I'M ALMOST OFFENDED... almost...
naw Just kidding.
I can defiantly understand if you're only into late 90s PC games then a 286 wouldn't be much use to YOU.
But those of us who play (and love to play with) games & computers from the 80s 286 are fairly awesome. Father than a 4.77mhz 8088.
games like Silpheed come to mind for games with Adlib & Gameblaster music, CGA/ EGA graphics that run a little slow on an 8088, but great on a 286.
my collection consists of 8088 XT and 286 AT class machines that I use almost every day! even when doing something simple like formatting floppy diskettes for use on other systems I will often fire up my Turbo XT clone.
something about the feeling of the older machines, the sounds that they make and the speed of everything is lost on 90s machines.
Awesome room! Specifications of each computer?
