    I need an old school computer. I'm talking 1980's here. I was looking through a site and these caught by eye the most:

    THE VICTOR 9000
    Released: 1982
    Price: US $4,995 (128K RAM)
    CPU: Intel 8088 @ 5 MHz
    RAM: 128K - 896K
    Display: 800 x 400 graphics
    80 x 25 text
    Expansion: 4 internal slots (nonstandard)
    Ports: 2 serial, 1 parallel
    Storage: 2 internal 5 1/4-inch floppies
    OS: CP/M-86 on diskette
    MS-DOS on diskette

    Introduced: May 1980
    Released: Spring 1981
    Price: US $3495 w/128K RAM
    US $3815 with monitor
    How many? 65,000 TOTAL (four year)
    CPU: Synertek 6502A, 2.0 MHz
    RAM: 128K, 512K max.
    Display: Color composite video
    16 colors at 280 X 192.
    16 shades at 560 X 192
    Ports: Two serial ports
    External floppy port
    Expansion: Four internal slots
    Storage: Internal 143k 5-1/4 inch floppy
    External floppy drive
    OS: Apple SOS (Sophisticated OS)

    And a few others...

    My point is, I need an old computer like that, but it needs to have a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk drive. I think the 3.5 inch floppy was created in the 1990s, so I don't think I'm going to get something like those up there. But please post any computers that fit my requirements.

    AND, if you have one in your possession and is willing to ship it for something, contact me.
    I know that this might be a quite unhelpful question, but what do you need a floppy disk drive for?
