 Sorry for the reposted sales ad people but I need to move these quick...I
still have 6 that aren't spoken for.

 I just picked up a dozen Dell 425s/NP (same as the 425s/P NetPlex) machines
last night in place of
 payment for work done for someone. They all work great and look like
 new. Each has 4 mb ram and most have 213mb hard drives, some 120mb. A
 cdrom can be installed as there is a closed off 5.25" baywhich can be
 used by opening the cut out in the front bezel. They run a 486SX-25
 processor and are in a very durable low profile steel desktop case. Each
 has built in serial, parallel, mouse, keyboard and video ports. You use
 a PS/2 style keyboard or an adapter, and use either the PS/2 style
 mouse port or one of the serial ports. They each have 3 spare ISA slots
 as well and a 3.5" floppy and IDE hard drive interface. All onboard
 jumpers are plainly marked and onboard video can be disabled to
 accomodate a separate video card. BIOS is easy to get into as well and
 very easy to work with. RAM is 72 pin SIMMs. Beige in color, good
 condition. Dell's info (see address below) shows all the upgrades and changes
that you can make on it.

 Most had DOS and Windows 3.11 and many had OS/2 originally. Win95 will
 function well on them with added RAM. These would make excellent linux
 boxes as well, or even a low buck machine for those odd tasks or for
 the kids. Each has been tested and loaded with MSDOS boot only. Add your
 own operating system, monitor, keyboard and mouse for a sweet little
 machine. They've been tested with both mono and color VGA monitors.

 I can add one of the 2S/2P cards I have if you desire additional ports,
 for $3.00 more. Will include setup docs.

 I traded these for a $300 debt long overdue so $300 * 12 is $25 each.
 That's what I need from each plus the shipping via USPS (insured). They
 weigh roughly 22 lbs each for shipping.

 Drop me a line at RHBLAKE_at_BIGFOOT.COM if interested. if I'm able to get
 my video capture back in use soon I can send out clips of one of them.
 I'm located in central KY (zip 42726) and if someone is nearby and would
 like to pick one up they can contact me to arrange a daytime meeting.
 These need to go soon so contact me quick so I can hold one for you. I
 prefer to get payment by money order but personal checks are fine if you
 don't mind wating an additional 8-10 days for it to clear.

In addion, Dell's support site has info and pics of these machines starting
at http://support.dell.com/oti/dta/4XXSIP/index.htm for those wishing this
