    I have a project which only requires a computer of about 166 mHZ or better. Must be a desktop because I need two serial ports. Where would be a good place to find a reliable older computer?

    Thanks,

    Adam.

    I'd try Ebay or your local newspaper. Heck, even a local computer trade show. Those are more like artifacts... I'll sell you my first computer. It was a 100MHz, 8mb RAM, 1GB hard drive... all for the low, low price of $3000 (just looking to make my money back) [​IMG]
    Seriously though, you might just be better picking up something by E-machines from Best Buy for a couple hundred bucks.
