This item has been Sold.

Most of a computer from 2011, still relevant today for many folks. Not suitable for cutting edge gaming, but outstanding for retro-gaming, school or office use, and many other uses.


  • Intel Core i7 2600 Processor – Left in Motherboard for safety.
  • ASUS P8 Z68-V Motherboard supporting Sata and USB-3.

Windows 10 was installed and has been installed a couple of times on the system over the years. Windows 10 will almost certainly be activated if installed again. However since Microsoft Activation requirements are opaque, no guarantee is provided. Install the latest windows 10 from a download of the installer to a Thumbdrive as described here.

Of course this system supports many Linux Distros including Linux Mint – my favorite – and many others.
