Thanks for the heads up, I like the price :wink: but was hoping to score something a bit more complete. I have a case that could go in but would still need RAM+HDD+most of the accessories to make it go.

Nah, no Windows necessary. Whatever this thing turns out to be will be dual-booting FreeDOS & Damn Small Linux when I get it up and running. :mrgreen:

Swivel, will be contacting you if the one from Trademe doesn't work out. Still waiting for the guy to reply to my emails...

Hah, DSL's my weapon of choice on my wee Atom laptop, fantastic little OS :D
molten_media on TradeMe, which is also my place of work. No particular interests apart from passing on some of the gems that come through the door.

I'll put it to one side for you.

Probably format the drive as it came in for re-cycle, so has some ones info on it.

The reason I linked to that auction was the machine with it would've made a good tweener and was up your way.

Swivels offer sounds good. Tommo is a man of his word. He sent me quite few 720k 3.5" a while back. We've got a prop. balancer at work that uses them.

Oops! Somehow I completely missed that it came with the PC too. That's what I get for skimming threads when tired. Thanks for posting that up.

Not needed however as the one I found on Trademe shortly after I posted this thread came in finally. Seems like it will do the job, plus it looks like a piece of lab gear which is always a bonus.
