    Question Help Identifying this Case/computer

    New one here, from Prince Edward Island presently but shortly moving to Winnipeg, Canada. In preparing to move I discovered an old computer I used to use years ago and I wonder if it's of any value/use to anyone. I do not collect computers but have a strong aversion to trashing anything manufactured/engineered. I can hardly throw out nuts, bolts and washers.. yes, yes, I've heard of OCD. Anyway this computer is pretty old and I'm hoping someone might be good enough to help me identify what it is and let me know if it's useful or if I should indeed trash it. I've taken photos of it but don't know if I am supposed to post them here. Can someone advise please? Big thanks

    Or you can use Picasa by google, it's free. But definitely post them, we'll see if we can help.

    Thanks Chris, all I needed to know. I'll send it to the scrapheap.

    I think Commodore PC was using this case on their 486 and Pentium multimedia systems just before they went under.

    Nooo.... don't send it to the scrapheap! it's not vintage by the forums standards, but older computers work great for playing old DOS games...

    I'd love to find a case like that. Do it up in faux woodgrain...
