Personally I like the Minix Neo U1. Its got a good quality built and online community support. There are a lot of cheaper china-made android boxes though...

I'm looking for more expensive models to replace my Windows PC. Quite sick of Windows updates, a sheer waste of my valuable time & electrical energy.

Any good, high end models with new, powerful features? And also reduce my carbon footprint ...

Why not? I'm only using my Windows 64 bits PC to download my monthly bank statements & read them in Foxit PDF reader on my external monitor. No complicated stuff involved.

Agree. Thats what I'm thinking too hence I did some research on this already. Suggest u to consider getting via Amazon, there are lots of TV box running on windows 10. Specs below are just USD 105.
There are other TV Box that runs on Android (even cheaper).

Wintel pro W8 Windows 10 Mini PC Destop Smart TV Box Media Player with Intel Cherry Trail Z8300 Quad-core 4K HD 2GB RAM 32GB Disk HDMI 2.4GHz Wifi Bluetooth4.0 USB3.0 (2GB+32GB)

Prefer using Android instead of Windows :
First, more secure and robust, no need worry too much on ransom-wares & security issues.
Second, is the hassle free updates, saving me valuable time and electrical energy consumption.
Third, is cheaper because Android is a free operating system, with lots of supported apps which are freely available on Google Play Store.
Also smaller footprint & using much lesser system resources, less heat dissipation.
Buy Minix from local distributor has got 3 years warranty (one to one exchange).

Install and use original apps like YouTube, Yahoo Mail, Dropbox & WhatsApp etc. is not an issue.

Even if you don't update, still working well. The problems are usually arising from apps that are shady, and download illegal contents. If you use original stuff like Netflix, don't think would give users any trouble.

So, always use a reputable antivirus app, and established apps which doesn't infringe other's intellectual property.
