I remember when Micron made computers.
I still have a functional PII-350 of theirs.
I had a really nice flight sim setup on my last one. Miss it, but it’s been years.
Great if you’re running Windows XP (just as long as you can up the RAM to 1 GB), but I’d rather get a machine that can run x86-64 instructions so I can run Windows 7 (64-bit memory addressing is vastly superior because Microsoft incorporated a lot of memory protection features found only in 64-bit memory addressing mode).
Actually, I still have Win 2000 on it i believe. I’ve got a better machine, but it’s just cool this one still runs, and has done such continuously since then (1997) with maybe a few hundred hours of off time until recently when I took it down to switch desks.
You too? I had a P-200 Micron. As I recall we paid over $3000 for it back in 96 or 97.
Yup, I think it was ~$2700 then, but I bought way ahead of the power curve and it didn’t get passed up significantly for 4 years or so...
It literally ran nearly 24/7 for as many years as they were up, doing SETI calcs too...
