Question Needed: HD, 3D, Skype & market or apk installer. What to buy?

Hi,

I'm new on this forum, and I want to replace my good old Xbox with XBMC installed with the next gen stuff. I'm attracted to an android tv box because I expect good performance and the freedom to install or change what you like. I see there are a lot of devices already out there, and it's very hard to find the perfect match for me. Can you help me out?

Must haves:
- Full HD support
- Supports most video & audio & subtitle formats
- Support for 3D video
- Market Place or at least a way to install APK
- be able to play from a shared windows drive from my win XP machine
- AV out & HDMI out

Wanted if possible:
- Skype (with USB cam support)
- DLNA support (my future TV will be able to work with DLNA servers, but not mandatory because the android TV box will take over this functionality)
- serves as NAS server
- smartphone/web interface as remote
- I see some devices have something like dualboot to linux too? Is this recommended to install XBMC then and use this?
