    Have a good one, then hang on to it. Copper vultures will make them scarce soon enough. :(

    I was forced to dispose of half of mine, still have a 17" dell branded Philips and 17" viewsonic. My mate used to have a 21", wouldn't mind something like that. Or a decent TV to use light guns with

    that's the kind of stuff that will become hard to find in future. Probably faster than most of us will realise.

    Looks like a 486 DX2 66 overdrive to me. Had one back in the day.

    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. :thumbup:

    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. :thumbup:

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

    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.
