Best part is it was free!

It's a huge upgrade over the abacus I'm using, but I didn't have any say in what I got.

Opinions?

Well, if you were looking to buy one, I'd probably recommend against it. They look cool, but you pretty much can't upgrade anything in those. However, the specs look fine to me. Nothing fancy, but it should do the trick for basic use, and the price was right! :thumb:

How'd you get it for free, if you don't mind me asking?

My FiL went out to get himself one, and inexplicably bought us one too.

I figured there was no way to do any upgrades (which bothers me a little), but I'm running an old AMD 750mhz so it's such an immediate jump in specs that I really can't complain.

I also can get rid of this 19" CRT that we had to build an addition on the house for.

Free? How did you pull that off?
