Looks like.. pretty dedicated hardware. They seem to always be sold without s/ware. Can they be converted to PC?

Why would you want to?

Why would i want too?.. they bring out new ones all the time. Means old ones are almost out of date as soon as they appear. They are loaded with goodies. They are cheap. Why not?

Its usually the video capabilities that hold it back, other wise theres no reason why you couldnt aslong you consider the onboard hardware like raid that might not have xp supported drivers.

5You'll find the bulk of them are leftover form scheduled replacement (usually 3 years). Most will be missing their hard disks (because they will likely be pulled and physically destroyed) and replacements can get pricey. Also not all of them are even x86 compatible, quite a few sparcs on here.
