Thinking way ahead to when I decide I want a new mainboard in my laptop, it would be cool to put the old one in a home-theater PC. In the past I’ve done this with my desktop systems, but it’s challenging as they have got hotter and louder over the last few years.
- HDMI out. Would be cool if this can be run off the existing internal screen connector.
- One ethernet port (at least 1Gbit)
- 2 USB-2 type As for keyboard/mouse dongles (might be USB-C by that time). Again would be cool to wire these to the existing laptop keyboard/touchscreen buses so we have the maximum USB-Cs available
- A/C power in
- The same laptop usb-c module slots for whatever of those ports are left.
