Yeah, just one would be enough. I might have to hone up my SMD soldering skills about 5 levels to put the CPU on there though! :-)
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

If you get one with bent pins then it'll take you forever to get everything lined up and soldered. Even with all the pins straight they are a pain to solder.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Noted. I'd have to use hot air on that scale of device.

I don't s'pose you know of a good source for them?

I've built four and all four will run at 50mhz for at least two hours each but with a heatsink.
