When I bought my kick ass, Dell XPS Super-Computer, I reformatted my old HP 8660c Pavillion and gave it to my daughter.
She limped along with that piece of crap until she got her own laptop.
So now, I have a redundant, mostly obsolete computer that I'm thinking must still be good for something.
You can peruse the base specifications of the 8660c here. I think I upgraded the RAM and the video card.
There must be something I can use it for.
Rudimentary home automation? DIY robotics? Simple porn storage?
C'mon, all you techno geeks! Use your imagination. Gotta be sumpthin'.
