Socially Distanced Studio Station

by Jon C Posted on: 6/27/2022

Build Description

Built at the beginning of Covid with parts mostly from Micro. Used so far for data science calculations, mobile app dev, desktop app dev, web dev, graphics design, photography and editing, 3D Modeling and animation, video game development (including Unity, VR, Desktop games), as well as ad-hoc networking.

I apologize for the reflections in the images. It's hard since the glass is tinted and dark to get a decent photo

Favorite Feature

Either the ease of upgradability (opening the case), or that it has all the ports I'd ever need.
