No more space for computers?

By | October 8, 2010

I have two pcs in my home office now, plus a portable netbook. While it feels like a lot of computer power, it’s puzzling me how to deploy all this effectively.

My new Ebox runs Windows 7 more than sufficiently, a revamped XP PC (already 7 years old but with several mother board upgrades) runs quietly on the side. And still I don’t have enough time to really put them to good use.

Part of the problem is that I don’t have enough deskspace for three systems running at once! I’ve looked at mini-itx systems but a rackmount computer might be an interesting alternative, esp. if the rack could be housed away from the desk!

Can we do that at home? I did have a look at mini systems from other suppliers, but they were all out of stock!
