Retro gaming on an HP t5730 Thin Client.

The last couple of weeks I have been having a lot of fun revisiting some late 90s games under Windows XP running on an HP t5730 Thin Client.

This machine takes up very little room, has powerful enough graphics for Unreal Tournament, and thanks to a lack of internal fan runs silently :)

I upgraded the RAM from 1GB to 4GB, and swapped out the 1GB 44-pin IDE Flash Memory for an adapter to a 128GB mSATA module.

Using a DVI to HDMI adapter, I’ve connected to my KVM, so it is easy to switch between it and a couple of other machines I have at the same desk.

Last things I need to do are figure out a better way to mount the storage so the internals aren’t exposed to the world, and when it arrives, try an adapter I’ve ordered that should route the audio through the HDMI connection, so I can leave my speakers connected to the KVM.
