Yes, me too: not just really smooth, it has to be perfect. I can't stand 
the rough look of playback when (say) a 24fps movie is played back with 
a 60fps refresh rate. I cannot stand the odd tick in the motion of a 
slow pan when playback is struggling to keep up. That's why I've avoided 
ARM-based so far. I am actually seeing flawless playback from the device 
I link to above. Perhaps the difference with respect to the one you 
linked is 400 vs 600 intel graphics. (Can't comment on 4K. I don't have 
a 4K TV).

It's fanless too, if I'm correctly understanding what you're saying.
