I was surprised to find some of my leftover photos on the Internet today, including some of a Dell GX150 I repainted a couple of years ago before selling it on ebay.
I figured after disassembling one machine earlier today, I might as well re-link to those photos and enjoy the nostalgia.
That particular machine was very flexible for a small-form-factor desktop computer. I know these were originally marketed for the business sector, but with a proper upgrade or two they were no less usable than most of the machines I have now. (Of course, most of the machines I have now are … the same. )
I don’t remember how much money I made off it, but I know I turned a handsome profit.
Two cans of paint, a few hours of time and a hobby that makes your bank account grow. Even more so, if you have any artistic ability. In light of the current economic situation, it might be something to consider.
