Anything before Socket7 will likely be tough for current hardware to install. eg, no USB port, keyboard were using big AT port, mouse are serial port; Board were mostly AT form factor, difficult to find those PSU; and the BIOS likely won't read more than 504MB/528MB due to CHS.

Thus I think the best hardware to re-live the old time is Socket 370(Socket7 if you love to mess with jumpers), Windows up to WFW3.11 have no issue.

Kids these won't have chance to suffer Half-life at 10 FPS on Pentium MMX 233 with software rendering because no 3D video card or AGP slot to put one.

Or experience the huge jump from Celeron 433 to a Athlon XP 1700+.

and that Pentium MMX is seriously OP compared to the Apple 2+, which cost around SGD10K at that time IIRC.

Harlow.

For those who've sent in requests above, I'll be heading back to the old office one last time later this week with other admin staff (my pass will no longer work), so I'll see if I can find some of the above and bring them back.

I'll update next week.

Is that turbo button that pushes the pentium to 266Mhz right?

The turbo button is for the really old DOS games, any 233 or 266MHz CPU is already way too fast for them assuming the button even actually works.

BTW anybody has pics of 90s SLS pricelists? Earliest I have only until 1998, lol.
