Get an awesome computer for really cheap!

If you are in the market for a new computer, but you don’t want to drop a couple grand, here’s how to get a really good one for under $500.

Go to eBay (of course) and look for a Dell Precision 450, 470, 650, or 670 with dual processors. These computers can run dual hyper-threading Xeon processors and usually come with XP Pro installed. You may need to buy some more RAM but otherwise a Dual 2.8Ghz (HT) computer will run under $500, and if you have time to bid rather than buy you may find one for under $300. Dual Hyper-threading roughly equates into four processors total.

Since these computers are essentially servers with XP on them, they should last a long time. The processor / chipset combination is rock solid, and you will be hard pressed to find a comparable computer for the price.

    Thanks for this advice. I’ll give it a try. I’m in the market for a new laptop so, i’ll take a look.

    Although i was looking at around 2GB ram, for the kinda stuff i do, i’ll take a look at what ebay have to offer.

    What’s your opinion on Acer machines? Some people have mentioned that they’re good. Anyone had any experience with them?
