Won an auction yesterday, and got myself a complete IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre M55 8810 (Core2 Duo E6300@1.86 GHz, 1GB RAM, 40GB HDD), costing me 910 SEK including freight. I’ll look through the scrapheap in the basement, see if there’s anything memorywise that fits in the machine as well. I’ve got a box of ECC 1GB RAM that may, or may not, work… Something to try once it gets here.
The plan is to put Ubuntu Desktop on it, try out jOpenRay, and then also adding OpenRate for some fun. And… using it for lab stuff, stuff that I don’t want to test on the SRSS terminal server.
It’s always nice to get “new” hardware!! And, one step closer to getting the multimedia box (Atom 330) moved upstairs to where the TV is as well. 😛
