My unit is a Dolch Pac 486 Intel 486DX2 cpu running at 66 mhz. Runs Win 3.1. Color VGA screen. The price tag on this thing was just under $9.000 in 1995, still a lot of money payed for a computer.

I got this computer from a friend in Bucharest. The computer was OK back in 2016 now the HDD has failed. I had replaced the HDD , the RTC battery and installed Windows95.
