    Just before apple won a lawsuit which killed all other apple "type" computers.

    It had a double sided floppy drive which it booted off of, and the toaster sized modem.

    I think it was 2500 dollars?

    Next one was a dx386, early 90's. Tiny Hard drive. I discovered games. Upgrades happened almost every year after that.

    We have a tower downstairs that was found at the dump a few years ago, its a dx386 and win 3.1 is installed. It works perfectly. Just takes forever.
    We also have a tower on 98, and a P1 on Ubuntu.
    Boxes of assorted MB's and vid cards and a graphics tablet I used in 1996. The pen has a chord.
    Its a scream to look thru it all.

    We also found one of these at the side of the road ongarbage day. It needs a KB chord, it partially boots but asks for the KB. We want to get that one running.
