  • So...what should I do with this old, slow kiosk?



    Model no: Planar C2005T
    (The only info I've been able to find has been at http://www.pds.planar.com/today/586adv.pdf)
    Specifications:
    Microprocessor AM5X86 133MHz
    32mb simms (expandable to 64MB)
    Internal Cache Memory 16KB CPU write-back support
    2x serial ports
    1x parallel port
    1x ISA slot (currently using for network card, as built-in one doesnt seem to work)
    PCMCIA Slot One Type III card or two Type II cards
    Display Head Dimensions 14.2 x 2.8 x 8.8 inches
    Display Head Weight 8 lb.
    Integrated LCD Display Active Matrix 10.4 TFT SVGA (800x600)(not too bright)
    built-in speakers

    I got Windows 98 running on it...dunno what to do with it tho. (You'll notice the regular computer power supply next to it, which is what it's plugged into. it takes +12v and -12v, and I got this thing with no power supply).

    I've tried two different wireless cards in it, (Aironet and Orinoco) which Win98 just wouldn't take. I might just use an ISA PCMCIA adapter I have which I had planned using in my car computer in an old design.

    so...it seems a shame not to use this thing, since I got it running and all. Ideas?

    Would it fit in the back of the car if you removed all the casing???

      If its a decent screen you could make a nice casing and use it as a digital picture frame.

        Mount it on your fridge and inventory you food inside.

          I had thought about this...the only thing is it's so thick.



          I could put it in my car, but I can't think of a reason to do so. I infrequently have more than 2 people in my car, and I might be putting a screen back there for my car computer.

          I thought I could buy a touch screen and use it as say, a random computer in my apartment...but that's the thing, I have a small apartment, not a house...so it wouldn't really make much sense.

          Thanks for the ideas, keep em coming. The crazier, the better.

            i was gonna say control your home security and whatever else from it, with the touchscreen, and stick it in the wall but ya live in an apartment. You could make a nice stand for it or a frame.

              Try to upgrade the CPU (if possible), max out the ram, toss on a TS, and use it as a dumb terminal to control streaming music from your PC. Just an idea...
