    Beware, bad socket placement means those long V2 boards won't fit.

    In the top right corner it says: "Thread: CANB Vintage Clearout" and if you click the underlined part, it'll take you to the whole thread.

    OCAU basics ;)

    I'm guessing because there's no ZIF Socket? missing battery and maybe untested :p

    486 DX33 slimline system, ET4000 video

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/486-DX-3...etro-DOS-PC-/321881965875?hash=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 :)
