Agreed. Give it a few more years I guess. One thing I do like about them is they can be had for next to nothing. My 386 and last 486 were giveaways. The Compaq, ACER and DECpc 486s I bought a on TM few years ago are still running fine. The last two had both had their processors and ram upgraded by the POs, which can be an advantage as well. Retro computing on the cheap, if you will, has it's advantages.machinecoder wrote:caluser2000 wrote:Good spotting. Put a wee bid in. Early bird and all that.
Looks like Gavin from Chch is really keen on getting one. Nice to see. Another keen on older kit by the looks.
Yes Mark, its not very often you see AT keyboards on trademe for some reason,
I think those 286 - 486 DOS computers should be considered more auspicious than they are currently.

Shame really, as the key's that appear to have been copied, 'open apple' and 'closed apple', are useful modifiers on any other vintage keyboard.
I don't think I've ever used the 'windows' keys.
