    Good luck with that pricing, there may be somebody crazy enough to cough up that sort of cash for that board, but that somebody isn't me. And I'd bet a shiny new dime that the battery in the Dallas real-time clock module is long dead (which can be hacked to add an external battery, but that requires some craftsmanship).

    Perhaps the price is a bit excessive. It is probably way less than the original purchase price... These were the tits of tits in their Day. I doubt that there will ever be many more listed... Some of the original IBMers sought to make these out perform the Ibm standards.. and they did.. the ford Model "A" s sell for much more than they originally cost as well.. Hit the F1 key
    they do not need the clock to work.

    Yeah that is a little much.... granted I was the guy who paid $800 for a Reply TurboBoard 60/80.... but in my defense it came with a Pentium Overdrive 83Mhz, which those chips are getting pricy now... 64MB of RAM, and as mentioned, the Dallas module was beautifully cut and a button cell battery holder soldered and glued to the top. Like show quality work and that had value in my mind. Oh and it came with the original manual/disk.

    Well, if nothing else, the photos will come handy.
