This is my workbench PC, picked it up free from my work, was recycled due to faulty ethernet port.
- Core i5-3470T CPU
- 16GB RAM (upgraded from 4GB)
- 500GB SSD (upgraded from 320GB spinning rust)
- DVD/CDRW Sled and VESA mount
- Teac USB 3.5″ floppy
- USB3 gigabit NIC with USB3 hub (faulty onboard NIC)
- Running Ubuntu 20.04LTS
This is mounted out of the way under my workbench with the VESA mount/optical drive sled. This gets used mostly just for downloading drivers/etc, making 3.5″ disk images, burning CD/DVDs, or downloading manuals. This is hooked up to the workbench monitor with a KVM to switch between other systems on the bench, the monitor also has composite hookups for NTSC/PAL video, not the newest or sharpest LCD, but has pretty broad selection of ports and signal compatibility.
