Well, it was. Original selling price was $1649. I got it for $698.
Why? Not this one. I can plug in several different Pentium or even a Cyrix
upgrade chips. And it'll go to 128MB of RAM. Three empty drive bays too.

The RAM is standard, 72 pin simms. Plenty of space for my Conner 850's

I agree with this. Thats why I said originally that I knew this cpu would NOT
be much better, if at all, as compared to my AMD 133. But, my goal was to
get into a Pentium, which could be readily upgraded. I did that. And I'm
pleased with the machine, their support thus far, and all the software that
came with it also. Oh, yeah, it is for Win 95, but I already took that off to m
room for Debian.
