Been absent for a while, but picked this up earlier this week...

IBM Aptiva 2153-E44, AMD K6-2 300Mhz

Bit poorly at the moment, but will keep me busy over the Xmas break

I was stuck with an Aptiva 2153 as the family computer right up until 2005. Took a photo of the internals in December 2007 before dad took it to recycling (it was old enough to be junk but not old enough to be vintage). 😢

Speaking of crippled super socket 7 systems, here is my K6-2/500 build with an MVP4 mATX motherboard that doesn't have enough slots for me to run my Voodoo 2 SLI configuration 😒 I hope to find an ATX MVP3 board for cheap at some point..

^ Nice another MVP3 SS7! that case looks rather unique though with the front cover and color.

This build that was on hold for quite a bit few months back, still WIP though because I'd like to add and swap out some parts like IDE for CF and additional RAM or different soundcard. Case is rather yellowed on the front but I don't think I will be retrobrighting since some of the plastic clips already cracked.

Thats awesome! Thats the PC I wish I had back then. At that time I had built an Athlon 64 system.. it was pretty good but definitely didnt have that awesome case and front panel. I definitely want to get my hands on some of those cool front drives... especially the sound and fan controllers.

So my DOS PC ended up with a big hole in the top, and I needed something to cover it up. Ain't she beautiful?
