Just saw this on eBay, not sure if anyone is interested.

Seems like a Rev A case, with original 63w Australian power supply. Poor thing's running a hard disk too.
Non-original motherboard and add-in cards, and the case has been cut to fit the XT-style keyboard plug.

Bobby.

I saw that last week. Surprising amount of interest for something that's so hacked up.

Small world the seller is not too far from where I work. Too hacked up for my liking and the phrase "excellent condition IBM 5150 PC" tells me to avoid this one.

$305 AUD! Wow... didn't think it would fetch that much.
