It's called optiplex for a reason.

Ps: someone had to make this joke, right?

As someone who wants to get into that... is this good for it? What about storage for hard drives etc? Says there is no Wifi in this? A bit confused about how one would use this for a plex server since I'm very new to this. Any advice would be great!

Why would anyone pay more than $50 for this, you can get refurb mini PCs at least from the DDR4 era for less than $100.

IKR...these units were released in 2013,under $100 may be slick for some needing cheap unit.

It's a major tl;dr, best to Google it. You could setup a Plex server on a pi depending on what your trying to stream, what hardware the client is using, number of concurrent connections, etc etc. I'm not saying go buy a pi to setup Plex on I'm just saying there are a lot of variables.

I bought a similar one but "renewed" from Amazon for $156.00 a little while ago with free shipping.

It's now at $174.00 w/free shipping.

Just noticed the one on Amazon only had 8GB RAM.

Agreed, what's right for one person won't be for another. Going to depend heavily on current / future content and HDD requirements, quality, concurrent streams, etc

You dont need much to run a Plex server. I ran my server for a few years on only 8GB of RAM and a G4400 CPU with no issues. Hard drive space will probably be your largest expense. Personally, I would get something with a much more current CPU or build your own if possible. You can build a decent budget server for under $300.
