It is amazing the things you come across when recycling old computers.
Here is an old high end HP desktop. Check out the old audio ports on the front panel. Has a media drive that you can remove and take with you and use as a portable hard drive. Called it a Media Center. The thing weighed a ton.

Here is a original Gateway laptop that I recycled for a customer. Believe it or not it actually turned on and ran. This old school machine had a 3.5in floppy drive, a CD drive and PCMCIA card slots in it. Check out the old analog volume dial knob. This one is a classic.

Here is a open air custom Computer a customer brought to me.

Here is my custom built liquid cooled computer

My Nephews first build, so proud of him. Great first experience for him.
