- Intel Mini-PC for $255
Intel NUC5i3RYH Mini/Bookshelf PC with a 5th generation Intel Core i3-5010U processor, Intel HD Graphics 5500, USB3.0 ports, HDMI port, gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, and Wifi 802.11ac for $255 today.
It normally sells for about $300.
It is a "barebones" PC, meaning you must add your own memory (DDR3 SO-SIMM), your own disk (2.5" hard drive or SSD), and your own software and operating system (Windows, Linux, Kodi, etc).
If you are looking for a home theater PC, the Intel Mini/Bookshelf PCs are rated highly on Newegg.com.
If you are looking for a home theater PC but don't want to install your own memory and operating system, check out the Wetek Play (starts at $97) which can run Android apps (review).
If you are looking for something super cheap, check out the Amazon Fire TV Stick ($40) which can not only stream videos, but can also handle some third-party software such as Kodi.
