Fudjitsu bargain -- by Xylon 2017

From Savvy Humans Know Tech

This was one of those great buys when you buy something and it works perfectly out of the box.

I bought it to be a budget computer when FreedComputer was a shop. I got it off ebay for around £50 and it just worked perfectly with Free Software straight away! All I had to do was add a wireless card from ThinkPenguin, and an optical drive. Total cost of machine and upgrades was just over £100.

Very quiet running, nice case design with convenient port locations.

The only problem is there's a BIOS password which I don't know, but that didn't stop me putting a fully Free operating system on it.
