An E-book reader.
Because this is my first e-reader, I can't judge it against it's peers. It works well.
It is spectacular hardware-wise. Its software works, but it is sometimes obviously or even critically lacking. It lacking a file browser and respecting directories is bad enough that I can't really use it for its intended purpose, and almost regret buying it.

This is a placeholder topic for anything Raspberry Pi.
I might have used this as a media centre, but I never did explore it. USB 2.0 was the killer for me, because I couldn't re-check torrents which were all corrupt by default with Deluge.
TODO - Make a proper page

A QWERTY clamshell palmtop which runs Linux.
I grew sick and tired of how loud computers had been getting, ever since CDROMs and CPU fans, faster HDDs and fan-requiring Graphics Acceleration.
Whoops, I broke my HP 200LX.. I'll have to get it repaired before I can re-open this project.

A portable computer.
Clamshell, Full QWERTY-keyboard with a keypad and macro keys, authentic Intel 8086 hardware, true DOS, a task-switching application, and a number of GUI applications and productivity software. It is truly a portable computer.
I got this some time ago
An excellent video card, that can manage nearly-ultra settings for World of Warcraft.
Notable because it is very low power: It only uses motherboard power and no additional cable directly from the power supply.
