    whats your point, probably WHY ??
     
  4. no. there never was a 386MHz chip.
    386 is a processor design family, as is the 486, and the Pentiums (586, 686) they stopped using numbers so the could register the names

    anyone who knows alittle about hardware would know what they meant.

    Why did the cases have that switch for so long anyway? Last time I used one was my 386DX33 (speedy one!). I've seen these buttons on PII cases!
