Good Afternoon Everyone,

I love this forum. I have lurked for months and finally have something to share. After digging through a back room of a friend's business, I was able to acquire this NEC Ready 9716 and a few goodies. It currently runs with a disk drive, but I hope to get my CF and/or SD adapter working (for another thread). Anyway, here are some photos and the specs.

It reminds me of the BTX cases that would come later. Same with the bottom PSU mount.

The place I got this from had a 486, but sadly the battery corroded into the AT keyboard port. All attempts to save it failed. I even found the exact motherboard of it and similar post buried in these and other forums. I salvaged its CPU, memory, case, psu, and ISA cards for later.
