They weren't taped, they actually attach and detach from the monitor, and they were bad speakers. Theres also an awful built in mic. I think that was some business decision they made back in the day to appeal to normies.lol, my dad used to tape the speakers to the monitor like that too.
Yeah, it was 1997-8 when dell was testing the waters and lycos and that shit dog logo ruled the 'web' (It was my xmas gift)Dafug? Wasn't 512 mb RAM standard at around 2001/2002. That must have been really high end late 90s if it still came with Windows 95 and not 98 or ME.
My grandmother had one of these, or something like it. I swear it was Honeywell branded because that's where she worked for years and years, but I could be wrong. She had it from the time I was really small, and I would play a bunch of shitty games on 5" floppy like Stickybear and a bunch of other stuff I don't remember.
This was like our 3rd family computer. I think we had the model right before this one, not a Presario, but it had those same big-ear lookin' speakers on the side of the monitor.
I have a Gateway tower that looks just like that sitting in my laundry room. I think it has a Pentium III 500mhz and was made in early 2000. It's kind of useless to me but it seems like tossing it would be a waste.
I used to have an old Gateway 2000 series. It didn't have Internet capabilities but it had a decent hard drive. Used to play Command & Conquer on it all the time and some Sierra games like Missionforce: Cyberstorm.
Man the story of the Hotwheels PC was not a happy one. You were one of the lucky few who managed to get one since the company that made them went bankrupt when Mattel pulled the plug.
Ahh, I remember the games and the steering wheel that came with it. The steering wheel was a piece of shit that barely functioned, but my dad always insisted that he used it when he played my copy of Stunt Track Racer.
That game was the shit back in my day. And the soundtrack was killer.
