Re: [vox] WTB Used Computer

I don't have a box to sell, but here are my thoughts.

I have been eyeing the ULV processors. Power consumption is low and
performance is good.  They use DDR-3, so the bus is fast. The following
system looks pretty good, but it only has a 250Gig drive. It prbably
takes a laptop drive.
