IBM's historic PC was clunky, slow and very expensive

Just like today's models. Wait, they sold those to Lenovo.

I had a later version of this model, with dual floppies and a color monitor (and likely more memory and a faster processor), but otherwise just like this one. That thing was a beast. Kinda wish I still had it, but where the heck would you display such a thing?

  1. Fun Fact: IBM's technical refresh program is so far behind that if you are using anything faster than an 800MHz machine you cannot get upgraded. Two of my co-workers are still using 15 pound paper weights known as A22's that come standard with a 1GHz CPU & a whopping 256MB of RAM.
