Hi all. I am looking to get a Windows device that I plan to run 24/7. All it needs to do is load a browser and run videos. That is literally all I will be using it for. I really only want to spend around 25-$50 if possible. It also needs to use as little energy as possible. Anyone have any ideas?
You can probably do some dumpster diving and score one for free.
e.g. I scored a perfectly fine 2008~ish Mac Pro with some targeted dumpster diving myself. Someone had thrown it away only because the GPU had burnt out from excessive dust build up. Definitely better than a "trashputer" *cough*gamersnexus*cough* for $25-50.
If you don't have a dumpster near you full of computers that could potentially still work, the used market like ebay or craigslist is a pretty good place to score old office desktops like old dell 530's.
