I just came across framework recently so I’m still a little green. I came across a PS1 and would like to turn it into a HTPC and not a laptop. has anyone done anything similar yet? What are the main parts I would need to get it running? I do have access to a 3d printer and some minimal soldering skills. Also does Framework sell used parts? I’ve been out of work for 6 months and finally landed a job so I’m excited to start tinkering again.

Just to clarify, are you saying that you want to built an HTPC using a Framework mainboard inside a PS1 case?

They sell some refurbished laptops and expansion cards, but that’s all (and I believe they’re all sold out right now - they don’t get enough returns to have enough to keep in stock). You can occasionally find laptops or mainboards on for sale on eBay or posted here, though.

Yes that is correct, Framework mainboard inside a PS1. However its the slim version, so I don’t think I can do the usual mini-itx build.
