my model M122. coolest looking IBM ever made IMO

s-l1600 (2).jpg


It was a wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever want to be king?

Around this time, Intel made a series of bugged pentium processors that would calculate the wrong numbers. A software fix was built into windows 95 and 98 to correct for this. I don't know if this is one of those processors, but I do know that this piece of tech is over 25 years old now.

Hey people.  Just picked up this (from what I remember at the time) very funny laughing stock from my local CEX for 3 quid total.

 

OCZ2N800SR4GK 2X2GB SLi Ready kit

 

and yes the peelies are still on the SLi badges 😊😊😁

Found this under a load of crusty thermal paste.

Put back reapplied paste, changed the unusual size cmos battery. My Ast fired up into Windows 95,after a little tinkering in the bios.

I have lots of cool stuff, e.g.:

 

- A 486-based Compaq computer w/original monitor (technically my Mom's, but I have free reign of it)

- A Pentium III-based Dell laptop (my first ever laptop as a kid, got it as a hand-me-down, lots of memories there)

- 2 early Pentium 4-based Dell workstations (one of these was mine as a kid to mess with as much as I wanted, the other was the family computer.  P4 1.4GHz, 256MB RDRAM, remember RDRAM?)

- iBook G4

- iMac G5 (currently non-functional as the GPU needs a reflow)

And some various Socket 775-based systems, though those are less "retro" and more just "old", lol.

 

But probably my coolest piece of retro tech is this (though not strictly speaking retrocomputing):
 



Got it at an estate sale, but didn't realize just how rare these are until I started researching it a couple of days later.

Pentium something or others and a mix of 128mb and 256mb ram, I think. 

 

If anyone, in the UK, would like any spares from them you can have them for p+p. 

 

If you're in the northwest of England and want to pick them up you can have the lot. 

 

Pm if interested.

I think I created a post on this once but last year my dad found his first computer, the Osborne 1. It was the first commercially successful portable microcomputer, and when I say 'portable' and 'microcomputer' I mean it's nearly the size of an ATX Mid-tower. Back when my dad got this in 1982 it cost nearly $3,000cad. With inflation, this computer is $7k+ in today's money. 

 

The OS floppy disk is missing though so it won't boot up but we are keeping this relic around.
