Back in April, RetroManCave held a charity auction for these IBM NetVista PCs he'd restored. Wanting to support the cause, I bid on one of them -- and won! So let's check out the IBM NetVista Type 6792 from 2001, running a 1.6GHz Pentium 4 CPU and 16MB Nvidia Vanta graphics.

  • had one of these p3 1ghz, loaded some things faster than my friends p4s, it blew their minds. no AGP though, but I bought a fx5200 pci long ago. that gpu went celeron 2.4ghz -Z celeron 333mhz -> pentium 3 1ghz -> pentium HT 2.8ghz

  • Just a little pro-tip: You better make copys of your original discs of games and use them in your drives. You never know if you someday get a drive that has some mechanical issues which could spin up the disc but then lose contact to it and the disk will fly around in the drive and shatter into pieces. I saw exactly this happening in a drive a friend from the past had. But he used a burned disc inside, so it was no big problem. Do not just risk it to lose original discs. They age over time and become less flexible plus the rapid spin inside the faster drives, puts lots of physical force on them. There is software you can find online, that does exact 1:1 copys including the copyprotection. I had such software back in the past and know about it. It made perfect images. This way you can replicate the discs and use burned backups for gaming or testing purposes. This way you save your originals and they stay protected in your collection. :) "CloneCD" and "Alcohol 120%" should both help you out for good :)

  • Can anyone over in UK explain how the NHS accepts charity? It's tax-funded... I mean, I get charity for patients recovering in some way or something adjacent, but donations directly to the NHS or a hospital or something? That just seems... Weird, somehow.

  • These machines were AWFUL. The floppy / hard drive bracket liked to poke holes the ribbon cables unless you folded them just right when closing it up. I had to support 3 campuses full of these damn things, over 200 in total (maybe not this exact NetVista model, but the same internal chassis). These machines were junk when new and by the time I inherited them they were circling the drain. I can't count how many I chucked in the dumpster because they were dead, dead, dead. The build quality was just horrible.

  • PXE is for booting from a network drive. Some computers have that set as the primary boot option, so you'll see a message that it failed to boot since there's no network boot media.

  • I may be wrong but I'm almost sure I was running NFS PU on a P1 233 MMX with a Voodoo 2 (12mb version) and I want to say 32mb ram but it may have been 16mb) just fine. Of course I cannot remember the settings I used but I do remember a friend having poor performance on a P3 and we figured out it must've been a cpu thing rather an overall power things.
