Mini PC home media server


I’m replacing my aging gaming desktop (that was also a media server) with a new laptop (maybe SB2) and a mini PC server for media (plex), web browsing and productivity work (i.e. office). For the mini PC server, I don’t want to spend that much so I’m leaning towards the Intel BOXNUC7i3BNK NUC Barebone System. I’m curious if people have any experience with it. Right now I’m just doing 1080p but I would like to “future proof” my purchase for 4K. I’m pretty sure the Intel Core i3-7100U Dual Core 2.4GHz can handle direct play 4K. I don’t need on the fly 4K transcoding. Would like to hear other peoples thoughts on the topic.
