That said, the HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 boxes are fantastic little prebuilt boxes that are very close in form factor to what you have.



Now I'm in doubt if go with a New HP where I have to also find the license and some HD or go for an used one, older but already with Win7 Pro and 2T http://www.subito.it/vi/189342896.htm

Yeah, you'd likely need to get a license as well. 


And that used system is not a bad option either, actually. 




My only issue with it is that it's an older AMD Athlon II (1.3GHz) CPU.  If your'e not doing much on it, then that's fine. But if you want to do media stuff on it, it may be underpowered.
