Hardware prices for Mp3Box
Well I've sat down and priced what it will cost for _new_ parts for an Mp3Box. The prices are in AU$ not US.
AMD Duron 650Mhz CPU (this is one of the cheapest, and slowest chips I can find brand new): $ 97.27
M/B for CPU (built in sound I think): $171.82
64Mb RAM (Lifetime warranty): $59.09
40Gb IBM Glass Platter HDD (3yr warranty): $281.82
10Gb Fujitsu HDD (3yr warranty): $181.82
Win98 Keyboard: $8.18
TOTAL: For 40Gb HDD: $618.18 For 10Gb HDD: $518.18
If fellow Australian's are wondering how the prices are so cheap, they are wholesale prices. Other costs to include are a case, LCD, power supply (I want to make a DC-DC one probably the MK2.6 on Sproggy's website.)
So I think it is looking like around $1000 for a complete system.
How does this compare with the cost others have spent? Have I missed anything else?
