Thin Client


Some of the suprises that I got were the dual-core model of the Intel Atom, and a wireless card. I can run Windows 7 X64, which is nice. Comes with an extra SATA connection that I don't really know what to do with.

Dell build quality, nice surprises under the hood, sockets for more ram, PS/2 keyboard and mice connections for those nice older model peripherals I've been wanting to use. Very inexpensive. A great machine if you know what you're buying.

Won't work with Windows 10, unless you want to use the 1200xgodawful resolution of the default Win10 that case it will work with Win10. Discovering how to remove the casing wasn't as easy as I'd expected, but it makes up for it.
