So i had an old HP pavilion with A6 CPU in. I bought it from my work for a long time ago. It was kind of useless and i had other laptop to use. So i stripped it all down to clean all stuff off and applied new cooling paste. I stripped of every component i wont be in need of. Then i bought 2 pieces of acrylic plastic sheets and just mounted it on, installed plex-server with Ubuntu and it works flawless! I have 1TB external HDD connected to it with my mediafiles and can now access it everywhere i am. The PLEX server can also work as an NAS to backup and store other files.
What is plex?
Plex organizes all of your video, music, and photo collections, and gives you instant access to them on all of your devices.
When you have a plex server you can access the files on almost all platforms.
