Hi GZers - up for sale is a bit of a project of mine.


It started out as one of these -




But using the guide here - - I have installed Windows 10 on it. (Via flashing Seabios)


This project came about because I didn't want to pay the equivalent price for a i5/i7 NUC.


I have swapped out the original 16GB SSD for a Samsung 250GB M.2 drive and removed the write protected screw but otherwise hardware wise it is as standard.




It has spent the last year running as my Plex server but my Dad's work has recently upgraded their PC's from Lenovo Tiny PC's so I was able to score one of those with a desktop processor in it.


It has performed well but the one downside is you need to run the program "Speedfan" to run the internal fan. Otherwise the CPU throttles to 0.8GHz (slow).




Is it worth $400 to any GZer out there? - I don't want to sell it via TradeMe as it requires a little bit of "technical know how / common sense".




I will include the Chromebox - AC Adapter and a Flirc USB dongle. The windows 10 is licensed but I can't remember which key I used on it so it will be restored using the windows 10 "Reset Tool".
