I didn't see any tiny units on the auction site. Nothing in the OP suggests "tiny".

Too bad -- I like the tinys. I have three, stacked on my desk. Really well made. Lenovo still issues firmware updates -- this is not a consumer-quality machine.
Yup everyone is talking about the tiny but deal is actually for the mini tower desktop. Apples and oranges really.

Update as of half an hour ago on Glanford Ave ...

M93p desktops (as originally posted, no hard drive) - $90 - 8 in stock
M93p towers (including 500GB hard drive) - $125 - 6 in stock
M92p desktops (i5-3470, no hard drive) - $75 - 30+ in stock

Extra RAM, which was $7.50 for a 4GB stick, is out of stock.

P.S. A couple of big lots (80-90) of mixed M92p and M93p desktops went at auction last night, with the M93p apparently worth about $60 in quantity. There is a lot of 29xM93p which will be auctioned off on Tuesday night, and a 10x and 30x of M92p too.

I have a bunch of SFF running Core2Duo that I'm still deploying right now.
I plan on picking up a couple of Tinys to replace some of the more used ones (need more horsepower).

Sometimes you just need a small computer for one reason or another.
+1. My LAN file server is a Lenovo M55, which is vintage 2006 with an XP CoA on it. (Runs Ubuntu server) It looks like it's never going to die.

I have a mini pi that monitors earthquake at home and send me text msg all the time :)
Most of mine are HTPCs right now.
There's also a couple of torrent machines for linux ISOs (I don't want to fill up my nice expensive VMs that have "good" storage) with it.
Ever need a test machine outside of a VM for whatever?
I also keep one kicking around for flashing devices.

It's great because I just keep an image on my file server so when I need a fresh computer I just PXE boot, flash it, reboot, and have a fresh OS that's ready to go.
Since it's lightweight, I can go from off to OS in like 5 minutes.

I really like the idea about pxe booting and have a file server .( is it a Linux based?) Thank you

I also have one as pure vpn for myself while I travel to the otherside the globe where they have a wall...
Living in this big world, I have a little dream.

I think Windows might be able to do it too, but Linux is free.
I mean.. technically all you need is a TFTP server and a DHCP server that can give out a certain option code.

I love my PXE though. It's weird not having it now.
There's one at every location I manage.

Dropped by this afternoon to have a look.

What is new is HP Z400 towers with Xeon W3550, 12 GB, nVidia Qudro 600 for $150 (2 in stock, + pallet in the back for auction?) Is this a good price?

There's also

$75 Lenovo T500 T9400 Core2Duo laptops, 160 GB with 2 GB Ram (way too little, I guess)
$250 Lenovo T540P i5 4300M 4GB, no drive
$200 Lenovo T440 i5 4300U 4GB, no drive
Cream rises to the top. So does scum.

Went in today with intent to buy the HP Z400 but for $25 less, there was (just one) Lenovo ThinkCentre S30 that is supposed to have a 3.7 GHz Xeon ES1620, 16 GB RAM (in 2 x 8 GB sticks). Video card was a Quadro FX3700. Installing W10 now to see how it goes. Hope it is a better deal than the HP Z400.
