The Micro Machine

Goals: - Lubuntu for OS - Connect to work via VPNC/Remmina - Web browsing, including multiple open Facebook tabs, view YouTube videos - Retro-gaming, mostly via PlayOnLinux - Very low-requirements games on Steam - 4K @ 60Hz capable - MUST STAY UNDER $300 (including taxes, shipping, and, in the case of purchase from brick-and-mortar stores, gasoline and tolls).

All prices listed include TOTAL cost to purchase (shipping, tax, gasoline for driving, tolls, etc), and are the prices paid when purchased in early April, 2019.

This will replace the existing Haswell Pentium system with 4GB RAM and Intel integrated video.

Better bang for the buck could have been had with a larger SSD, but, I wanted to very strictly stay under the $300 limit. Prices shown are NET, including taxes/shipping/gas/tolls.

Compatibility: No issues or incompatibilities found.
