Any particular reason why you are upgrading? unless you need HDCP 2.2 there is little to no gain even compared to a gen 3 (if yours is 2 years old it will be a gen 4-5)

Yeah HDCP 2.2 support is probably the main one - looking at buying a new main TV soon.

Plus I feel like my little HTPC NUC is a bit slow.....

But I can't seem to find it available in Aus? Anyone know why? Or does Aus have a different product code?
Looks to be a couple of AU sellers with that model number: http://www.staticice.com.au/cgi-bin/...C7i7BNH&spos=3

The i7 CPU appears to be the limiting factor, with slightly more hits for the i5 model and heaps more hits for the i3 model.

Cheers,

Does anyone own that fancy new quad core Celeron? The one with HDMI 2.0, quad core (wtf?) and only $160 US / around $240 AUD?

Apparently it's an amazing HTPC, I'm considering one and then selling off my new and shiny Silverstone case and cute little SF supply. The nuc would be even smaller and save space.
