That link says 1080p on the hdmi output, and only 100Mbit ethernet.
Having options is always a good thing.

Huh. The person that told me about the M4 said that they all had 4K output.

Oh well. I guess they had to remove those things to decrease the cost due to the fact they have an m.2 connector and DDR4 Ram.
