98/19 Resto-Mod

This is Lucy, she is a 1998 PowerSpec 4320 that was rescued from a pile of computers in the back of a scrapyard.
After heavy restoration and modding she will be a daily driver for productivity and gaming.
The goal with Lucy is to strike a perfect balance between retro 1998 aesthetics and 2019 performance and usability, without going too crazy.
She is still a work in progress but we can’t wait to see how this one turns out!
