I was browsing and was about to buy the Dell wyse 3040 due to raspberry 4 shortage, but the limited storage (8GB) was a little frustration.
I looked around and found this Lenovo ThinkCentre M600 - 10G8S07S00 - Pentium Dual Core 1.6GHz - 8GB - 500GB | eBay
It comes with power cable (I message seller before to make sure it came with power cable)
Both had windows pro sticker on it
J3710 (listing says it is a 2 cores, but it is actually 4 cores cpu) Intel® Pentium® Processor J3710 (2M Cache, up to 2.64 GHz) - Product Specifications | Intel
8GB DDR3 sodimm
500GB 2.5"
has a slot for m.2 sata spec I think
has another m.2 for wifi if you want to add one later. You will need to check if it has white/blacklist

Edit:
2022/07/07 they have more for sale now Lenovo ThinkCentre M600 - 10G8S07S00 - Pentium Quad Core 1.6GHz - 8GB - 500GB | eBay

This one here is a decent alternative - although not as cheap - it has a better CPU - and a nice "expansion" chassis on top:

I am guessing you can rip out the cd-rom and dump in a SATA drive instead.

Nice find! I'm sure a drive adapter would work or even something like an icydock that makes dual drives possible, but I think that drive is over usb3 so there is that to consider too. I wonder what the max ram is on these and if there is some sort of m2 or minipcie slot.

ThinkCentre M92p Desktop | Full-featured Micro Desktops | Lenovo Denmark - im guessing you can get 32 gigs or more but at least 16 gigs according to specs.

And also - specs says both SSD+SATA - whatever that means - so im thinking there is both a m.2 slot and a regular SATA connector. Which makes it even better.

If you are lucky, there are still deals on Ebay now.
End of 2021, picked up 2 x HP 800 G3 mini with I5-7500T, 4gb ram with a hard drive
for a sum of $88 each out the door.
That's less than what I paid for my OptiPlex 3040 and that came with a G3900T :(

Here is a interesting Ebay buy for me
Dell 5050 mini with I5-7600T $67.
Seller's listing , it implies that the Dell would not power up
It turned out the Dell mini worked just fine, no problem, the listing should be "No Power Adapter"

They do have some nice deals in their website. Like this. Sadly out of reach for us EU plebeians.
Thank you for posting this - link is dead now but they had a HP 260 G2 mini with a Skylake Pentium dual-core, 4 gb ram, 500 gb HDD listed on their website for $17. It arrived today shipped for less than $40. Came with the power supply and activated Windows 10 Pro with a digital key on the motherboard. Like the OP, I was looking at the Wyse 3040's for a low cost, low power RPi alternative. I must say I am really impressed with this device given the size. Would definitely buy from this vendor again.

M73 is gone already... ;)

^^^ Was going to post this yesterday but their site took a long time to 'verify' before letting me double-check it was gone. o_O

that's really cool! CPU might not have enough grunt for my needs though, and not quite up to snuff for video transcoding either. too bad.
