I'm going to be 70 and computer literate. I kept mine. I still have all of it with sound system and all books. Still works. Soul love to sell it for about $500.

Had one of these, the sx was to denote that it was an emulated 486 ... but cheaper. Can't believe I sold a 4 acre parcel of land to buy it.

PCWorld rated the PB Legend as the worst desktop of all time. Rock bottom in reliability and such poor quality that new PC's were occasionally found with used parts inside. Great article:

The Packard Bell 386SX/16 was my first PC. It originally came with 1MB RAM (I later upgraded to 4MB) and 40MB hard drive (I later upgraded to 60). It also originally came with MS-DOS 3.3, which I later upgraded to MS-DOS 5 & 6 and Windows 3.0 & 3.1, and ran MS Office Pro 4.0 which came in a huge box of manuals and a 3-4" stack of 3.5" floppy disks. Also had tons of "bootleg" software to play with like WordPerfect 5.1, Lotus 123, Freelance & Harvard Graphics. dBase III+ & IV, and on & on. Also had 2400, 14.4 & 28.8 external modems and participated on CompuServe, Prodigy, AOL and BBSs in the early '90s. That computer upgraded easily and never missed a beat. Good Times!
