    Hi guys. Currently I have a server laptop that serves me for these purposes:

    Runs 24/7
    Runs Utorrent and downloads some stuff with RSS feeds
    Connected to my WD 4 TB external harddrive via USB
    Runs Air Video (a software that streams video via internet or LAN to my mobile devices like ipad and iphone)
    Runs some media player server apps for my tv or PS3
    Keeps my files and runs Dropbox
    Lets me remotely connect to it via Logmein or Teamviewer
    Lets me access to my files (remember the 4 TB HDD) from my Mac (as network drive)
    It runs a Windows 7 copy


    But it's an old laptop and nowadays it started getting too hot and slow. I am thinkg about replacing it. I see some androidbox media players that run Android. Should I stick to a windows machine? Or what should I buy? What is your solution for those stuff I mentioned above?..
