    Does the 486 reside on the main board?

    A plug in card. As in a coprocessor. I can't tell for sure.

    This looks more like a hack job than a "skilled upgrade"!

    The power supply made me literally laugh out loud.

    I'm also trying to figure out why the 5" floppy drive has a "720k" label on it. Quad density, or wishful thinking?

    Why handwrite "Foxconn?"

    Again, blatantly dishonest. Couldn't power on, or wouldn't power on? Why bother lying? Either say you were too lazy to try it, or admit that it just doesn't work.

    Strange that it must have been somewhat recently used with the CF card and such. Like the guy didn't know to hook that other wire to the switch to power up. BS. That thing should be pulled behind the shed and shot.

    I'm pretty sure every society has these:

    This is proof.
