Blonde Guy


New computer preloaded with eComStation 2.0 rc 6a


This is a new desktop computer with eComStation 2.0 installed and configured. It has a CPU with four processor cores, and is configured for SMP operation. A removable hard drive is included for fast backups. Sound, USB and wired network work. The display hardware is supported by SNAP graphics in VESA mode. Lots of useful OS/2 software is installed.

The Suntan Special Advantage

Mobopeep comes with Suntan Special. I use Suntan Special to install the software on all Blonde Guy computers. Suntan Special software can be used to install all updates to the system and its applications and to install additional applications. When newer versions of software are released, Suntan Special can keep your Blonde Guy computer up to date.


This computer has one fixed 500 GB disk and one removeable 500 GB disk. The computer can be backed up very quickly and easily by copying the contents of the fixed disk to the removeable disk. The durable aluminum removeable disk enclosure and drive trays are pleasant to use. Extra removeable drives are available on the ordering page. The removeable drive cannot be hot-swapped. The computer must be powered down to swap drives.

I have supplied sufficient RAM to allow many programs to run at once, or support virtual machines.

The USB 2.0 ports support keyboards, mice, scanners, thumb drives, cameras, MP3 players, external hard drives, floppies and CD Writers.

The DVD multi-burner can read and write dual-layer DVD media with an 8.4 GB capacity. Software to create bootable backup DVDs is included.

The display hardware is based on the Intel© Graphics Media Accelerator X4500, which provides fast graphics on the OS/2 or eComStation platforms.

Connectors for sound and USB are provided on both the front and the rear of the computer for more convenience.

A SCSI 160 adapter is included for legacy SCSI peripherals.


Although 4 GB RAM is installed, the computer will only recognize 3 GB due to hardware limitations.

Firewire support is not available for eCS. The firewire port on the front panel does not function.

There are no serial or parallel ports in the computer. One of each may be added as options on the ordering page. Adding a serial or parallel port takes one slot for each port.

Not Included

None of the following items are included: monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, ethernet cable, printer cable, USB cable. If you need any of these contact Blonde Guy for a quote.
