Summary: I don't know if I'd buy this to use as is but for a little extra money it makes a great workstation.
Pros: 3 GHz duo is plenty fast for the light gaming and movie watching we will use this computer for. I did upgrade the video card with a Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 and installed a 120 GB SSD boot disk. The only thing left is to upgrade to windows 10 64 bit so I can take advantage of the 16gb of memory I h...
Cons: I'm not a fan of the 32 bit operating system (memory limited to 4gb total addressable memory, so if you add a 1 gb video card you really can only use 3 gb) but since there is currently a free windows 10 upgrade I could care less.
Summary: I would recommend it to people wanting an inexpensive computer to run old software on. It will upgrade to Windows 10---but I didn't want to lose the use of my old programs.
Pros: My unit came with both 32-bit and 64-bit disks for Windows 7. I used the 32-bit because I have old software that I still need to be able to run, and the Windows emulators don't seem to work well running them. Has display port.
Cons: Although smaller than some units, it's still pretty clunky. Very hard to get the power supply in and out. You have to do it just right. I upgraded to an SSD drive, very speedy.
Summary: These OTH boxes are great for FreeBSD of Linux tasks that require less the Gigabit transfer speeds. This one went in to replace an aging 1U P4 gateway. I installed FreeBSD PFSENSE on it using the 64 bit option, 2GB ram is fine and drive is there just to boot from and log traffic.
Pros: What do you do with an over the hill box? at $100 you add a second NIC and make a DMZ.
Summary: My 11 year old Dell with XP that I use in my shop gave me the blue screen of death. I use it mainly to play music, but I also backup photos and files from my laptop in the house and view how-to videos for my hobby. It was stupid cheap.
