Asus released its brands new soc board with Debian (ThinkerOS) which is a wonderful news!
I have been looking for a board for making some emulation thing for I while but I resisted because I don't believe the PI3 is good a choice, I have a PI2 but I had some issues with it so I didn't believe those are pretty reliable either...
This new soc by Asus is more powerful than a PI3 and not so much expansive:

Maybe I could consider this board as choice however the OSMC team already said they will not support this board because Asus has implemented AV acceleration in a hacky way.
Anyway due the fact it uses Debian, has GB lan and yet affordable is surely better than the PI's for a small nas, at least on the paper...
