Does anyone know if this would be a good machine to act as a hub or server for my home network? I really would not use this for any real computing tasks, mostly for storage, and link to my router and modem.

It’s probably a little overkill to just be a media server. An i3 with 4GB of RAM is enough for a file server. This would be a better budget workstation or light gamer machine with a video card added.

Thank you, and my wallet thanks you!

@dturner53, it would be overkill, but could dual-function as a snappy all-around desktop as well.
