Wanting one for a travel device for streaming and a few games but don't want to go in the deep end.

By "a few games" do you mean emulation? Because it's an ARM based PC that won't run normal windows or even netflix without a lot of tinkering (enough tinkering that my eyes started to glaze over while skimming through it), and while youtube does work it's not a great experience unless you're willing to deal with low resolutions. It's just not really meant to do that, it's designed for young people who can't afford a computer of their own to begin tinkering with programming. The fact that it runs emulators really well is just a bonus.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Bluetooth, and OTG cables are available. I have a SHIELD tablet and it does everything you want it to do.

Yes I know bluetooth but I only like wired things unless its a remote control.

And I planned a external hard drive, wired controller and just a cheap bluetooth mini keyboard/touch pad

That and I take my laptop with me anyway the whole point was to have something I can just plug in instead of my laptop which is a gaming one and weights a lot, didn't want to sit in bed with laptop watching a film on tv with large cable, or if bored go on youtube (netflix was just a suggestion as I don't have a subcription, but in future may get a few streaming accounts so wanted the option)
