Solid Value


Again, no pre-installed junk and no VISTA!

Spacious and easy to work on, fast, quiet, dual monitor ready, no pre-installed bloatware and comes with XP Pro NOT VISTA! My USB ports are 2.0, front and rear. Runs every piece of software I own and runs it well, including AutoCAD Land Desktop 2007,...

Specs are in error as there are no firewire ports, front or rear. Not really a con because I could see that by viewing all the pics

It still has lots of available expansion card slots

But it does not have the specified 3 available PCI slots. It only has 2

Linux Compatible


This is a good choice if you want a well built, simple, fast, quite, and inexpensive workstation.

Booted and installed Ubuntu 7.10 and everything works flawlessly. I've got 2 lcd monitors, compiz fusion, vmware, etc ; It runs fast ; It is extremely quiet

I ditched the keyboard and mouse. I didn't even try them so I can't really say they're a con

Nice Rig.


I run a test server on this machine but its working perfectly.
