Talk about old computers or other tech you've given a new home. An old enterprise PC turn production/gaming rig, an old laptop resurrected with Linux, etc. What orphaned computer do you take care of /cy/?

Most of my gear consists of Frankenstein monsters that I've salvaged and-or repaired. Currently grieving the death of an old video card that finally fried out in an old Windows XP tower that I curb scored. It was nice to have a dedicated machine for retro gaming, not having to worry about possible wine hiccups with certain PC games and emulating older console games.
I once took in a stray that spent an entire winter outside covered in snow and ice. Thought maybe I could get a few spare parts out of it, but somehow it survived the elements intact. Not even a wrecked capacitor on the mobo from the extreme temperatures. That little miracle's hostname is snowcrash. It was going to be thrown away, but it handles some audio for me now.

I have a refurbished corporate laptop as my daily. Still spent way too much money on it.

Rocking a Thinkpad X201 Tablet with the 1GHz i5-M520UM. Have Q4OS with Trinity Desktop installed on it and it works well enough for fucking around on the internet, writing, music, etc.

Got a Windows XP/Vista box with a Core 2 E8600 and a HD 7850 setup to play older games on that I use frequently.

If it works and I have a use for it I try to keep something from ending up as ewaste.

I have an old laptop somewhere that a family member gave me because it broke. I think it has something to do with the power supply. Once I get it working again I think I use it to run some ToR relays. And when I graduate I'm going to use my old school pc as either a ToR browsing machine or more Tor Relays.

I salvaged an old tower from a horder's house on the way to the trash. Had an Intel i5 650 and nvidia 240?? by far the best PC I had at the time. Replaced the case, gave it a disc drive, got new ram and a SSD for it.

Another recover was few mini netbooks before, with intel atom's used one as my main driver for 2 years, got it a new battery, Ram and a SSD. the other one had a cracked screen I used with an external monitor, then later used it as a home server.

I mostly salvaged phones, Iphone4se, old nokia bicks, motos. Most needed a screen replacement, others new batteries, and at least two I needed to replace the charging port.

I sill have a recovered laptop from 2010 that I used up until a few months ago, I messed up permissions and removed sudo . It's in my to fix pile because I need to get files off the drive, and it can't boot anymore.
