UPDATE: No rebate necessary now as it's $60.

link [newegg.com]

The included RAM is $40 if you were to purchase it, so (and it gets 5 Eggs with 1,062 reviews so it's not junk), so for an extra $20 you get a MB/CPU combo...

$10 rebate link [newegg.com]

I didn't see this posted (and "yes" I searched).

This is obviously for HTPC (more XBMC / OpenELEC [openelec.tv] I'm not sure about Netflix or HULU), MAME or "grandma" use, but it's a good start for a low-power usage client. The DOA reviews concern me a little, but there are many NewEgg reviewers that shouldn't be doing anything with computers, so I'll take a chance on this.

Guys, what would be a good cpu a few steps above this? I'm trying to build a basic (cheap) lab computer (3 actually) for Server 2008/12 that won't be too expensive or suck up too much power.
Wouldn't this be good deal for a server? The ram alone is what you would be after, for the server. Although, you can find AR 8GB ram, for around $25 on occasion.

How this deal compares to the FP one

"Foxconn Mini/Booksize Barebone System: AMD Dual Core E-350 1.6GHz, Radeon HD 6310 w/ HDMI, WiFi N + 64GB OCZ Agility 4 Solid State Drive (SSD) $110 after $10 rebate"

of last month?

Seems like that one has included the memery also, and the Harddrive and Case/PSU. Let alone the gift 64GB SSD.

This deal has almost the same hardware specs with that deal.

Any comments? Is it a better deal than that or not?

Thanks.
Good point. This one still needs case, psu, HD, wifi, purchases ... if you don't already have those. Which would pretty much put the price point at about the same.

Not the least to say that I have yet to find the C-50 and C-60 in desktop motherboard form factors, unfortunately.

AFAIK last deal didn't come with memory, but IMO it was the better deal.

Hmm, pull the trigger? I'm kind of turned off that this was posted since 6am and has not been OOS/DEAD.

Gees, I got the Foxconn nanopc last month for $110AR with the 60gb ssd last month. Played youtube and it couldn't play do 720p. Is there a special setting?
Did you download the newest version of flash and turn on hardware acceleration? That's what the gpu is for.

I've had a $10 Biostar rebate go MIA too. It is in their online system as accepted and awaiting payment. Been that way for the past YEAR! It was for a TH61 ITX motherboard.

So, consider this a $70 deal. Mad

You have to keep tracking Biostar rebate and e-mail or call them several times. They won't send out rebate until you contact them.
I had 4 rebates and all need to call them and e-mail them several times. Keep photo copies everything because they will ask for it.

In for 1.

I will use it as an XBMC box. Hopefully running entirely off a USB stick hdd and playing media stored on a local NAS via wifi.

I was all set to buy it till I read the reviews at New Egg. Plus, what's the big deal on the price? The regular price is only $10 more without the rebate, $79 regular instead of $69. That is not fantastic savings IMO. And everyone is saying not to count on the rebate even arriving to bring it down to $60.

Think I'll wait for something with better reviews and more than just $10 off with an unreliable rebate for another $10.
Besides the Black Friday deals are only a week away.

It includes (for free) highly-rated RAM that would normally cost $40...

Yeah it does say "limited Time" on the memory. Good point, I thought that was included at the regular price too.

But the reviews on the MB are still bad.

Biostar is really committed to the A68I-350. Newegg likely has stock in-depth.

Plus, this is really a niche' market. Most people (including most Slickdealers) are thinking "I can get 10x the power for just 2-3x the price.". But for the always-on and/or htpc purposes, it's a good deal (and lower-power is often a good choice because it means lower electric bills).

Looking for a desktop to basically run quickbooks, surf net, and stream media. Does it support dual displays?
