• Re: Were there any 8525 system-board based systems?

    Did the 8525 shaped system board come in a non "all-in-one" system? The
    8525 would be an interesting little box if it used an external monitor...

    I'm way late to the party (don't get here often any longer, and have only
    the one computer still even set up to do the Usenet thing...)...yes. The
    Model 30-286 and the 25-286 use exactly the same planer.

    Well, that's fine - because I get to correct myself:

    ...the Model 25 lacks the RTC of the Model 30...

    The 8086-based Model 25 actually has the BIOS code to run an RTC (of the chip type and address that is on the 8086-based Model 30)...
