If you want one of these, contact me off-list, I think I still have one kicking around the basement (from Millersburg College, IIRC ;^), but I haven't powered it up for a while...

Also, the SPARCPlug fits in a 5 1/4" full-height drive case, and if you want to add a CD-ROM and HD, you will need a dual full-height cabinet (or quad half-height)...

The IPCs with the microSPARC upgrade take 30 and 72 PIN RAM too...
