There are two Goodwill's in my area. Every other Saturday they have a sale where everything in the store is half off.

I found the ThinkCentre at a more independent store in my area. Most of the things I've posted about were found at Goodwill stores.

Just replaced the aging fans in my home server with three of them. Pretty good for the price. The value pack with 5 fans was under $30.

Well that was quick.... Just replaced the Pure Wings 2 1600rpm (too noisy imo) for this :D:D:

I'm impressed.... I have it connected to my 3 step fan controller of my case with the controller at medium speed, nearly inaudible at this speed with my other fans.:clap:

Its taken a year and almost finished with the upgrade. Last step is waiting to make a decision on either Ryzen 3xxx or whatever Intel releases. Should know in a few months then I will build the PC and be finished for a long time(I hope). The case is a Enermax Sabaray White. My long time companion, a 2013 Intel system is being retired.

I bought Meizu 16th, elegant and powerful smartphone for 335 € total. Brand new, unopened, unused, unlocked, dual-SIM and global ROM. It's a 6GB / 64 GB model, because global white versions are only available with this configuration. Phone is very well built, cameras are excellent, dimensions are OK (although I would like under 145 mm length and under 70 mm width) and weight is only 152g which makes it one of the lightest on the market. Screen is really amazing, 6.0" Samsung AMOLED FHD+ with 402 dpi and smartphone has built-in fingerprint sensor behind the screen. Speakers are really loud and sound quality is the best I've heard so far on smartphones. The phone is made out of glass and metal, so there are literally no plastic surfaces on the exterior.

Downsides - well, it has a few, but none of them are crucial. First, it has Gorilla glass 5 (like 90% high-end phones on the market), which is quite weak and offers low resistance against scratches. Yep, really. Old Gorilla glass 2 & 3 were tougher. So, a screen protector and a case are a must have. Second, it has 3010 mAh battery, but if you are a rational user who isn't spending 24/7 on a smartphone with GPS on, 100% brightness and such, it can easily last for 3+ days without charging. My previous phone had under 2600 mAh battery and on average it lasted 4 days without charging. Third, FlyMe OS, which is Meizu's "modification" of stock Android needs a few minor stability improvements in a few areas, but I've seen such or even worse bugs on Xiaomi, Oppo, Lenovo and Samsung as well.

Besides that, the phone seems really amazing and I absolutely recommend it.

They are still available on meizuworld, gearbest, aliexpress, ebay, amazon, oppomart and probably a few more. Prices can vary - greatly. You just have to be careful to buy a global version and clearly mention that to the seller. There are 8GB / 128 GB global versions, but only in black and blue-green color and some 50 € more. These aren't any faster, except that they offer more storage since there is no slot for a micro SD card. For me, 64 GB is more than enough, since I don't use smartphone as a replacement for PC or a laptop nor as a primary camera when I want to shot something interesting or important. :D

I see (as an example) that the newer Samsung S10's there's two versions, one for the US (Snapdragon) and the rest of the world has another model which is slower.. Not really so fair me thinks.... still, my phone contract is coming up soon, I'm not sure what I'd like to go to next.. 64Gb with the OS, a few add on programs and such and then you can be at 40Gb free... Since everything is going nuts with mega pixels, a few 8k videos and such like it soon will be eaten.. Camera would be very important to me, carrying around a DSLR everywhere isn't an option when something that's a bit bigger than a credit card in length, that can fit in your pocket.. Much easier :)

Be nice to hear how you get on with the phone in like 6 months time, just to find out if it's gone well or not..... :)
