Thank you for your reply.
Do you know which internet browser is provided with Android ? Can you install something that's not on Google Play or Android Market ?
Because I can eventually help him to install basic programs on Linux (like Skype, internet browser...) it's not a problem. Then, the basic all-the-day use of his CubieBoard would be an easy just-need-to-clic.
Is the Android interface fluid ? Can you open your browser, go to youtube and watch a video easily ?

Beginners / How hard is it ?

I'm looking for a mini-pc for a friend which is not a Linux user.
His aim is to plug his mini-pc discreetly to his video-projector, and using it to watch youtube/streaming videos, go to internet, check mail etc.

I'm interesting with the cubietruck because it seems that it's one of the most powerful mini-pc. I own a Raspberry, not the last version, but when I use it with the graphical interface it's a total mess.

So my questions are :
How easy is the cubieboard3 to use ? If I only want to use it to go to the internet and look at videos ?
Is there anyhting special that requires Linux experience you need to install in the first place ?
How fluid is the graphical interface ? Which OS is the best to use it ?
Is there any issue with the HDMI display and SATA interface ?
