Antique Wang Professional Computer - $150 (Jacobstown, NJ)
This is an old Wang Professional Computer CPU. I believe it is based on
a 286 processor. It doesn't include a keyboard or monitor. This unit
was working when I acquired it 20 years ago, but I have never used it.
It was being used to develop a multi-user database system based on
networked Wang 286 PCs. I believe the programming was done by tying
this unit into the network, so it didn't need its own keyboard and
monitor. The unit includes an 8" floppy Drive and a Quantum Q2000 hard
drive. It comes with the software, disks, and manuals shown in the
photos. Probable age is 25 years old. I didn't measure the cabinet, but
it is about 20" wide x 30" long x 24" high. It weighs about 100 - 150
LBs. It is mounted on casters, so it can be rolled around. I would like
to sell this unit to a collector, museum, or hobbyist as a complete
unit if possible. If not, I'll just disassemble it and part it out for
the rare drives and PS.
