"Brand new" IBM AT: Retro PC goodness

At this point, the computer has no video adapter installed, they didn't come with one. Apparently back when these were new, you'd have to buy one seperately.

Actually, it was up to the IBM dealer or reseller to add the additional options and set up the system for the end user at the time that system was manufactured.

 

 

LGR also got one of those and he mentions that (it was actually on the ebay listing).

I have an old 19" CRT in storage. I dont have a table large enough for it. I think its about a meter from screen to back of monitor. I should find a vintage computer that matches it.

Is that computer so old that charlie chaplin is on the cover of the manual?

Yeah, charlie chaplin was the mascot for the IBM PC.

Such a cool post, thanks OP. I love neatly laid out projects like these and the retrospectives and such they prompt. I only caught the tail-end of this stuff when I was a kid, but to me it's like shorter span archaeology almost (This is not me trying to call anyone old, I swear :P). Kudos!

It reminds me of keyboards on computers I used in elementary school.

Alright then, here you go 

 

 

If the mods don't like it I guess they can just delete it and I'll do it the other way or whatever. if you're bored enough you could also watch the other videos I made for this, which includes me being a dork when turning it on the first time.

OMG that is amazing!!!! I want one now xD
