How to Revitalize Mature Computers
it is really an article on fixing up old computers....who would have thunk it
In 1996 my first PC had a Pentium I 166mhz processor, 16 megs of RAM and a "whopping" 1 Gigabyte HD! Cost: $1600. I remember thinking what a great deal it was.
New PC's perform so much better, have a lot more features and are ridiculously cheap nowadays. I wouldn't even consider a refurbished PC.
Hmmm... maybe I should dust off my first computer- an Apple IIe.
The author does it for charity besides you can refurbish an old system to do one task like a home server or dedicated TV feed. Besides nowadays most of the throw aways are early P4s.
Coleco Adam here. it operated at around 16 MhZ had 80 KB of RAM and a cassette drive. It was a major piece of shit.
