HP Pavilion 300-240 Mini Desktop
HP Stream Mini Desktop

Get it while you can!

This machine is only about $250.  HP has already discontinued the previous “Stream” model we recommended — it seems they were not making enough profit on it.  It comes with a bundled Windows 10 license so that may be of interest if you need a Windows machine in your computing environment.

This is a very inexpensive, very small, low power machine.  Thanks to the magic of modern (and very fast) SSD drives, the computer is quite useful in office environments, as a TV set-top-box (for watching Netflix, Hulu, your ripped DVDs, etc.) or for other light computing requirements.  [ Dimensions: 5.71 x 5.71 x 2.13 inches ]

With adequate ram (8gb or 16gb) there are not many tasks at which this machine will not excel.  However, this is not a computer you should consider for professional video editing or playing the latest high frame rate video games.  It includes a basic USB keyboard and mouse.  With an efficient processor, the fan can run very slowly and this machine is virtually silent.
