I am currently building a coffee table with an integrated PC, which will be used for, among other things, playing classic arcade games. It will run MEPIS 7.0, a linux distro based on Ubuntu. I have 2 questions:
1) Should I use a laptop I have lying around, or some old PC parts I scrounged?
Laptop = 800 Mhz CPU, 256 MB RAM, AMD Integrated Graphics
Scrounged Parts = 400 Mhz CPU, 128 MB RAM, ATI Integrated Graphics
(Either Way, the table will have WI-FI, a 40 GB Harddrive, and a 15 inch display)
2) How do I stop people from spilling coffee on the electronics? Plexiglass?
