If you give me the model number, it's on your label somewhere with 4
number, a dash then 3 number code, I will tell you what it's usually
stock configuration and it's speed? I have the hefty book on this
and too much info to take.

Gee.. :)

One comment: I wished....IBM did:
None have produced in early generation of PS/2 series faster than
25mhz anything. And design PS/2 ISA or PCI with 486 and has cache
but it did not pan out as I wished! :) But 90 models and XP series
uses processor card with different designs for each CPU type, XGA
that no one likes. Weirdo PS/2 and $$$. :( Those PS/1 and
valuepoints are still expensive through because they're still useful
especially ones that has cache and has socketed 486dx or dx2 66.
Some had Tseng et4000 which makes them really good game machines.

Price? If you could recall? :)
