I was wondering what geekzone members think.

My 5 year old 2.6 celeron PC is nearing the end of its life.
As it has been upgraded to 1Gb ram and 500 sata HDD - I was thinking i'd stick a second HDD on and turn it into a NAS.

Therefore what to replace my PC with.?

I was thinking of buying  a good screen with small form PC so I could keep doing upgrades but I was impressed with an HP all in one 3GHZ pc. I realised ALL in ones are expensive, not upgradeable and limited performance but they are suitable for the use I put it through, i.e. word apps and internet.
I dont do gaming as use Xbox for that with cat5 cable to PC for media streaming.

Any thoughts on the way to go?


Cheers

You'll have exactly the same experience with a SFF PC as you would with an AIO. Except the AIO will cost more, be worth less, and be way less versatile down the track.

You won't be turning an AIO into a NAS in a few years :p

I 100% agree with your comments.

FYI - The advantage I was thinking AIO has is tidyness of one unit on desk.

For the SFF - i'd still need to keep it near for those few times you use a optical drive.
