|I've found bargains at compgeeks before, so when I was looking for a server/storage box for home, I went there and found a Dell GXa OptiPlex MiniTower w/Enhanced Manageability(refurb) for $159. It has a 300MHz PII, 5 and 4 PCI/ISA slots, 3 external 5.25 bays (1 w/a 32x CD-ROM), 2 internal 3.5" bays (1 w/3G HD), Floppy drive, 64Mb RAM (3 DIMM slots, 2 filled), Built-in ATI 3D Rage Pro AGP (2M upgradeable to 4M), 10/100NIC on Mb, 2 USB, Crystal Audio on Mb (line-in, line-out, mic), 2 Serial, 1 Parallel, 2 PS/2. A Nifty hinged case (no tools needed). Whew! And all the PCI/ISA slots are vacant! No software, only accy was a power cord, but all docs are on Dell's website.|
Shipping was $21 (it was well-packed) so for $180 I have a full-functioning and reasonably fast computer that I'm typing this on just 2 hrs after unboxing (my own mouse, kbd, and monitor). And it's absolutely brand-new, I mean not a scratch or fingerprint. I'm not affiliated w/compgeeks in any way, but this to me is pretty amazing. I'm very pleased.
I wonder what other deals the future holds for us out there, as the economy continues to tank...
