered, with a large drink, to go - but alas, the Roku 3 with the Plex Channel is so far superoir ans a client at half the cost.  If you'd like to see a review/etc on it, here's the link that started me down the rabbit hole...
Zotac's tiny new ZBOX PI320 pico should arrive in stores towards the end of September for $200, which includes not only the hardware but Win 8.1 meaning you can simply plug it in and start using it. At 115.5mm x 66mm x 19.2mm (4.5" x 2.6"x 0.75") it is smaller than your average Galaxy smartphone ...

card that will just rock your world of gaming overclock goodness!
Today we have the GIGABYTE GTX 980 G1 GAMING, which features the WINDFORCE 600W cooling system and a high factory overclock. We will make comparisons to the competition, find out how fast it is compared to a GTX 980, and you won't believe the overclock we achieved! We will make both performance and price comparisons.

with a feature compleat ht for 35 bucks with a drop in charger plus another 20 in a real antenna and a spare battery and you're set for technicians and I got a ft 817 on the air with some goodies under 500 used and built an end fed long wire that covered enough bands that I taught mtself the general bnd plan and worked digital modes

I'm sure others can relate some other just as good or better deals but these are my experiences that I did by myself, without ab elmer anymore, the two I had have passed but you can bet I'm trying to get my health back so I can hekp others like mine did me
