    Default Tandy 4000

    Is it's case identical to the 3000hl's? What about the p/s?

    A quick check of specifications on Radio Shack Support https://web.archive.org/web/20150602...s&ID=001001001:

    3000HL: 6.25 x 17 x 15.6875, 32.7 lbs, 135w ps
    4000: 6 1/8 x 19 x 18, 32 lbs, 192w ps

    Visually different also.

    Wow I had no idea. I had suspected they'd take the same mobo even. Shoot so I bought that case for no good reason. I gueas I could stick anything I want in it though.

    The one on eBay from elizabeth***? $80+shipping to Oregon killed it for me. If so, the mb may be good. Stick a 386 16Mhz, a couple 256k Simms, and some I/O cards into it; if it's good, winner, winner, chicken dinner.

    And that was a revised mb for a 387 and not the earlier one for a 287.

    Did she have 2? Either that or she lowered the initial to to 5$. I won it for 26$. Plus shipping of course.

    I looked, she had another complete 1, started at.99.

    Something tells me the mobo ain't no good. As the cpu has been pulled. I wasn't counting on it working, and I utterly despise vintage mobos with any sort of asics. So I planned to put whatever inside it. I have a 3000HD now, took me bloody forever to find one. Would be a shame to sell it as a result. But who knows. It is *not* the earlier discreet logic version. And it's serial# is 006660 or something like that. It gives me the willies frankly. Infernal beast that it is.
