I'm selling off an HP Pavilion desktop. I used it as a Microsoft Exchange 2010 Server, and it would make a great home server! It's biggest shortcoming is that it can only accommodate one internal drive, but I upgraded it with a Silicon Image SiI 3132 2-port eSATA SoftRAID controller so it'll accommodate 2 x 5-bay external enclosures. With an Intel G630 2.7GHz dual core processor and 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, this will comfortably run WHS 2011 and probably do some video transcoding too. It's got a DVD +/- R/RW drive and I've used it (with SlySoft) to rip DVDs so you can rip media right on the box.

The desktop is less than a year old and has just under 3 months remaining on the manufacturer warranty. I paid $500 + tax for it, and am throwing in the SiI 3132 controller plus an APC Back-UPS ES550 uninterruptable power supply, eSATA 120GB hard drive (in a RocketFish eSATA/USB 2.0 enclosure), speakers and a flash drive. So there's well over $650 worth of gear here.

I'm asking $450 and if you're a US buyer (including APO/FPO), shipping is free. Shoot me a note if interested!

Note that I rebuilt it to Windows 7 Home Premium and then applied a Windows Anytime Upgrade license key so it will ship with Windows 7 Ultimate.
