    Actually on the HD it was just a spare I had lying around I just gave it a value of $50

    this isn't to bad for $13.50 it has an atom 1.66ghz proc 4GB ram

    The reason I like using thin Client PC's is because low power consumption 12-18 watts.
    and they are quiet, no fans.
    and its fits on the back of my monitor with a vesa mount.
    and they run for months with no problems, I also have mine setup to restart my BBS after a power failure.
    perfect for my BBS needs :)
