The Mainboard Terminal is the brainchild of computer modder Penk Chen, who drew inspiration from old sci-movies, which imagined a future a lot cooler than it actually is. The all-in-one computer uses a Framework Mainboard (which, unlike a Rasberry Pi, is capable of running x86 operating systems) running a version of Ubuntu 22.04 LT that’s been slightly modified to account for the round display.
I’ve long contemplated starting a collection of vintage computers and video games, but I really don’t have the space, and my wife probably wouldn’t appreciate a bunch of extra junk in our already jampacked house. Thanks to the wonders of 3D printing, I might be able to fulfill my dream without taking up much space at all.
Over the years, laptops have kept getting lighter, more powerful, and sleeker. Among the leaders of the ultrabooks on the market is Razer, with their Razer Blade Stealth.

Dell Wyse – the cloud computing company acquired by Dell in May 2012 – may soon be entering its bet on the emerging PC on a stick genre. While the previous examples of these flash drive computers we’ve seen use Android as their primary operating system, Dell’s product will also run on Android, but will give customers the freedom to choose from different OSes to actually use.
You never know what a geek is going to get up to with some old hardware on their hands and a little bit of time. Rodrigo Alonso had some donated, chopped up computer parts that were left over from obsolete machine, along with some whole computer mice and keyboards.
Last year, a man named Barry Altman founded Commodore USA, LLC and acquired the rights to the Commodore computer brand. His company has since relaunched the brand along with the Commodore 64, the legendary all-in-one computer in a keyboard that inspired a generation of programmers, tinkerers and gamers.
This looks like an ordinary computer desktop, until you you see a giant fingers reaching down and starting to work the mouse. The whole thing looks like something that belongs in a doll house. The only question that’s left is whether it’s real or a fake.
I don’t know if I’d like to have one in my home, but BRC Designs’ new Binary Table 01 is entirely composed of outdated and discarded electronics. The whole structure consists of old computer towers and built from a patchwork of circuit boards.
After Asus released some Lamborghini laptops, it’s time to make more money off the Lambo name by releasing some USB hard drives. While the enclosure looks nice enough, it’s by no means the fastest or biggest drive out there.
All-in-one computers are nothing new, but they tend to sacrifice power and upgradability in return for a relatively slim package.
