Nt sure on the question. It's a computer. Use it, mate? Do you need troubleshooting help to turn it on or open the lid?

The problem with the 2013s is the limitations on internal components. And that really to continue using one today, you more or less have to get an egpu.

That said, you can upgrade the processor to a 12 core. Move to 128gb of RAM, stick in 1tb+ of flash storage and get a Radeon VII in an egpu and the system will fly. Well, as well as a 7 year old machine can fly anyway with the limitation of TB2.

That is really too much investment into a trash can.

Ia even more confused, are these servers?
Weren't these computers? Why are they in a serger rack mounting hardware? Why are they in pairs? Do they connect like sli or whatnot?

Recycling bins for plastic nd metal?

They just took the desktop and made a rack mount case for it. I don't think they are tied together at all. Probably just two independent servers.

These are still pretty expensive, way more than what they should cost given the performance. That said though I have to admit that I am keeping an eye out for a reasonably priced one. Its a cool bit of tech and can still pack a decent punch.
