I also have an AT&T branded NEC Versa Dock (DS Docking Station) for the 4 NEC Versa, and they all share a handful of Cisco Aironet LMC-352 PCMCIA 802.11b cards between each other for WiFi, a Versa Video DV Capture Card (NogaTech Nogavision), and a Xjack ethernet card ATM because the Dock is out of commission (2 230K resistors in the power section burned up).

I just got the Moondog and the Compaq from a colleague who wanted to get rid of them. The Compaq and Moondog are a work in progress and getting fixed up. The Moondog has a PC Chips M912 motherboard in it which is changing my darker view of PcChips.

Creeping Net 486 is technically a 2012 model but the motherboard is a 1995 FIC 486-PVT I bought from someone on the forum back in 2012 to replace the ASUS board that died on a previous 486. This one is really my "daily driver" desktop of the lot, with the M/75 being the "daily driver" laptop.
