    Yes, that stuff gets cheaper all the time.
    Depending on what you wants do with it, but if you use it only for surfing email and text writing a raspberry pi is even much more affordable for this kind of work.

    Re: Low cost new desktop

    I actually do have a Raspberry pi driving a small display. I'm really planning to use it as part of a UV LED exposure box for alt-process, but I fell into the typical nerd trap and decided that I needed a GUI to set the time so I started playing with GUI authoring tools like Tkinter and even got hold of a community (ie free) version of QT, which might be a bit of overkill considering that it's used to develop the GUI's for automobiles, and dived down the rabbit hole.

    Oh well, it's all a learning experience I guess. But the R Pi does indeed make a fine net surfing system.

    Not sure when I'll actually build the exposure box.

    I think we are somehow on the same track. My idea is to build a user friendly f-Stop timer.

    Photoshop will be to much for this tiny computer.

    Were these really necessary? Do they work faster ?

    I have a laptop-screen sized mini-tv with HDMI input, sound, and a built-in battery (plus it can do over the air TV) which I used with a Raspberry Pi 400 on a trip recently. Actually lighter than my laptop. Fast enough for email, web updates, some basic GIMP image work, and writing documents. Couldn't set it on my lap, of course!
