    I just picked one up a few weeks ago and have been working it over. It's an incredibly standard system except for the power supply size. Normal baby-AT motherboard, normal 3.5" floppy and hard drives. I _think_ the gas plasma display (orange monochrome) just runs off a vga vesa feature connector. All the power connectors are standard AT style, so you should be able to use a normal too big to fit in the case pre-ATX power supply for testing purposes.

    What's happening with it? Does the screen light up? Floppy drive make noises? Fan on the right side spin? Testing-wise, it's a generic AT style 486 desktop.
