I would consider one if it was under $100. That's exactly what I did a good while back, in fact
There's enough room for 7, Office 2007, Firefox, drivers, and a few other things. It's not an Intel, and it has less than half the capacity so you'd need a pretty good deal imo. As I'm sure you saw you can get a retail Intel on newegg for $225 and the Vertex for $119.
