What about 2144's?

Most of these PS/1s, VPs and Aptivas (especially 386, 486 and
pentiums that used slot tree card and in tower cases with
daughterslot board off the motherboard in H fashion.
 That said, this IBM interestingly used LPX factor form motherboards
down to pinouts of the tree slot on board made by IBM or using
non-ibm boards in their ibm-made cases.

While on this thing, I'm looking for a used or busted PSU and tree
slot board for my aptiva. Both parts are missing. The model is 2144
type G-1 using intel board (Advanced/MN) that worked.
Secondly, I have VP mod 638x series Type 1 motherboard (92F0388)
needs writeback cache module 256K. Failing that, do anyone got a
used either LPX factor form for pentium 60/66 or LPX pentium socket 7
motherboard for sale? I do have the P5 66 cpu.

Would be wonderful for yours to shake down your friend network on
this leads.

Back to this trackstar discussion, thanks for your patience!
