These are the same crappy ones everyone rails on when they go on sake right?
Any indication as to whether or not the machines have an HDMI port?
Anyone actually make out on this deal before?
A Computer of Crap? A box of Crap? I so want to buy one of these.
Unlikely considering the age of the processor, the operating system, and that they were former “business” class computers.
I really should jump on this. I would like to have a desktop to put Linux on and for this price, I’m thinking I couldn’t go wrong.
…but I’m probably wrong, so I won’t.
If I was really strapped for cash, I’d bite. This would be great for a computer to tinker with, or for a relative that just wants internet access- the only problem would be not knowing how much expanding you could do due to the randomness of the event. But figure, a full fledged PC for $95?
Actually, one of these machines would probably make a fine Linux machine.
Honestly, this is really no different than buying someone’s computer, from a garage sale.
Every time they do this, I am tempted. This time I felt that the temptation was too strong and pushed the button. We shall see what shows up, eh?
Any idea how fast of a processor is in these babies?
Over on Computer Woot, they have a refurb Dell with similar specs, except a 64-bit version of Win7 for $139. Slim tower makes upgrading anything more than HD or RAM a challenge. http://computers.woot.com/offers/dell-optiplex-755-80gb-sata-desktop-5?ref=cnt_wp_5_2
Probably computers companies trade in on leases for new Windows 8 computers. They look like what some of our older ones we use. For someone that loves Windows 7 and just browses daily deal web sites and checks email, this would be great.
They should put a ginormous Woot sticker on every one of these.
And in a couple years, we will be seeing a butt load of Windows 8 computers, in this type of sale. I would rather have Windows 7.
Faster than an Apple IIc.
Probably not much faster, though.
Keep in mind that if you want to upgrade RAM on this, it will be expensive. 2x 2GB DDR2 will probably go about $50
I saw the lure flash by and I bit! GF’s daughter needs a working PC. Would be great if it had built in wireless and a video card. But I won’t hold my breath. Who knows… Yo never know when buying a Bag Of Crap or a Box Of PC. Go WOOT!
You should probably expect a 2.4Ghz Core2Duo or so. Still plenty capable for a lot of stuff, but don’t expect any modern games to run. You also won’t want to open 50 tabs in Firefox on one of these puppies.
If you want a general purpose desktop, this is probably not going to satisfy. Might be good for a grandma machine–something for people who don’t really want to do much on the computer. Just a little email and Facebook to see the grandkids.
