    Default Wanted: Very small 486 computer

    Looking for a very small 486 desktop for a project, like one of those tiny Unisys machines or something along those lines. Must be in nice shape and my only criteria is it has to have either a removable cpu or 487 slot, and at least one isa slot for the upgrades I want to install. I have an Evergreen 486 cpu upgrade and a Windows Sound System I want to install in something very small.

    Won a little AT&T Globalyst 510 on ebay for like $35 shipped! Dead hard drive and a little rough around the edges but not bad at all

    I guess I'm looking for a little 486 again. The AT&T I bought arrived completely smashed. No fault of the seller and I got a refund but it looked like someone dropped the box off a building...

    Ouch!

    That totally sucks!

    Also, what's your definition of "small"?

    Would something like this be small enough for you?

    My Packard Bell has never given me any problems which were it's fault, the Packard Haters can stuff it! :

    That's a terrible shame about the 486 getting smashed. I hope you have good luck getting another small one. The only slightly smallish machine I have here is a Pentium 200MMX machine from the dreaded Packard Bell, one of those Multimedia D1000 machines, so it has no expansion slots. Reminds me very much of the LC Macs, albeit a bit taller. It's 3.5 inches tall, by 14 inches wide by 14.75 inches deep. I've been having a fun time fixing it. I wish you the best of luck in your endeavor. By the way do you have a size requirement on what you are looking for?

    My main requirements are either a removable cpu or a 487 slot, and 1 or 2 isa slots (2 if the video chipset is kind of crap so I can run a video and a sound card). I'd like it to be as small as possible, like 1 3.5" floppy drive and that's it on the front, and basically just as small as possible. The AT&T was about 10 or 11" wide and 3" tall or so
