It may look like industrial equipment, but the Monorail PC was sold as a low-cost Windows 95 PC for first time computer buyers in the mid 90s! Probably the first desktop with an integrated color LCD monitor, too.

  • Well my first "real" computer (that wasn't a DOS based computer) was my eMahcines 366 celeron computer, which had Windows 98. All of my previous computer had DOS as a basis for an OS and then Windows 3.1 or Windows 95 installed on top.

  • 9:55 - And today nearly 330 million people in the US are constantly connected to the “information superhighway”, “cyberspace”, or whatever you want to call it, through at least a few separate devices per person. 4:3 aspect ratio is also extinct, as well as video dithering. Times have most definitely changed.

  • Under the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975, manufacturers cannot legally void your hardware warranty simply because you altered the software of an electronic device. In order to void the warranty without violating federal law, the manufacturer must prove that the modifications you made directly led to a hardware malfunction. It makes me so mad when the companies say they will void the warranty lol

  • I actually have a later edition Monorail PC that's still taking up my desk space and runs least, as perfectly as it did when it was new. Mine is the later 166Mhz model with the 12.1 inch screen, but sadly, it's still a passive matrix and looks like complete butt. Comically, the Bright/Dim control program is reversed in this revision, with the "bright" button dimming the awful screen and the "dim" button making it brighter. The peripherals are the same, as is the case, aside from the larger screen opening. I also have the ISA NIC installed, and if you were curious, the only two models that Monorail approved for use were the 3Com 3c509B-TPO or the SMC EtherEZ 8416T. Other ISA cards can be installed but the maximum dimensions are paltry - 2.40 Inches tall, 6.275 Inches long. The NICs were just off the shelf parts that Monorail mailed out to CompUSA in plastic bags, and either CompUSA or the user had to manually BEND the screw tab of the card's slot cover upward 90degrees so the entire cover could sit flat inside the case. You then had to install a custome bracket by simply sliding it over the card's slot cover and then screwing this bracket into the case. Oh, and the NIC was also shipped with a replacement "Warranty Void if Removed or Broken" sticker for CompUSA to slap on the case after charging you who knows how much to put in this stupid card. I may be able to scan the NIC card install guide if you want it. Feel free to get in touch.
