    Need a new computer

    Have an old dell DImension going on 12 years old. Useless to do anything with

    Looking at a few Dell 5810 workstations used on Ebay, around 650 to 700 range. Anyone buy one of those used?

    The only good solid state amp is a dead solid state amp. Unless it sounds really good, then its OK.

    I searched refurbished workstations and came up with dell refurbs, newegg, server monkey and a few more.
    They all look fairly high on desktop stuff.
    I run laptops, cause they fit me better, and are much cheaper.
    Only thing, they don't last as long.
    I keep some in rotation, and try to purchase this time of year when there are sales.
