This is a dream come true
I have been building computers since 2001. I have had the pleasure to modify new and old cases alike. I have radically changed the disign of the normal ATX case with Project: THINNER and Project: Inverted ATX.
This is different.
Ever since I first saw a Commodore PET on eBay, I have wanted one. The only thing that has stopped me is MONEY.
Usually only working Commodore PET's come up for sale and then sell for an easy $200 to $300.
THIS TIME I GOT LUCKY!
I finally found a non-working one for just $53!!
Here is my newest project. Unlike most of my mods, this will actually be a computer I will be keeping and using in my office.
I will be modding a Commodore P.E.T. 2001-N originally built in 1978!!
The exterior will undergo very few changes to keep the original look, but the inside will be different all together. I'm going to be using the following specs:
AMD Phenom X6 1055T
Crucial 6GB DDR3-1333
Radeon 6950 2GB
64GB SSD - Primary
1TB WD Secondary
650 Watt XFX Modular PSU
LG DVD DL Writer (maybe)
Here's the best part, looking inside
I guess that's me
This slot is already here
Ahhh Yes! Perfect!
I opened the back of the CRT to remove it
The inside is stamped June 20, 1980
Now it's empty
