My System Specs

Default Before I pull out the saw... WANG2200

Well, I just wanted to get some feedback to know if this beast is worth any money to a collector before I mod it up for a home server.

I came into possession of this computer when it was donated to Vancouver Island University in 1994, before then it had been installed at CFB Nanaimo. At that time it was functional when hooked up to a terminal and it has been in dry/heated storage ever since.



Thats a 8 inch floppy, not a DVD and it has a whopping 8 Megabyte HDD



Also has max Ram upgrade, FOUR z80 cpu's a couple of 8080's and a printer controller card. You can run 4 terminals off this rig. I beleive they were manufactured around '79-'81 and made of heavy gauge enameled steel and BRASS (wtf).



If there is no market for this ( I'm hoping for an appleII reaction) then I will be carefully packing and storing all boards/cables and building in my home server and gaming rig, possibly off one super WC loop into this monster 200lb case.

Have a great week-end

Yeah... gotta do something about the title. Every time I've seen it my mod spidey-sense kicked in because my mind was parsing just the 3rd, 4th, and the first 4 letters of the 7th word...... ;)
