    ... for all of you!

    heres my recent little project that may be of interest to afew of you, its a little bit unique and different!

    its spec's are

    533 MHz VIA C3 CPU with passive cooling
    VIA EPIA 5000G Mini ITX Motherboard
    256 MB PC133 ram (upgradeable to 1GB)
    40 GB Toshiba Laptop Hard disk
    Laptop CD-rom drive
    90 Watt PicoPSU (worlds smallest PSU)

    all the original power/reset buttons work i did have a go at the power LED but something isn't working, a full work log can be posted if you're really interested!

    Sure, please post the log, it looks like a very interesting project.

    Are you sure a 90 Watt PSU is man enough for the job?

    yea its perfect all the drives are laptop drives and the mini ITX board only requires a little smount of power

    its been running solidly for 3 days now doing downloads and its not skipped a beat! for a low power machine it does very well!

    i would post my work log but it has to be split into 8 images per post and for 40 images i don't think the mods would appreciate the double, triple posting sorry

    im actually thinking of making another one and putting it on ebay just to see what it would be worth to a NES enthusiast it cost me around 110 (GBP) to build which isn't much really
