Thin clients DO NOT HAVE CD/DVD DRIVES! (though a USB one can be used).The number of people returning these for this reason is getting out of hand. This listing is for a hybrid DOS/Windows XP retro gaming and/or legacy machine.
SoundBlaster audio is functional in real DOS mode. 1.66 GHZ Atom N280 Processor. 1 GB DDR3 RAM clocked at 1333 MHZ.
16 GB Solid State Hard drive (SATA DOM). Intel Express Series 4 Integrated Graphics (GL40/82801 chipset). Yamaha ymf724 Sound Card with OPL3 sound (installed on PCI slot). VGA and DisplayPort Video outputs. Broadcom Netlink BCM 5780 Ethernet (10/100/1000).
6 USB 2.0 ports (4 rear, 2 front). Additionally 2 more USB ports internally. 1 Parallel Port (supports SPP, EPP, ECP, and ECP+EPP modes - BIOS configurable).
Dedicated PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports. Operating Systems and Hard Drive Layout.First Partition: Windows 98 (DOS) - 4 GB free space. Second Partition: Windows XP - 9 GB free space. I have modded the configuration files such that the first partition effectively acts as a DOS partition.
Upon startup, you will have 20 seconds to choose between DOS or Windows XP. If you choose DOS, it will boot directly into DOS. From that prompt, you can type "win" to launch Windows 98, though please consider Windows 98 as partially NON-FUNCTIONAL due to the lack of proper chipset and video drivers. Installed on the PCI slot is a Yamaha YMF724 sound card.
While it required several modifications to the configuration files to get it working properly, this sound card provides real OPL3 sound and Soundblaster audio in real DOS mode! It is configured on IRQ 5. While not every game is compatible, most games that support SoundBlaster audio will work great. I tested Duke Nukem 3D, Doom, Epic Pinball, Prince of Persia, Commander Keen 4, and some Apogee games, just to name a few.
Also worth noting is that GL40 chipset has a GMA 4500m integrated graphics chip. DOS compatibility on this chip is surprisingly good, including even Commander Keen 4 scrolling properly! Using Windows XP for retro-gaming. This system should play many (very) early-generation Windows XP games without issue, as well as just about any Windows 95/98 game that is XP-compatible.
Your mileage of course may vary. For comparison, the integrated graphics have a Passmark score of 45, putting it on par with a GeForce 6200 or Radeon 9600. The CPU has a passmark score of 284 putting it on par with an AMD XP 1800+ or lower end Pentium IV. 3D Mark 2001 score was 3388. If you have any particular DOS or XP games you would like tested, let me know and I'll see what I can do to locate and test them.
The sound card add-on is brand-new. Everything else is used, though in very good condition.
Outer casing may contain some scuffs. Overall condition is A- to B. Pictures are typical of what you will receive.
