You’ve probably had your car cleaned before, and you may have even had it detailed once or twice, but I can promise you that you’ve never had it cleaned and detailed like Clark’s Ne Plus Ultra can clean and detail it.

Paul Stamatiou’s 200 Dollar PC is an impressive piece of tech, and his now completed three part guide means that you can build your own as long as you can follow a relatively simple set of directions.

Specs include 1.2GHz of Intel Celeron power, 1GB of RAM, 250GB of hard drive, and a mini-ITX form factor to keep everything small and compact.

What will you do with yours?
