Yeah that was my concern. If they were stupid enough to make a case like this I was thinking the insides probably match...

Will get make and model.

Is there even a bracket on the inside to secure cards to the case/mobo?

Someone already does make them with cardboard cases.

Why are they looking to upgrade video? If they need dual output you might be ok with an external USB adapter.

If they are looking to run games on this thing, I'm sorry to say that they are probably out of luck.

Bah. Garbage.

Make sure, if you get a new chassis for it, that the board is a standard matx form factor. Some of the HPs have 'unique' boards that are outside of normal form factor guidelines and will not fit into a matx case.

Let us know how you get on?

We started carrying this a couple of weeks ago. It's powered by a laptop power cord!

That is about as bare bones as you can get without going raspberry pi.
2 Sata ports? sorry about wanting that extra hd. No expansion slots, a soldered down AMD...

I just cried a little on the inside.

That is about as upgradeable as a tablet.
