Attack of the Souped-Up Ataris
In a truly inspiring fit of nerdy-inventiveness, the folks at Retrosystem have taken the case-modification craze and jacked it up to the next level.
For a fee, their geek-chic production team will outfit an old Atari, NES or Amiga computer with miniature, up-to-date components like good-sized hard drives, speedy ram and even dvd drives to make for a system as powerful as many recent desktops. Linux and Windows operating systems are included and yes - you can still play that crummy irritating version of Pac-Man on it.
