Brand New Zoostorm intel Ivy Bridge Pentium G2020 Dual Core Desktop 500GB HDD, 4GB RAM, DVD-RW, Win 8.1 - Zoostorm found these under their bed and are selling for £104.99 from their ebay outlet.

So here's the chase and I'm going to cut to it:
There's only 3 of these so hurry hurry hurry, step right up.
Yes it's 'only' an old generation Ivy Bridge Pentium G2020 CPU.
Yes it's measly 4GB ram and a tiny 500GB hard drive.
Yes it's Windows 8.1 and we all hate it, yes every single normal person on the planet hates it, it's utter crap.
BUT IT'S £104 brand new and a fully working ready to go desktop.

Windows 8.1 can immediately be consigned to the dustbin where it belongs and by using the 'Assistive Technologies' free upgrade path with Windows 10 is still available and it's not dodgy to do, no puppies are killed in doing this Win10 upgrade - so no need to hurt your eyes with nasty Windows 8.1 and in fact by ridding another PC of Windows 8 is actually a very noble cause. Chuck in a cheapo SSD and this will actually be a decent basic desktop.

Great basic PC for a good price..... no spec snobs will like it, bit for surfing etc heat added.
Yes this is a piece of junk but it's brand new junk and a fully working, fully licenced Windows desktop for £104.99.
Yes someone will tell us that they can build something one hundred thousand times more powerful for £4.24 including gold plated case and Windows 12 but for the rest of us, this might be a super cheap way to get granny online or give to someone you don't really like but are obligated to get them online.

Windows 10 upgrade is still free and easy using assistive technologies upgrade path, doing this really does not harm anyone or anything. In fact upgrading from Windows 8.1 is mandatory in some countries now, so buy buying this computer and upgrading it, you're actually doing a noble thing by ridding the planet of one more Windows 8.1 computer.

it's basically a free desktop as Windows 10 is about that price going down the official route.

shhh.... now you've gone and done it, the usual proponents of 'windows 10 pro is free' and the 'windows 10 pro is £0.14' on ebay will be along any time now!

Yeah thanks for all the comments, I try and find a decent deal and make myself (and maybe others) laugh at my terrible sense of humour.

every penny counts - just check the fan is fitted correctly, I've had reports that some of these suck instead of blow
Looks like they've all been bought......
You never fail to deliver with your descriptions!

​around 4£ on ebay for a windows 10 key
this is a good alternative: serversplus.com/ser…421

this is cheaper (after cashback), newer skylake chip, no windows dvdrw or hdd though.

any refub stations for a office? looking for something around £150? no idea what CPU can be had for that

It was so good that Zoostorm kept a load locked away and forgot all about them, then they did a spring clean and found a few boxed up ones. Well so I heard.
