In the mid-late 90's I found this beast for $5. It just continued to boot loop for no apparent reason, so I opened it up and tinkered with it. I was never able to fix it, though it helped me learn about the internals of a computer. I ended up taking the hard drive out and putting it in a 386. I kept the 80286 AMD processor as well. I think I still have it somewhere.
