    Need help identifying

    Chaps,
    I just scored a strang one,at last to me. The tower says it's an MMG by hard where house. I can't find anything on Google or Ebay. Coolest things to me are that is has a turbo booster. Has a tube style barrel key lock and a MHz LCD readout. This things so retro. Sticker on back says memory 4mb.



    I know 1st thing your gonna say. " load some dam pics" yea I know. Truth be told I have never understood how to load pics to these threads. I'll try and get a bit better educated. Thanks all.

    Question

    That is a generic shell used by many IBMs and other PC builds.
    What are the numbers off the mother board and processor ?

    "Hard Warehouse" was based in Dallas Texas - they were a distributor. Bob Moris was the service manager in September 1990. In February 1991, they had an office in Nashville TN and sold "Clarion Software" .
    No other business listings exist.

    What are the numbers on the processor ?
    The numbers you gave identify it as a Soyo board running a ... 486dx ?

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    486DX sounds very plausible. The Turbos were 386/486 machines mostly. Soyo makes sense- they sold tons of motherboards back then. At best, you're looking at a really nice sale. At worst, if it works, you should still be able to find a home for the motherboard and CPU combo.

    According to Ebay sold listings, if that is a 486dx rig, and it still runs, it could be $60 - $180.

    If it's a duel socket board, it could be worth more.
