oops, slight correction to make -  When i took them out of their cases, it turns out there not 486 based, they're Pentium 75mhz. Both are Toshiba 400 CDT with Zircom PCIMIAMCIMIA Lan cards and a huge external floppy drive, pretty much the same casing as the 320 CDT i gave to Blackpanther. The '286' based Compaq has no power at the mo but i might be able to rig up a psu. Extra horse power should be perfect for a spot of Doom, Tie Fighter & Duke etc. Both appear to have win95 installed.

Also, included are a load of old comp books/magazines including a very lavishly illustrated 'program your own games for the ZX Speccy' type affair. Love these 80's Tron/Neuromancer inspired artwork.

Been thinking about getting a Saturn. Always seem to head towards RCM's and play Panzer Dragoon Zwei whenever i see it. I brought one when they first came out but traded it when the PSX came out. The lure of Wipeout was too great! I remember forking out £60 for Wipeout on release day :o

Just been given a Speccy +3. Only have one disk to try it with (Robocop) but it seems to be working o.k.
