I agree that some of the older OEM machines look great, however the BIOS implementations can be a nightmare to work with. I have an old IBM PS/1 and it's just terrible. After any hardware configuration change the computer will do nothing on power-on for about 30 seconds while it has a good think about it. Meanwhile I'm stressed out thinking I've killed it. It also doesn't play nice with XT-IDE bios either. I have an old 386SX board that's much easier to work with than this damn IBM.
