Found my spare Seagate that goes in my Hyundai 80286 comp. Made some pics but my posting site is down right now - maybe later.  This is a trip down memory lane.

SEAGATE  ST-251-1,  5 1/4' platters, 1/2 ht., 40MB. Price in 1988 was $ 479.00 - sure hurt to buy it then. Still works - little on the slow side tho. Little heavy too.

No it's not on line.  Don't have a modem in it.  I have a few spare ones tho, I'll look them up and see if it will talk.  When I said it was slow - it's a 12MHz machine 80286,  640kB of ram and that ST-251 wasn't a barn burner.  I'll just have to see what I can do.  Let you know ,  down the road.  It's running DOS 3.11, had to put that in to be able to have a 1.44MB floppy drive - they were new back then. Good Microsoft or Logitek mouse would run you  $50 to $75 dollars.  Good Old Days -HUH !!!!!!


Tired and Retired   :haha:  :haha:  :haha:

Anybody ever fool with a Touch Screen Hewlett-Packard? Weird sucker !!!!  Ball to use.
