    Never let it be said that the UK won't fight back...found this gem on eBay today:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Original-...:rk:2:razz:f:0

    For the bargain price of 1495 (just shy of $2000 US) you could be the proud owner of an (admittedly quite good condition) 5170 case with a generic 286 motherboard fitted, VGA graphics card and a crappy early 90's rubber dome keyboard. A completely out of place LCD monitor is shown with the system, but just to add insult to injury this monitor isn't included (despite being pretty old and worthless itself so hard to see why the seller wouldn't just throw it in). It's also collection only...guess there was no margin left to cover postage costs

    It's got four memory cards in it!

    I see 5 memory cards; the leftmost one being a serial+parallel+memory multi card.

    I think it's a lower-profile one in slot 8 (see VGA connector) that's not visible because it's obscured by the multi-I/O one in slot 7.

    I see the card layout thus:

    1: hard/floppy controller
    2: blank
    3: memory
    4: memory
    5: memory
    6: memory
    7: memory+multi I/O
    8: VGA
