Good ways to repurpose older systems?
Any good ideas? Their pentium D- AMD A10
128 mb ram - 10gb RAM
I send old Macs to small town schools in Mexico that have no computers at all.
• Web Server
• Media Server
• Paper weight
• DVR (put a TV Tuner in it) -- nah, probably not enough processing power unless the GPU takes over
• Classic arcade game/ Classic video game console emulators (think MAME).
• Heater for really cold nights (just remove the heat sink and fan).
• "Car"puter -- somehow jam it into the dash of a car, like where the passenger side airbag should be.
if you have old working computers, give them to family members or donate them. It will make you feel nice! =)
You can sell them to gamestop or other places for the parts and then use that money to get new things.
I would definitely donate the devices, It helps share the love with the rest of the world and you will never regret doing so. It feels great to donate desktops or any other electronics to people in need. In the meantime, I will brainstorm ideas with my team and get back with you on the basis of more ideas.
