What should I do with my PS1?


Last year my PS1 broke, and the guy at the eletronics store tried to charge 100 dollars to fix it. I chose to save some more cash and buy a PS2. Yesterday, while I was cleaning my closet, I found the PS1 and decided to try to fix it myself. Turned out that the laser thingy ( I don't know what it is called) was just dirty, and after a good cleaning the console was working again. The plastic is yellow and there are some scratches, but its working.

But now I already own a PS2, so I don't need the PS1 to play the games anymore. I remembered seeing some projects of portable playstations, and after a quick search I found the projects of Brian Gardiner and Ben Heck. But they used the slim model, and I don't have the skills necessary to make such mods. So I tought about making an "aestethic" mod, just paint it and maybe add some leds. The thing is, I also like the console with the original look.

So I'd like to know what you guys think. Its better to have the console with the original look, even though it is a bit damaged by the time; or its better to own a personalized, unique looking one? Also, did any of you tried to modify yours in some way?

Here are some versions of the PS1 with different colors:

Debuggind PS1, pretty blue color:

Yarouze, home development PS1:

And a cople of videos of case modded playstations:
