My Epson EL2 286 w/Photos

Postby mwdmeyer » 2012-3-25 @ 06:06

Hi All,

Here is an interesting machine that I picked up off the side of the road when I was young and have kept it ever since. It still works great (although the BIOS battery is dead, and the BIOS is stored on a floppy disk, which I don't have) and has a few interesting features.

Specs:
AMD 286 10MHz
2.6MB Ram (640k onboard + 2mb ram module).
SCSI HDD
Western Digital 256K inbuilt VGA

So in my mind there are three things of interest

1) It has PS/2 Ports
2) The ram modules are very small and I've never seen anything like it before.
3) The video card uses some PCI looking proprietary connection, the actual VGA connector is on the motherboard.

Photos!

interesting... too much custom made, looks like an industrial/controller pc converted to desktop or something

Sorry not sure, I haven't specifically looked for it. Let me know if you need any other photos.

Can you post photos of yours? :)
