Anything I can do with an old nettop PC?
So I got an Nvidia Shield TV last year which made the nettop HTPC kinda obsolete. It ran Windows 7 and Kodi just fine but I think it was too weak to stream Steam games. That's when I went with the Shield.
Here's the nettop in question. Inside it has 4GB of ram and a 128GB SSD. I'm curious if I can use the PC for anything other than a HTPC? Is it powerful enough to be a server? Can it stream media (including transcoding)? Can it act as a file server while attached to an external drive enclosure?
I ask because I want to unload these duties from my main PC so I can at least turn it off at night and maybe save some power.
