    (RARE VINTAGE ES CPU) Intel Pentium MMX 233 MHz Q140 - Socket 7

    Well they got it for free technically and Engineering Sample "ES" is still the property of Intel (or who ever made the sample item) I have never seen them actually want it back or even make an attempt to get it back why would they want a 25 year old CPU back now? maybe when it was a year or two...

    USB 3 "B" conenctor - Why?

    Probably cheaper than making a whole new design just add more pins and call it done! A USB 2.0 will fit in those (with 2.0 speeds obviously) same with the micro versions the "extra" pins enable the USB 3.0 speeds
