Didn't think copying files would be very CPU intensive. Thought it was more dependent on the HDD write and read speeds.
But I think I'll go with a pure NAS. Having HTPC functionalities wouldn't be very beneficial with 3 tv's. Was thinking I could use it on all tv's but forgot... you can't just connect the ethernet cable and be done with it...
For one tv it would be fine and just connect it through HDMI but the others would still need mediaplayers. Also, I'm placing it out of sight so probably wouldn't be very practical operating it. Maybe with an android app or something. Might still go with an I processor just to futureproof though.
