Found a few systems over at the dump today. There were three of them that I could see: a slimline i5 Dell Inspiron system (yes you read that right), an HP server that was in really rough shape, and another system that I'll get to shortly. After I packed away the mystery system in the back of my truck, as well as grabbing 1GB worth of DDR400 ECC RAM out of the server, I returned to pick up the i5 system, when the guy who ran the dump today noticed me and told me to put it back - not because of any fears of me stealing personal information, but because they couldn't let go of any discarded metal. Oh well. I might go back there Monday to see if it's still there. At least the mystery system I picked up arrived safely home with me...
Yup. Another OEM PIII box, this one an eMachines eMonster 600. Seems like every other week over the past couple of months, I've found a PIII system at the dump. This one, however, is really interesting...
--Slot 1 Pentium III 600MHz
--440BX micro ATX motherboard
--64MB PC100 RAM
--nVidia TNT2 Vanta 8MB AGP
--Avance Logic ALS4000 sound card (on top of the integrated Crystal sound card)
--20GB Trigem (Samsung) SV2044D HDD
--54x Mistumi CD-ROM drive (not the 8x DVD-ROM drive advertised on the sticker up front)
--Windows 98SE (seems to be the factory install)
Not sure how well you can see it in the picture, but there's an ISA slot underneath the last card, a 56k modem. And yes, the system does work!
That one vintage computer enthusiast brony.
