While I’d like to play on OG hardware the noise from old HDDs, fans, and CRT whine is too much. Space is also a concern. Another concern is power draw and sustainability. Old hardware is wearing out with time and getting more expensive as the collective nostalgia ramps up.

I’m seriously considering a hybrid retro-modern machine though, as LGR appears to do sometimes, with an OG chassis and parts except for the disk and monitor. Then install a modern SDcard adapter and low-latency LCD monitor.

Or possibly an FPGA or SOC system that runs ‘natively’ yet without a lot of downsides of the originals.
