Not a bad deal:

Spend the cash-back dosh on more memory and disks and you have a neat little home server.

I'm biased towards freenas.... and have been on the prowl for cheap sata disks. I picked up one of these de-commissioned appliances on the cheap & plan on using it for a freenas boxen.

Not a high power system here, but not totally pathetic either. good for kids, folding, or general web surfing.
