Bought 6 for a rancher cluster. This is a fantastic deal considering a bulk order with possible shipping discounts could be less than 20$ per unit

That is cheap. Is it 16GB of Ram, or SSD? A quick search turned up several that are 4GB of ram, and 16GB SSD. Didn't see any with 16GB of ram.

It's a 16gb Sata SSD, he doesn't state the ram, but the 16gb models come with 4gb of ram. I just sent him a message asking.

I was going to ask about the ram too. :D

Really nice find as these are basically the same as the Fujitsu S920, except no PCI slot. The processor in these is a bit dated and the gx-424 is quite a bit slower than the cpus in more modern thin clients:

Still, if these have 2x memory slots, you should be able to load them up to 16GB via 2x 8GB modules and even 32GB if you can find 2x16GB DDR3 SODIMMs cheap enough. I actually have a single pair of these and have 32GB in my Fujitsu.

If you like these, the Fujitsu S920 can also be a pretty decent deal since it already has a pcie slot that usually comes with a gpu in it. I really like mine.

He wasn't sure about the ram, but said nothing was pulled from the units as they area fresh enterprise pull, so they should have 4gb of ram. I paid 160+40$ shipping, I asked him about refunding shipping on a bulk order.

Got any response on combining the shipping cost? Or was the $40 after getting a refund for combined shipping?

I'm in for 2 of them, and I'll be using them as tiny proxmox nodes so that my main server has somewhere to move critical VM's.
I'll either do a 2 node HA with a qdevice, or go all in and try a tiny gluster setup :D

I also have a Wyse 7020, and M920q so I can do a quick comparison :)

Gone. Like the wind. Thanks STH :.)
It's The STH Effect™ (not actually trademarked, but looks cooler this way, lol) :) Making you want to buy what you don't need! :D

But the The STH Effect™ also works in another way--wiping out inventory so that there's none to buy!

And the third way The STH Effect™ works is to raise prices on otherwise great deals to the point they're not great anymore.

You can run; you can hide--but The STH Effect™ will find you. :D

These keep showing up at about the same prices when you include shipping, here is another set at $34 w/free shipping: Dell Wyse 5060 Thin Client AMD Quad Core 4GB RAM 16GB SSD Complete | eBay
If one is looking to buy a group of these in bulk, you might as well look at the Fujitsu S920 as it has a pcie slot with a gpu in it that you can remove and use to get the power supply or figure out something custom for power since it's quite flexible since it accepts 19v-20v power supplies. I've also verified that 2x8GB will get you 16GB and if you find the ultra rare 16GB module, 2x16GB will yield 32GB:

Tell me more about this little guy will you? I've been looking for a small emulation/arcade machine to run stuff up to PS3/Wii games, and it looks like I can use this with a GPU slot. Low profile right?

How powerful is this little guy comparable to say, an intel i3 third-gen (ivy-bridge) or something?

Or is it better to get like an old HP 8300 SFF and throw in a low-profile GPU?

Not for the PS3/Wii, you won't. The HP 8300 probably won't cut the mustard either.
RPCS3 needs at least a Zen2 (Ryzen 4000 series) or a Skylake connected to something like an AMD Polaris or an nVidia Maxwell. That'll require at least an HP t740.

As for the Wii...eeeeh, no. For something playable on a game like Super Mario Galaxy you would need at least a Kaby Lake or a Ryzen, and if you want BOTW? That's probably Ryzen 2 or an Ice/Tiger lake. If you are dealing with Gamecube with multiple on-the-fly shader recompilation like Rogue Squadron 2, that would be Ryzen at the very least as well. Even for playable PSP games you'll need at least a Haswell Mobile.

For something like the GX-424CC (embedded version of the AMD A8-6410 Beema laptop APU)? It probably runs like a Sandy bridge i5-2520M or an Ivy Bridge i5-3317U. Not really enough for anything heavier than, say, N64/Dreamcast emulation. That GPU onboard? It's GCN2 based. Probably okay for PS2, PSP or N64 games, but anything heavier for emulation and it'll not work well.

can it be used as docker host or mini file server with a usb drive attached 24x7?

Absolutely. I have 2 of them and have them running 24/7 as a proxmox node and a debian server that is my qdevice and glusterfs arbiter.

They come with a sata module installed that you could upgrade and then you can also use the "wan" port to install another nvme ssd (at PCI x1 speed)
If you wanted a bit more storage the Wyse 7020 will let you do 1 x sata module, 1 x nvme ssd through "wan" port, and a normal sata port from motherboard
