Deal Details

If you didn't get in on the previous popular deal, here is a chance to get an upgraded model for only $12 more. You get a slightly faster CPU and an extra 2GB of memory. It's a super solid deal for a basic yet versatile HTPC. The nicely looking SFF case and HDMI out make it a very attractive budget solution for the living room.

I got one for a family member for $145 AR the previous time it was posted here. You really can't beat the value.

Refurbished: Gateway SX Series AMD Dual-Core Processor 6GB DDR3 500GB HDD Capacity Desktop PC Windows 8 64-Bit SX2110G-UW23 (DT.GEPAA.002) [newegg.com]

$169.99 - $10 MIR [newegg.com] - 10% Promo Code MASTERPASS = $142.99 + Free Shipping

Specs:
  • AMD Dual-Core Processor E1-1500(1.48GHz)
  • 6GB DDR3 Memory
  • 500GB Hard Drive

  • DVD Burner
  • Media Card Reader
  • Gigabit Ethernet LAN

This is a HTPC, to put it into perspective, an apple TV cost $100, ROKU 80-100$, WD $100-200$, this will play any file type, stream any and everything while allowing you to expand the hard drive all things those media players dont do for what $40 more then an ATV, ROKU, WD MEDIA Player...

I made this comment in the past thread, and wrote a generally long post about the downsides of this CPU.

However, people are saying the GPU is pretty strong and they can play any profile of 1080p blu ray rips on it.

The conclusion i've come to is there really isn't anything better for the price. This is, however, a laptop processor. And one used in very very cheap ass laptops too.

I really wish there was a bay trail atom version, and the deal was on that.

I would not call that "upgraded." Both of those CPU's would be almost indistinguishable. Again, HTPC playback or light use and this will work great.

No transcoding, no Crysis @ 4K resolution, etc, etc.

Netbook CPU at best. But yes, when properly configured, the GPU rocks.

Rather than just saying "the cpu's junk", let's post the benchmark [cpubenchmark.net] so people can judge themselves.

Does this computer have enough hardware muscle to send and receive email? Yup. To visit websites? Sure. To permit one to listen to the occasional .mp3 file, watch a DVD of season 2 of "The Big Bang Theory," or play an exciting game of solitaire? You betcha.

Which is to say, it does almost everything which a significant percentage of people actually do on their computers.

Yeah, it's probably a terrible choice for someone who's into gaming. But in the real world, there are LOTS of people for whom this computer (or pretty much any desktop computer made in this century) is more than adequate.

Heck, connect a Samsung S2 phone to a full size keyboard, mouse, and monitor, and it'd be able to do pretty much everything a significant percentage of people do on their desktop or laptop computers (and more). And I'm guessing this Gateway computer's got "more horses under the hood" than does a circa 2011 smartphone.

Just because it's a POS doesn't mean it's ideal for an HTPC. Some of us actually transcode video on our HTPCs. A POS is still a POS irrespective of the price or the suggested purpose. And maybe you wanna try "Media Player" rather than "HTPC" next time. There is more than a subtle difference.

Any idea on the motherboard being used? Can the CPU be upgraded? If not, is it easy to upgrade CPU/MOBO? I need a good HTPC. Willing to spend some money on the CPU.

You may have a great HTCP (whatever that is!) but you won't have a great HTPC. You may have a good media player... that just might handle 1080p content.

Really? I happen to have a HTPC with Linux on it. It can handle any video format, play blu ray (if I wanted), netflix, hulu, etc... And it can handle just about any content.

Frankly, Windows 8 would be too much of a headache to be a viable HTPC. It's a resource hog, need to get virus protection, deal with the start screen everytime.... I'd wipe it and put a more suitable OS on there for sure.
