Here is what I need my new device to do: run deluge, an NFS of my external hard drive(and be able to steam 1080p smoothly), and play relatively smooth flash on occasion. Would the basic mint box support my needs?
My other big question is about DisplayPort. I have an old TV with VGA. Do I just need a DisplayPort to VGA adapter or do I need an active one?
Lastly: is it really silent?
