got the hard drive out of the way, and this thing REALLY doesn't have much inside
looks like it was manufactured in 2000 - there's a Cyrix CX5530 multipurpose IC, which i believe is the precursor to Audrey's CS5530A from National Semiconductor, and an IGS Technologies CyberPro 5005 (?video) with two Samsung ram chips near it.
for all the back-panel connector, general PCB layout, and functional similarities between this and the Acer NT-150, the board appears considerably different. coming two years later, it might be a descendant of the Acer, but it's almost two years later again, and this unit seems . . . lame?
oh, well - at least for $49 i got a hard disk drive my personal opinion (for exactly what it's worth) is:
don't bother, unless you feel like having a history lesson in how fast technology moves.
