Went searching through some of the computer parts my dad has laying around, because he used to be a computer builder.

Then i found this thing!

I cant find my camera, but ill type out what it says on the processor:

Intel i486DX
A80486DX-33
L3049105
SX419
INTEL(m)(c)1989

S/N: 6018B1
CSS80486-33

Now isnt that ghetto.

33Mhz.

While now adays, a 1.6GHz is concidered ancient.

there isnt much of a market for it, but some of the old stuff is expensive due to its rarety...ive seen some old motherboards and cpus go for in the hundreds because there is a small demand, but no product because most of that old stuff is in the trash....

Not vintage, but still:

My dad and I were discussing how he had the high performance Commodore 64, with a 25Mhz processor... and he remembers how much of a huge jump it was when he bought a 486.

Sheldawn, why can't use use the 1.8ghz p4? Is your IBM mobo in your profile a 478 or a 423?
