I just ordered a Systemax no OS desktop PC from Tiger Direct. I think
this is an older model. It costs $299 plus shipping. It has the
INtel Celeron Dual Core E1200,
MSI G31M3-F motherboard (no longer manufactured)
250 GB SATA II drives (2)
Support comes direct from the manufacturer, not from Tiger Direct.
Since Linux runs on almost anything I think I will do OK.
A short anecdote. I bought my wife a refurbished HP laptop with Vista.
I intended to downgrade (upgrade?) to Win XP but HP wouldn´t endorse
this move because drivers may be missing. But I popped an old Knoppix
disk in the optical drive and it fired right up.
I´Il let you know how I make out with the Systemax box.
