I've been interested with this product for a while and finally purchased one! It is quite pricey but definitely brought life and modernity to my bathroom. I also installed Mirror Feeds application from the play store just to have my smart mirror lay out and be updated with stocks, weather, and international news. Hurt my pocket but definitely worth it.

I actually started to look into Magic Mirrors again.
Pi Zero W can be found for under $15, I have an old working led monitor in the basement collecting dust as well as tons of wood laying around.
I also have a few old tablets laying arround.
You can find two way mirror samples for Under a $1 and acrylic is cheap.
I have most things needed just collecting dust so I know I can build two for just the price of the glass( or Acrylic)
Looks like a nice inexpensive winter project.

The Magic mirror forum https://forum.magicmirror.builders/
has lots of helpful members and posts so even none techy users should be able to put one together.
Understanding different programing languages is not require however it would help if you were to attempt making your own info module for the mirror.
But even then there are several programers there that are more then happy to create something for you free of charge.
Just going through the threads of user mirror photos will inspire almost anyone.
The current list of available addon info modules is mind boggling.

I also want a smart mirror but i always ask myself why i need it. Maybe because i want to impress my guests, idk. maybe it's just me. But man they're not cheap!

Thanks for the suggestion, I checked that out already. That's freakin awesome and cheaper but the problem is I'm not a techy person, I can't even understand the setting up manual. LOL
Meanwhile, some mirrors are in complete package already. I think this magic mirror has limited features? I mean you will be needing to install something so you can access or do something like those
expensive smart mirrors?

Why not make your own?
There are tons of how to videos on YouTube.
or google Magic mirrors.
There are also lots of android apps available for this, most have an old smart phone or tablet laying around.
I plan on making one for an info/control center for my HA setup.
