Default This is interesting

I just purchased a computer that does not have a place to attach a power cord. This is a HP Elite 8000 USFF Computer.

I bet I could get a bunch of monies for this puppy since the connection was forgot ton about at the computer factory.

This is the first time in my life I ever seen a mistake like this.

The power connector is the little round port just to the right of the VGA port. The HP Elite 8000 USFF uses an external power supply, basically a power brick like a laptop uses.

Here's a link to a power supply that should work with it:

This one looks OK. The seller has a better feedback rating.IMG_5281.jpg

Wish that was the case. Just that I never saw a desktop computer with a power plug in like that. I have computers with that sort of plug. But, those are all portabke computers.

This looks like a poor attempt by HP to reduce the size of their desktop in this case!

That is ok. As long as the computer did what I needed to do and it did once I uodated from Linux Ubuntu to Linux Mint and was able to access ROOT mode so I could move some files to another location. Worked great.
