HP Media Center 2005 Edition.
The machine is a ...... a1310n , but the case says ............. a1330n. I like to get the MoBo's going and into a couple cases I have here. Was driving down the street in the neighborhood and seen this computer case on the side for trash,
so I stopped and scored it it a very expense case my friend said. He said it is a expensive gamming case and there is alot of stuff in it still. Ths surprizing part it works fine and it got alot of stuff in it but I don't know about all that game stuff.
Anyway I am going to get it cooking and use it. But the media , like to make it work because I like the challenge of it.
Drop me a line if you can could use some help.......... LongBike from Hawaii
