Alrighty, back in the day people would buy these just for the tasty CPU inside, now that there are a billion and one of them floating around, let's take another look at what else came in the box. First, a nice wrapped and sealed box: http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l186/mv75/CIMG1540.jpg Next, the cardboard insert that contains all the goodies: http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l186/mv75/CIMG1542.jpg Finally, the contents. Big manual, rego card, floppy disk with cpu utilities on it, cpu and a silver cpu "lever" with intel stamped on it. This was for getting the cpu out of the socket if you didn't have a zif. You put the teeth in on each side that slide beteween the pins and levered it on all sides to get it out of the socket. http://i96.photobucket.com/albums/l186/mv75/CIMG1543.jpg Ah, now that's how you bought a retail CPU. The packages these days are pathetic. Also this is a variation, some (including one I bought in 1996), also came with a little plastic box with a foam insert with an intel sticker on it that was used to be intended as a cpu storage along with the silver lever. I'm using my ~14 year old one to store cache chips in.
