I had higher hopes for this build and may revise another build like this in the future but for now it will be fairly basic. This is for another (older) friend of mine who has helped me out through the years when things weren't so good in my life. He's a pretty basic Old School NY farm boy at heart. For many years he was one of the regional mechanical technicians for John Deere and could tell you almost anything there was to know about tractors in general but especially the JD models.
He would never accept monetary compensation in return so I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse. At 72 with no typing skills much less knowledge of how to operate a computer, it's been a very slow process of teaching him some of the basics of computing but I'm still convinced anyone can learn regardless of age and he's stubborn which helps in a good way. To get him on track I've decided that it's time he had a computer of his own. It will give him even more incentive to learn and not worry that he's going to mess up someone else's system.
I started off with a donated Proteva computer system circa 1996 with an Intel Pentium 3 Processor. All metal cabinet (yaay) with no frills, bells or whistles. Attached is a borrowed photo off the net which shows exactly what this one looked like (but slower) lol.
Pretty small as you can probably tell.
