Here is a gallery of images of the completed computer. The one just below shows the CRT's on/off-switch and the tuner.
Below you see a bird's eye view of the computer.
And here is a closeup of the screen.
Here is an image of the PC where the screen is on. The blitz makes it difficault to see due to reflections from the glass.
A screenshot of the file-transfer from my old hard drive to the new one... The picture is important, because it symbolises the change from an old computer to a new design-PC, and blablablabla... ;-)
Here, I'm running WinAmp. I made all these screenshots to give you an idea of the quality of the picture tube, but that is impossible. The picture is in reality a bit blurry, but the text is perfectly readable when running 640X480, or if I adjust the font-size in windows
The purpose of the cola-can is to give you an idea of the size of my computer. Do you remember the dull, old PC-support joke? "help, my cup-holder is broken!"
I just had to... ;-)
Summary This project is not just there to collect dust. It may not be ultra-portable, but I did not want a laptop either. It is just supposed to replace an ATX, and I never meant to carry it around.
