Price is high, but you don't see complete OEM 286 machines come up often, especially ones so clean.
That looks very nice! But I think your right about the price.

Out of curiosity I can't seem to find much about the 286s but I can the 88s which was an 8088 which used the same chassis. Did a bit more digging to see if I could find a 386s, but nothing other than a notebook they did with a similar name. It's possible they were the only desktops they did before moving to notebooks?

Definitely a nice looking machine.

I'd say well worth the coin. Even an offer close to it.
Very nice condition & only notice some paint chips around back on the cover.
To note, even the steel framing inside has lost it's sheen. It's just so old.

Do you ever have anything positive to contribute to these threads?

It can't be that bad given it works after 25 years.

I just call it like I see it, and SAMTRON was Samsung's budget brand for many years. I remember their monitors mostly, they were pretty average. I don't think I've ever seen a SAMTRON PC before this one though.
