Hi I ordered a refurb of eBay the first advertised one, which I wanted, the one below the second one is what I got.
I can return it but how much of a difference will it make it’s a replacement for an old Dell 400MHz.
The difference I can see is the spindle speed and buffer.
Windows 95 will be reloaded.

BIOS may limit size of drive he can fit in this old machine.

I assume this is why its less than 8G
