I love when these dell refurbs go on sale but you got to watch out for one MAJOR setback. I had to learn the hard way. You CANNOT access the bios menu. They are installed with Dell's proprietary system and when they go off lease they don't install back the original bios menu. It was extremely frustrating knowing so. Good luck

Would any of these make a decent htpc?
Yes, I'm currently using mine as one. No issues playing 1080p DD encoded or DTS encoded mkvs

How so.

I have an off lease 7010 and pressing F12 brings up the menu that allows you to get into the BIOS.

Thanks for your feedback. I'd better look for an affordable 4K displayed GPU to install in my current PC. I'm not playing game. Just want to watch 4K movies on my Samsung 65 inches TV KS8500. Thanks again.

Can anyone confirm using a 1050ti in one of the small form factor ones? Is the PCI Express slot limited to 25W or can it handle the 1050ti?

Ha! I'd prefer the 40% discount! Do you think it'll be back tomorrow?

Guys, the sale was for Thanksgiving, and it ran through that date.

Pretty sure the Halloween Sale will include monitors, but likely not next weeks.
