    My Lenovo T400 died (1-3-3-1 beep, tried everything to fix it, believe it to be a system board problem). So now I am left with my Core 2 Duo P8600, 4gb of ddr3 ram, and a hard drive, with nothing to do with them. I am wondering if there is any place I can get a cheap barebones system with Socket P that I can put my components into. I've tried searching on google but every current barebones supplier only has the newest generation. Thanks.

    An alternative would be to build a HTPC or home-server PC using a mini-itx motherboard. That's what I ended up doing as every other option would be too costly to even be considered attractive.
    The Jetway NC64-LF is the cheapest socket-p motherboard. Got mine from linitx.

    A broken dell 1737 might suit your needs. They would be compatible with those parts.

    Get another T400? Barebones and whole T400's can start at the 300-400 range. For 500+ you can still get T400 still in warranty...
