$125 per only in quantity but those are the slow A6's

I didn't see any good 5 lots on the A10's but there's the A10's in 10 lots same 8GB 256GB for $160ea Lot of 10 HP EliteDesk mini 705g3 A10-8770E 2.8GHz 8GB DDR4 256GB SSD HDD | eBay

If you really want to go cluster max 160GB of memory 2.5TB of SSD across 10 nodes that'll idle under 120W total is cool. Maybe even useful as cheap clients.

Not to hate on AMD, but I'm just not a fan of their CPUs. I hear the 6500T cpu is desirable, but curious how this would compare? Ever since seeing these mini PCs, i realize it would be a great way to upgrade my parents machines as well as build a small cluster.

the A10's have semi decent GPUs, a small step up from an integrated intel.
for instance I've got an older, higher wattage A10-7890k that can play fortnite somewhat reasonably.
the little embedded A10's seem to have less oomph though.

Not the most powerful things, but have a decent amount of power like the thin clients that get repurposed. Definitely a nice low-powered cluster, especially since they still have a factory HP warranty too. I just wish they would have listed if there is a coa/license tied to each one and if they include just one power adapter with the lot or 5.

Someone really needs to figure out how to mod the bios on these things to make them accept Zen-cored AM4s. The performance improvement would be massive.
