Desktop con piccolo fattore di forma e prestazioni da portatile

(Ho scritto il post in inglese per avere opinioni anche in altri forum. Abbiate pazienza)

CONTEXT:
At the moment, my girlfriend has a several years old HP laptop, that she uses daily like a desktop.

The only game she plays is League of Legends. Her job involves the daily use of Photoshop CC 2015 paired with a Wacom tablet: the tablet's screen for photoshop and the laptop's screen for watching videos at the same time (I wonder how she multi-tasks so well lol). Other than that, she pretty much does normal stuff with Chrome, like watching 720p videos or surfing the internet. She's really happy with the performance.

She brings the laptop when traveling, but she never uses it when on his way. When she lodges somewhere, I expect her to use the Wacom screen as the main screen at the beginning. However, it's crucial to have the possibility at a later time to connect a second screen for watching videos while working.

I'd like to gift her a new desktop.

FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENTS:
The build must be:
- As cheap as possible (around 300 euro or less?): she must be able to use Photoshop CS5 (with a bunch of Chrome tabs open) and play League of Legends smoothly. I actually think that her current laptop is a little bit "overkill" for what she does (more on that below)
- Smallest form factor, so that she can bring it when traveling without taking up too much space
- The reference market is Austria/Germany and the currency is euro

HER LAPTOP SPECS:
APU:

AMD A8-5550M, 4 cores/4 threads, Clock 2.10GHz up to 3.10GHz
Integrated graphic card is AMD Radeon HD 8550G
RAM: 8GB DDR3, 1600Mhz, Single channel
Storage: 1TB machanical drive - 5400RPM
OS: Windows 10 Home

PHOTOSHOP CC 2015 REQUIREMENTS (for your information):
CPU:
64-bit support, 2 GHz or faster (I've read that PS doesn't take advantage of multicore processors mostly)
RAM: 8 GB
GPU: OpenGL 2.0-capable system, 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM (NICE TO HAVE: 2 GB)

LEAGUE OF LEGENDS:
CPU:
3 GHz processor (the game doesn't take advantage of multicore processors)
RAM: 4GB RAM
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800/AMD Radeon HD 5670 or equivalent video card, 512MB or more of dedicated VRAM, support for DirectX v9.0c or better.

TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS:
I honestly think that almost any modern budget pc could outperform this laptop, so this shouldn't be a big challenge.
Based on the softwares she uses, I think that I'd look for at least a build like this:
APU:
At least dual core processor, clock up 3Ghz (in this way, she can at least run Photoshop + Chrome at the same time)
Integrated graphic card, OpenGL 2.0-capable system, 512 MB or more of dedicated VRAM, support for DirectX v9.0c or better
Reference videocards: Nvidia GeForce 8800/AMD Radeon HD 5670 or equivalent
RAM: 8GB (single channel is ok to get started)
Storage:
128GB SSD (to improve loading times; the pc would look faster than her laptop while it isn't)
Option to add an Sata III HD
Connectivity: wi-fi

MY TECHNICAL OPINION (and I'd appreciate your opinion!):
- I'd choose an AMD processor because they are cheap and decently performant for her needs
- I'd choose an AM4 socket, since they'll be supported at least for the next 2 years
- NICE TO HAVE: half decent motherboard so that maybe she can upgrade to a Ryzen 3 2400G or the like in future
- NICE TO HAVE: motherboard with overclocking feature
- NICE TO HAVE: option to add a videocard

non ci ho capito nulla, e non per l'inglese
serve un budget
se viaggia molto, anche con un mini ITX è costretta a portarsi dietro le periferiche
la terza generazione ryzen, in vendita dal 7 luglio, ha prestazioni superiori ad intel, ma per un 3400G bisognerà aspettare settembre
una motherboard itx costa minimo 110€, 16gb sugli 80€, un buon case piccolo sopra i 100€

Ciao! Cosa non ti è chiaro del tutto? Ovviamente sono disponibile per chiarimenti.

Il budget è scritto:
around 300 euro or less

ha prestazioni di poco superiori al suo notebook, l'unico vantaggio è nel gaming con la gpu integrata vega
se proprio non vuoi andare su un portatile, cerca fra i nuk e i mini pc con almeno un i5
