My test group continues to support testers that use old DOS and W95 PC's with ISA slots, etc. I remember seeing "Brick" style PC's a few years ago that had all the legacy ports and even flash hard drives. Anyone have experience with box's like this or know where I can look at some models?? Thanks!!!!

In NYC many of the elevators have lcd screens that are controlled by a brick pc. It is exactly what you are looking for, but unfortunately they were custom made. So I could not get you any. These units are pretty cool, flash hard drive, vga on board, serial on board and two isa slots

Try EBAY. You should be able to find a few there at a reasonable cost

All the best on your quest!

I got there by Googling "Embedded PC" (without the quotes).

It is several years now, but we had very good experience using Advantech equipment for the Taiwanese Weather Service.
