This is not my cup of tea (I like newer models), but this CPU is on par with the very recent Pentium G3220 and the still popular Core2 Quad Q6600. From the pictures, it is very expandable for an SFF model.

People say things like this. But just because it can't be replicated right now does not mean it's irrelevant.

Knowing historical prices can be useful.
That was a great deal. If it can't be replicated now, it's irrelevant. This is also an excellent deal. Might be a bit power-hungry for an HTPC though it has plenty of beef. Nice specs for everyday machine. Few people today need anything more powerful than this.

Nice office machine.
Any "newer" machine with Win 7 Pro for under $100 is a bargain.

CPU has a PassMark of around 3000.

In comparison, the i5 2400 that I got in a recent NewEgg deal for about $40 more, is almost DOUBLE (5900)

And this one has a 250GB HD, vs a 500GB HD for the one I got.

Not a bad deal, if you want to keep your cost under $100, but not the greatest.

FYI, 95W processor, this will use a relatively large amount of power for an HTPC and run warm.

what computer did you get for $40? I'm in no rush to buy today, so I can keep an eye for this kind of deal again.

That wasn't $40 more, it was $70 more. Big difference, almost twice the price of this one: $150 vs. $80. Hmm...

Plus, it was a unicorn kind of deal. Something that happens very, very rarely. Normally, you can't even find a Pentium-based PC at that price. I was the one who posted it. What am I supposed to do: retire now because it may not happen again anytime soon?

There's a difference between historical prices and one-off deals. congrats on picking up a great deal. But it's not a common one at all. Historical pricing is irrelevant unless it reveals that there's a reasonable chance the price will repeat.

It might not be. odds are these are just rebadged desktops that were already used in a business/school environment on lease. Refurbished HDD means the HDD was borked and then fixed up. All parts might be completely fine, just used.

Not how that works. 95W is maximum pull, not the constant draw. An HTPC won't be doing any tasks that stress this out unless you're transcoding multiple high bitrate streams simultaneously (though CPU probably can't handle more than 2). What's more important and not revealed in the max TDP is efficiency. This CPU may require 45W to perform HTPC tasks that more modern processors might use only 30W to complete. (Numbers completely made up.)
