They're so bad I throw them away


Ridiculous comment. Perfectly fine for home/office use, especially if you add a cheap SSD.

EDIT: sam_of_london liked your comment. I think I need add no more...

Throwing away 4th gen machines?

You must be stupid then
I got one a month ago from these. Paid £63. Moved the HDD to second and popped in my SSD as boot. Also added another 4GB of RAM. It's absolutely fine. Can't understand the complaints for £54. Does everyday computing for cheap in a nice little small form factor package.

I have a cheap gaming pc with an i3-4170 (3.7ghz), 8gb ram, and an old gtx670 GPU and I play all kinds of games with that....even Arma 3 which is quite cpu intensive.

Assuming this can take a GPUs...the addition of a 240g sad, upgrade to 8gb ram, and a low pofiles gtx1050ti would make this a great cheap budget system.

What's so bad about it?

I think it depends on what the intended use is. I found this good for general browsing and Word /Excel use.

Nope. Slow af. Clients use these for email, word and browsing. Just too slow after a handful of win10 updates.

SSD will help a ton. A £15/20 upgrade well worth it

Yep, £15 SSD and you've got a perfectly fine pc for office, web and email and will play HD video just fine without breaking a sweat.

It's the SSD thing. Some people just don't realise what they can do to a system like this. Laptops too!

No I just don't bother with the low spec models. I salvage i5s and i7s. They sell way more frequently
For anyone looking to buy this without any idea about upgrading SSDs, the 480GB SSD upgrade for an added £45 is very good value (although admittedly most with this machine probably won't need an SSD that big).
I'll second the slow comments, using a traditional HDD is painful.

I work with them and I've upgraded a few.

No they are full of intel CPU bugs. Old memory hard to find. . Waste space as well. Stick pc these days , has more power than these .
I am not saying throw away your old computer but to collect from dump to invest in them is foolish. We used have the HP 800 model with I5 at work 5 years ago . This is even older .

Absolute garbage. "Old memory hard to find" - in reality, extremely cheap to upgrade memory secondhand from eBay/CeX

That said, I'm glad we have people subsidising development by spending hundreds unnecessarily on new computers (which are still full of "intel CPU bugs").

Since when was DDR3 hard to find?

Just makes the rest of your comment look like rubbish.

To all the may sayers out there I would love a box like this (with a 15 GBP SSD) running opensuse (gnome) for the one kid left in the house without PC. It seems most of their usage centers around using a webbrowser and as long as their C2D are keeping up with the YouTube they are happy.

Ddr4 is faster and cheaper than ddr3 for a reason. Also available in bigger memory sizes and speed . DdR5 will start coming this year2020 .

That's not what you said though is it, obviously ddr4 is faster, talk about stating the obvious
Ordered one for my living room gonna stick in an ssd and my trusty old low profile 1050 ti and be sorted for media consumption the processor is on the weak side so I will stick in an I5 and that will be enough for my living room.

Hell yeah it does, I have an i3 3220 and a gtx 1050 ti in my living room and I play all sorts as well so this will be the same if not a little better.

I don't think they are still making ddr3 , only ones I see on eBay is from recycling and expensive.
Brilliant! I need an oldish PC to put Win XP pro on
Would this be suitable for a home server/nas?

They'll gradually stop making them yes, as new technology becomes avaliable that's just what happens, but there's still plenty of used ddr3 out there, I doubt anyone would go looking for new ddr3 for this machine or any ddr3 based machine, you may be right in a few years time but ddr3 is still readily available, ddr2 is still available used and that's even older.
Would anyone recommend this for plex server?

Not the most powerful CPU for transcoding. Perfectly fine as. NAS though if you have external drives, etc
Intel 4th Gen processors are't that bad at all. I've bench marked them against gen 5,6 and 7's with only a marginal speed increase which personally doesn't justify much larger price outlay. OK they don't support DDR4 and HEVC 10 bit directly but they perform pretty well with the right GPU.

Here's an Example just 8% faster.

Probably need another case for it unless you go for a big drive 2tb+, but saying that it all depends on how much content you have.

I personally use a e8400 machine as a plex server and have no issues streaming to 4-5 people at once, so this will be more than fine

4th gen i3s with hyperthreading are beasts. Keeps up with i5-4440 with less power and heat plus cheap. Best thing about 4th gen is you can swap in a range of better cpus that are cheap

DDR3 is uber cheap, you can get a 4GB stick for £6.

So you can pay nearly twice as much for a stick Pc with a far worse processor and that isn't expandable. Well, that's a convincing argument...
