I have a BeBox dual 133MHz that I purchased about six years ago but one of the plastic caps that go on top of the front plastic bezel is broken and I wanted to know if anybody out there might have an extra one for sale.
Also, I may possibly sell this computer if anybody is interested.

When Be closed, I purchased a large number of BeBoxes and parts. I still have the parts. Should anyone require anything, please contact me with your request, I also have printed documentation, and possibly some software

Hello. I have a BeBox. It is not giving a video signal. Seems to boot up fine and makes all the right noises. Blinkenlights work. There is no signal going to the monitor. I have tried several monitors, cables, and two different video cards in every PCI slot. Any ideas?

Contact me: hapaziz at the "g"

If you really want a BeBox, I would go for the 133Mhz version. The 66Mhz version is too slow to run any version of BeOS very well. I owned a 66 for about 3 years, and it was a sad day when I let it go, but it was more or less useless to me by that point.

LOVE BeOS! it was everything that AmigaOS and MacOS Classic could had been.

I used to run it on a really flaky AMD system I had that would crash constantly running windows, but not BeOS! it was rock solid. There is even a large $ion of software for it too.

I later moved on to ZetaOS and now HAIKU.

I do have one that is taking dust in a box. Looking for an enthousiast or collector to give this beauty a second life.

Amazing machine. It was the very first computer I ever used at the young age of 6 years old (back in 1999). The machine is still my primary computer (this message was typed on it). Runs fast and BeOS takes up barely any RAM. The geekport is really fun too allowing you to expand and fool around with hardware without the issue of damaging your machine.

What a geeky computer!

It should be noted that while the company that made the BeBox and BeOS no longer exists, it has inspired the open source Haiku OS, which aims to be source and binary compatible with BeOS (at least, x86 BeOS). Ironically (given the original BeOS's attempt to be lightweight by not having backwards compatibility needs), wanting to be binary compatible with BeOS limits some of the design decisions taken by Haiku, for example, having to use a rather old version of GCC.
