Ideas for an old PC

8 posts in this topic

I have this old Acer Aspire One (D270 - 1998) running Windows 7, and I don't know what to do with it

I was going to turn it into an HTPC, but Kodi lags on it and I'd rather use that. I may do a server, I just don't know what kind.

Post ideas below

I think it's recommended to have a operating system like Windows XP or some OS that might Support that type of computer.

Windows 7 supports it...

Then i would recommend starter for now since it's properly meant to be for older pcs however. since Windows 7 starter doesn't like you to change it's theme (in normal mode) from basic to classic and the desktop background. it may be difficult to change them both. but at the same time. i don't really care that much about it.

I put another Gb of RAM in it and keep Win 7 on it. Then sell it on ebay for a decent price. Please don't take me wrong just saying. Unless you have a use for a netbook. I wouldn't even consider using it for a server. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth. :D
