I use this in the living room for storing tv an films from eztv etc and for surfing using wireless keyboard. Mine had a 500 gb hard drive, 3gb ram on windows 7 and it runs quite nicely...i recall it cost me 50 quid posted. They are quite small so dont take up much room either. Built well and have dvd drive fitted as well.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-Optiplex ... 4ac87329cf
I have the larger form factor one in the bedroom for storing stuff on as well when i want to watch something in bed. Thats got a 750 gb hard drive and was also very cheap and well built. Have stored all the Tales of the unexpected, Buffy , Angel, Hammer house ect and still have loads of space.
l also just got this for 45 quid for by the bed. The screen is a bit dinky but its got 120 gb hard drive, touch screen, tablet mode etc and the batt lasts 2 and a half hours in heavy use. The keyboard is good quality too. The only downer is the size of text is a bit teeny so aim for at least ten inch screens...http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/111117638661? ... 1439.l2649
