Have you ever wanted to play some vintage MS-DOS / Windows 3.1 3.11 applications, programs or games, but realized you needed an older operating system to run them on? Then the problem becomes finding an older system in good working order!
The network card, soundcard and video card are ALL DEVICES INSTALLED IN MS-DOS AND WINDOWS 3.1.
QEMM memory manager is also available to install on the solid-state hard drive.
1.44Mb Floppy Drive tested to work and install software fine. Due to the age of today'sfloppies, I can't guaranteeit will read YOUR floppies.
BUY THIS SYSTEM! This vintage Dell system has been professionally refurbished to run like new, with upgraded components, while preserving the "old" feel of the unit. Please continue reading below for full details on this system.
The original Intel 486 DX-33Mhz processor has been replaced with a Intel 486 DX2-66MHz version. It's the perfect speed for classic to mid-DOS gaming, as well as perfect for older industrial software. A new, ball-bearing heatsink and fan combo has been added, which almost silently keeps the CPU cool. The CPU is socketed, which makes Intel OverDrive upgrades easy.
The Opticon motherboard features four (4) SIMM sockets, which allows up to 64Mb of RAM. It has 512Kb of cache, with a maximum of 1Mb upgraded via socketed cache chips. Features five (5) ISA slots, with two being Vesa Local Bus (VLB) slots. Unit features two (2) serial ports and one (1) parallelport. Perfect for industrial controllers and software!
Video is run by dedicated Cirrus Logic with 512Kb of video memory, upgradeable to 1Mb via socketed chips.
I have also removed the unreliable 23-year-old mechanical hard drive and replaced it with a modern, state-of-the-art, solid-state hard drive module. (SSD). It has an 2 Gb capacity, which is the maximum size for DOS 6.22 or Windows 3.1!
I sell and service vintage industrial and commercial-grade computers for a living. It's my business to know these units inside and out. You are not going to find a more pristine unit anywhere.
If you are a vintage computer lover, (or know one!) you aren't ever going to find this again! Trulya "barnyard find"!
