Re: I created the cheapest computer!
pretty decent system in my opinion. Not a gaming rig but good for basic day to day tasks I'd say, and for an OS you could put a free version of linux or solaris or something. I'm thinking about getting an old, cheap laptop for linux stuff (something like a P3 or possibly older celeron).
anyways that's neat! I think the cheapest I've built on newegg was in the 400 dollar range.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
