Gateway G6-350 MObO Upgrade Q

  1. I saved a Gateway G6-350 from the landfill and on Earth Day no less!
    This is a Micro ATX P2 system and I want to modernize it. The back panel seems to punched out for a specific MoBo, not like the other cases I have that accept numerous kinds of back panels with an adapter plate.
    Ant suggestions or possabilities with this case or should I gut it and sell the parts on ebay.

    part it on ebay. You could use the case, but micro ATX are a pain to build.

    Thats what I'm thinking also!

    My brother , who is a control engineer, says alot of manufacturers buy up old memory and CPU's so they can keep there obsolite computerized assembly lines running instead of upgrading at a cost of millions.

    There is little you can do with a 350 MHz Gateway, but it is extremely rugged, with very few failures... and in quality, it was ahead of its time. It is worth about $25... perhaps more if parted out.
    If the serial number is still on the back label, you can find out everything you need to know by going to the Gateway download and support site.
