Need an Android Box


New member

I'm looking for an Android Box that I can connect to the network via ethernet out of site and then remote desktop to it from my Windows 10 laptop? It needs to be able to run all the standard phone \ tablet apps. I'm hoping to find a device that runs android 6 or greater and is well supported by the manufacturer with updates, etc.

Is anything available that would work? Most of the device I find seem to be designed for plugging into your TV and run android 5. I was using Bluestacks on my laptop but it was killing my battery and they want to either install bloatware or charge a fee so I figured it would be better to buy a device.
