Can’t decide what to do with your aging NES system at home? If you’re not using it to play those nostalgic games anymore, you could always attempt to transform it into a home theater PC (HTPC), which is what this person on Etsy has done. This mod sees a Zotac motherboard, dual-core 1.66GHz Intel Atom N330, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M and 2GB RAM stuffed into the original NES casing, making it a whole lot more powerful than the original NES system. This mod also features an Ethernet port, Wi-Fi b/g/n as well as a 4GB flash drive containing Ubuntu 9.10 installed, allowing you to enjoy it right away. If you’re too lazy to build one of these for yourself, but have the cash to splash, you could always shell out $475 to buy it straight off Etsy.
