I have loved this system which I am using as a Virtualization server (libvirt) for writing articles for LinuxForum.com.

Okay, so I was a little sceptical of this unit when I first saw it. It's darn cheap for the specs it has. But I called the company and spoke with a nice lady who assures me their warranty program is solid if any issues arise. And taking into account that the CPU's were last in production 10 years ago, I suppose the price makes sense. It's refurbished and the parts are a bit old.
This product qualifies for the free Fedex Ground shipping. It took two days for the unit to be taken out of the warehouse and picked up by Fedex. Then only 2 more days to get here. I was really excited about that!
The packaging was impressive! My unit was securely surrounded by 6-7 inch of foam that was then wrapped in a plastic material made by the company Sealed Air. It would have to be pretty hard for this thing to get damaged during shipping and that was relieving.
I've not found any issues with the hardware on my unit so far. Everything is as described and I really can't be happier. It's an older machine, but the specs are still awfully impressive.
This unit has been running an OpenStack lab for the last few days with no hardware issues at all.
All prices are in USD.
