I saw TheRasteri’s video about a mini PC the other day and fell in love with the idea – so I built my own 🙂

The video in question:

And that’s my take on the idea:

Curvy yellow fruit for scale

I got a somewhat good deal on a mainboard from the UK, took some measurements and build a face- and backplate for the casing. The clunky power switch and overall design tries very hard to look like a retro PC, haha 😀

CPU: Embedded low-power onboard VIA Mark 533 MHz
RAM: 133 Mhz SDRAM 144-pin SODIMM 256MB
HDD: 2GB CF-Card
I/O: 2 x USB 1.1; 1x Gameport; 1x Line Out; 1x HDMI out; 2x PS/2; 1x VGA
GPU: VIA Mark CoreFusion VRAM 32 MB
Sound: *wink* *wink* Avance Logic ALS100 Plus+ PnP OPL3 sound card for PC/104
Power: 5V@4A

The decal on top is from this dude, who does awesome repro stickers: Geekenspiel (@geekenspiel) • Instagram-Fotos und -Videos (it covers a blemish in the casing 🙁 )
