I'm not sure about video performance as I've only run a terminal on my monitor at this point.  If there is any interest, I could try loading version 30 on it and trying it on my monitor.  That's not a big deal.  I'm not as picky as a lot of you videophiles so I may miss minor distortions.

I purchased one of these 
Fanless Mini PC, 2GB/32GB Intel Atom x5-Z8350(2M Cache, up to 1.92 GHz),HD Graphics 400,4K/1000M LAN/2.4G+5.8G WIFI/BT4.0, Support Windows 10

When I bought it, it was $70 as a lightning deal, but is now $109. Looks like it goes lightning deal every month or so.

It is an intel cherry trail processor, and needs 2 things done once linux(ubuntu 18.10 in my case) is installed to get full benefit from it.

As a frontend running latest master to take advantage of the VAAPI 2 changes, it works fine, and currently master frontend is able to talk with v29 backend.
