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.
