Old (dud) laptop project - any ideas?
So I've been handed a Dell xps m1330 laptop that has died because of a known issue with the graphics chip. It has overheat and died.
What should I do with it? I thought about setting up freeNAS on a USB and using it as a nas but it only has about 500GB of storage and can't stick extra drives in.
Can't link it to the tv as it can't output any sort of display.
Any ideas? Or should I just stick it in the oven an attempt an at home reflow, might kill it, might get another few months out it.
its all fun until something falls off.
