HP ProDesk 600 G1 Small Form Factor PC

Small desktop pc and keyboard in red and black color scheme Three LCD monitors in portrait mode

The desktop wallpaper is from here.

Named for Tom Servo from Mystery Science Theater 3000. I saw a Phil's Computer Lab episode about upgrading SFF PCs of this vintage and was inspired. I found this one on craigslist in Spring 2019, and upgraded the GPU, RAM, and storage. It's better spec'ed now than the gaming desktop I built in 2008. I have it set up with three Dell Ultrasharp U2414H monitors in portrait mode. The keyboard is a Cooler Master CK530 with Film Never Fades keycaps by Tex. The spacebar was sticky (I'm using the stock one here instead) and the A and S labels are already fading!
