Are the keyboard and mouse a toss up or are they Lenovo branded?
Time to learn more about the processor
If only I didn’t have a eMachines EL1358G-51W, this would be perfect for me.
And we have Intel making a difference.
I’m gonna assume they’re Lenovo, but you know what they say about assume…
I emailed the buyers. I’ll let you know what I hear back.
Sounds like we’ll get confirmation in the morning. So basically, I’m saying don’t wait up.
What is an “External bay”? Is it inside or outside the console?
It means it can be accessed from the outside, like a CD/DVD bay or perhaps a floppy drive or a card reader.
Ah, got it. So that means if I want to add a second internal hard drive, the 5.25" bay is probably not the spot?
no, but it has displayport
Not a bad buy really. Amazon has it refurbed as well for $280 (with a GB less RAM).
By adding another 4GB of RAM for ~$30-40, you could have a really decent desktop for under $300.
I have a refurb Lenovo with a similar feature set to this one. I’ve been using it as a file server and it has worked flawlessly. (In this usage, external drives pick-up the files for off site back-up.)
The accessories that came with mine (keyboard and mouse) were low cost generic items. If I was using mine as a work station, I would upgrade them.
Mine is a nice workmanlike machine. Nothing more, nothing less.
It wouldn’t be problem, actually, if the 5.25" bay were vacant. An external bay is essential if you’re adding an optical drive or a floppy drive or a zip drive, because otherwise you couldn’t change discs. But there’s no reason you couldn’t put a hard drive in a vacant external drive slot.
BUT! The 5.25" external bay is NOT vacant. It has a CD/DVD drive already sitting in it. Probably one of the 3.5" bays is vacant, and the other 3.5" bay holds the hard drive.
