Whoever thought the largest part of a desktop would be the monitor..........
And this is one of the larger compact units.

It doesn't come with Memory or Hard drive.DDR3L 1600/1333 It uses laptop memory and 2.5" Lap top HDD.Your looking at another $30-40 for 8gb memory and around $60-80 for a decent lap top hard drive.

Still not to bad but Newegg does sell Refurbished Dell PCs a bit cheaper.My uncle just got one of these to replace an older Dell with XP on it.He had me upgrade this to Win 10 and put another 4gb of memory in it for him.It's surprisingly fast.

Neweggs Ebay Store.

It runs Win 10 64 with no problems out of the box But if you throw another 4gb of memory in it,it is actually really fast.If you were to put Linux on it I bet it would last you a long long time before needing any upgrades.

I have worked hard to resist purchasing one of these and am surprised it is still out there for that price.

My approach would be as follows:

Hard drive - Kingston 120 GB SSD - $45

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820721107&ignorebbr=1

16 Gb 1.35 volt Crucial Ram - $63

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820721107&ignorebbr=1

I think DDR3 is as cheap as it will get. DDR4 is out so it is a matter of time before DDR3 becomes unobtanium.

Install your favorite Linux distro and enjoy.

That boils down to a machine that will last a long time with the SSD and 16GB of ram. Cut the ram down to 8 GB and you save another $30.
