What Device for NextCloud and OnlyOffice

as NextCloud is running on my Raspberry Pi 4 and OnlyOffice on a server from Hetzner, I would like to have everything at home. It is intended for my family (4 people), and a few apps (including Talk and OnlyOffice). Do you have a recommendation for a device? The pain threshold for the price is about 150€. https://nextcloud.com/devices/ 1 is known to me.
I know, partly it is certainly a question of faith, but nevertheless I would be grateful for some tips.

If you need the almost similar form factor.

I have one instance running on an UP board x5 Atom z8350.

starting at US$ 99,- (exluding all peripherals)
I myself have the 4GB/64GB (which is US$ 169,-) with two external drives running on Debian.
If you need to use the pins you check the community for the linux versions supporting it… I did not have to worry about the pins, it was the intel/amd64 I architecture I was after…

I have it running for over two years without a hassle… yes it is triple a RPi4 4GB but far beyond anything more reliable.

Else try and find a second hand DELL optiplex… bigger but still small. And possibly outperforming the UP.

Just get and old x86 PC or laptop.

If it has to be a SBC or similar, these are two other good options. The PC-Engine ones are especially interesting if you want to replace a router with it.

Will something like this do it? Maybe faster as RP4?

Dell Optiplex 7010 / i3-3225 2x 3,30GHz, 4GB, 250GB

Sure that would work.

Speed really depends on the specific storage and network setup.

Thank you!

At my house, this computer works well with Debian and NextCloud on it. By the way, it consumes very little electricity.
