Pros: - Inexpensive - Green/low power consumption - Solid build, typical ThinkCentre - Surprisingly quick - Runs Win7 just fine
Cons: - Small drive - Takes forever to boot
Other Thoughts: I can think of a dozen uses for this, but here are some ideas: - Lightweight web server - Workstation for entry level user - Workstation for a startup, non-for-profit, or other lean organization - Single purpose workstation for basic office users (email, browsing, documents, etc.) - Computer for your grandparents
I bought this to donate to our children's preschool. They just needed a computer to use with their educational CD-ROM's. I wanted a computer that could stand the rigors of a bunch of 4-5 year old children. The keyboard and mouse are basic, but functional. The ThinkCentre itself is incredibly solid.
Thankfully, it wasn't loaded up with all the usual Lenovo software/bloatware, so it actually runs fast, for a disk-based system at least (haven't had one of those in years). I disabled automatic updates and did not install a virus scanner, as they are not connected to a network. I loaded TuxPaint, GCompris, and Starfall and they all run fast. They should be good for a few years at least.
At the discounted price that I paid, about $170, this was a no brainer.
