It's not that fast but you could write apps. You would not be gaming on it or more specifically battlefield games or writing an action game. Good for run of the mill apps and such.
Im interested in buying a cheap computer aside of my laptop so I can use it sometimes when on weekends.
Specs: HP Compaq 6005 Pro USFF Desktop AMD Athlon II x2 3.2GHz 4GB DDR3 250GB HD for 100usd after shipping.
I'll upgrade it to 8gb, 250gb ssd.
I'm wondering how good the cpu is considering the price. I'm run Visual Studio, Eclipse, Unity and more for programming. Will it survive?
