$9 for a 1.3 GHz Pentium 4 (if you're a sucker for punishment and have a 423 board).

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/271993687878

$10 for a 1.4 GHz Pentium 3-S (if you're less of a sucker ).

Since no one wanted to pick this up I grabbed it except the seller lost Conquest of Camelot

I guess I can't complain for $2 bux

486 DX33 slimline system, ET4000 video

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/486-DX-33...item4af1a90533

$70 Or make an offer plus post

I can vouch for that seller, fair valued 486 system just add some more ram and perhaps a 486/5x86 overdrive with/cd-rom/soundcard and away you go, I found with of these computers they often dont support a 40mhz fsb so keep that in mind if you wanted to do some overclocking.

I worked on these computers during a work experience They had 386 processors, but the same case and look.

What's great about these OEM machines are the PS/2 ports for mouse and keyboard. A single motherboard that has a PS/2 mouse port can cost as much, if not more, than this computer.

Onboard Tseng plus some ISA slots is also very nice. Anyone in the area should grab this one ASAP

That is a nice looking machine, and I just read a book about Compaq so am tempted. My only concern is that 486's are supposed to fight you every inch of the way, and this thing would just work 100% of the time. Where's the fun in that?

PS/2 mouse ports were the bees knees. I had a Dell XPS back in the day, originally with a P90 CPU. Can't remember if it was socket 5 or 7. It was excellent because the only things truly non-standard with it were an atypical back plate for the PS/2 ports and a custom BIOS screen. Quite different from some of the frankenplug machines Dell has shipped in more recent years.

Compaq was okay except when their urge to cost down resulted in decisions like putting the CMOS setup software on disk instead of on a PROM.

Don't despair, OEM 486 machines can be infuriating enough.

Cool machine and the price seems fair. I'd jump on it if I had the space.

Not a bargain, but these come up rarely.
