I see them on ebay for $200+ and these things run quite old K1 SoCs and android versions, that said can one be used for cloud/home server streams if I use my mobile hotspot?

Well, at least one person does: Linus. He talks about it briefly in one of his recent new house videos. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

It's a device from mid-2013 with a 5" 720p screen.

I imagine you'd have a better experience buying cheap Chinese phones.

Well you mentioned that it was selling for about $200, so you can get current-generation Chinese phones at that price.

The whole reason it's still so expensive is because it's a unique product. It really isn't worth that money looking purely at the device itself.
