This cheaper one also doesn't have an ssd, but does have 500gb sata instead..just for info
I think this is cheap enough and fast enough with 8gb and ssd..
This is perfect for running certain OS that are normally not run on a PC...
all gone, does anyone know where I could buy a power adaptor ?
note sure if this is the cheapest adapter
Would football manager 2020 be playable on this? Just for future reference if it becomes available again.

Would you really want a refurbished SSD?
this form factor & cpu is meant to be good for retro emulation

Is it though, big Linux fan but I've heard it has to support the hardware explicitly, unlike Windows that runs on anything.

It may be new, some refurbs would have a new SSD fitted to make them nice and quick but it might be old, albeit from around 2016-2017 so not too old. SSDs aren't necessarily unreliable, I'm still using a Samsung Evo 830 from 2012 and no sign of issues.

Do you think a refurbished sata is a better option then?

Let's be realistic here, the drive is almost certinly not refurbished in any way and if you said to me pick a drive with plates and a head or a solid state, my money would be on the solid state for being the better bet.

Anyway, my observation on the drive was just so people didn't miss the fact
I'm lucky lol, I got a pc for free with similar specs. The machine I got from college has a i7 7700. They give them away every 2 years or so when they upgrade. The case used here is almost the same

I dont think people understand here,this PC with these specs is fantastic.You can not buy better for a home PC. Anyway does not matter all gone now.Not a Gaming rig.

Linux and Windows will both run on just about any x86 hardware, the difference is in drivers. If you don't have a driver for your soundcard (even on-board ones) you won't have sound regardless of your OS choice. The manufacturer will likely have bothered to write a driver for windows since it's a popular OS but maybe not for Linux.

If you check the hardware more thoroughly (common pain points are sound, wifi, ethernet) for Linux compatibility you should avoid nasty surprises.

Yeh I tried to install Linux Mint on an old (but good) Sony laptop I had, but had to give up in the end cos it kept black screening because of the graphics card.

I ment OSX. There is a guide for this on YouTube.
