Make sure you get 8GB of ram, should only cost $10 for 4GB.

There were three sizes of the M93p; tiny, SFF and tower. The Tiny's would be a no for sure, the SFF would work with a low profile card, the tower would work with a card that isn't too deep, however they use 280W power supplies with proprietary connectors so you'll want to stick with fairly low power GPUs.

Dang, that is a really good deal, would happily clear their inventory or fill up my car at this price. Too bad I'm no where close.

Are there any links? So I just go in tomorrow with cash and this can happen?

Not sure how this works.

I see lots of bids on them on the BC Auction site. Anywhere I could get more info would be great!

The ones I saw were all SFF, pretty much a standard desktop. No huge graphics card will go in there. Motherboard has one VGA and two DisplayPort outputs.

The cash and carry stuff isn't online anywhere. You just have to show up at 4234 Glanford on Friday (not sure of the hours but certainly 10-2 at least). When you walk in, there's an office/cashier on the right hand side. The computers are just past that. Keyboards and mice and power cords are in boxes on the floor. You have to sift through to find ones that aren't filthy.

Cash and credit cards accepted. Their debit machine works sometimes and sometimes not.

BTW, they had a few Thinkpad T540 laptops around too, for around $250. I didn't pay close attention to the price because the touchpad on that model is too far to the left IMO.

Thank you! Live just around the corner. Always been curious about the place. You can go in anytime and just look at stuff up for auction? They just have a tech hanging about that will add ram for you on demand?

Then other stuff they do cash and carry Fridays? My wallet tho.

I thought I saw 9-3. Might go in tomorrow.

What is considered a "huge" graphics card? I want to transfer over the old one (at least 6-7 years old) I have in my Core 2 Duo PC. It's active cooled but I think quite small otherwise.

As for proprietary power connectors, no reasonable way to use another p/s?

Saanich is a very ho-hum place, these would be flying in and around the GTA.

I think this is just a warm deal at best, due to no HD, Windows 7 and only 4GB of RAM. Is there built-in wi-fi? Is power adaptor included. I'm thinking, no. Wi-fi is a cheap fix. If you need an adaptor, be careful if you try to use a generic one, rather than a genuine Lenovo. I bought a generic adaptor for a M93 Tiny that I bought off of eBay, but it caused the computer to shut down randomly. At first I thought it was the computer. But then I tried a genuine Lenovo adaptor and problem went away.
