Needs to have HDMI output. Low spec and HDD not required.

Will pay up to about £70. A low spec nettop would be ideal.

Ive got a raspberry and a custom built htpc. I use the htpc downstairs and the raspberry upstairs.

This one is for my mum. I just want something she can plug into a TV full of films. She doesnt understand streaming etc and it wont even be online. Just a movie player.

She just needs something small and self contained so she cant break it. Wasnt keen on having a usb hard drive coming out of it.
