    I know for a fact that many of you are Digg users, but for those who aren't:

    Some of my favorite comments:
    "Back the **** up! Is that a 3D AGP card in there?!"
    ~ Thrustmaster

    "I have that exact model with those same stickers still attached (no joke), and I can attest to the truth of their claim. It's sturdy and is the ideal height for a footrest or chairside drink stand."
    ~ consterXnation

    "If it was a Celeron, it was obsolete before it even came out. They could barely manage to run Microsoft Word."
    ~ jeremymccurdy

    "It still computes doesn't it?"
    ~ virtorio

    A reply to that: "Horse and buggy still transport passengers dont they......"
    ~ Spire3660

    A computer just like this was discussed here about three years ago by user ryodoan, and he commented on that the "Never Obsolete" statement as well.

    I like how the machine is practically mint, BUT the cover near the bottom is skewed :D

    LOL, I was just given one of those recently. Funny how being the geek of the family means everyone thinks I want their old crap.

    Been trying to decide if I just want to wipe it and throw it out or if I want to make a server out of it. Piece of crap doesn't even have built in ethernet though.
