The machine + retro stuffs
Pangaea Jan 30, 2022
This thread may fit, as opposed a whole new thread for small news.

With hardware prices still well into the stratosphere (or worse), I can't afford a full upgrade. However, after years of looking at this chassis, and looking at my now 21-year old chassis... I figured it was time to fork out. Purchased a Phanteks P600S. Specifically wanted the version with proper doors on both sides (not the 'window' types), because those have sound dampening on both sides. Set it up a week or so ago, and I'm very pleased so far. Finally have inputs on the front of the chassis!! Hahaha :D

It comes with 3x140mm fans, and has room for four more. But I'm satisfied with what there is. Can have a water cooler system as well, but don't think I'll ever dare that. Cable management on this chassis is a dream, and it looked so neat and nice. May also be the first time I started up a rig after upgrades, without a single error beep or suchlike. Oftentimes a HDD connector is dodgy or something else. But now everything worked, which was nice. so easy to get to everything, so I look forward to the day (in the distant future perhaps) when I can upgrade the hardware too.

Am amazed this chassis hasn't gotten more cover, but perhaps it's hard to break through the domination of Fractal and a few others. Great chassis in any case, and everything oozes of build quality :)

Last week I saved this Dell Inspiron Mini 910 from becoming e-waste. It's quite old - released around 2008. For many people it's obsolete.

Specs: Intel Atom N270 (no 64bit support), 1GB DDR2 Ram, 16GB mSata SSD (faulty), Intel GMA 950 (supports up to OpenGL 1.4)

I don't plan to spend much money on it, at most will upgrade the ram to 2GB and buy a new SSD. For the moment I installed the OS on a pendrive.

It can't run Crysis, but it can run Quake 2

This one's probably a bit too dinky to be called a "battlestation", but here it is anyway. :P It's a GPD Win Max 2021, which, when closed, is the size of an A5 notebook.
