Insides of a PP3. Possibly identifying information has been blacked out.

Computer Battery

Looking for the chipmunk trap and found my old laptop, so to speak, covered in dust and cat vomitus. A PC-4501 with an 80186 processor (7.16 MHz, though you could slow it down in the BIOS, if that was too fast for you.) Lead acid battery, two 3.5" drives, CGA graphics.

I remember playing SimCity on this puppy.

Still boots.
