20 years since the first IBM PC
Still have an 8088 at home in working order. Thinking of installing Unreal 2 on it as soon as i lay my hands on it
But seriously, does anyone else have some seriously old kit at home(no spouse jokes please ) specs and original prices would be interesting.
Downstairs, in the basement - I have an 'clone' - came from sears it's a 'Lazer Turbo XT'. It's an 8088, has a 5 1/4" floppy, a 10mb hd, and a 1200 baud modem. I've also got a CGA monitor. I fired it up a few years ago - but I think it may now be dead.
It was actually given to me by someone who went out and spent a fortune on a 486 (when those were brand new - I want to say 1988/89)
On another shelf, are the remnants of a 286 along with an EGA monitor.
I just can't throw anything away.
I have a 286 with a monochrome monitor (with remnants of a DOS menu burned into it). It has a whopping 20MB HDD, 5¼" floppy, and even has a serial mouse connector port.
I think I have an old Texas Instruments computer - basically just a keyboard that hooks up to a TV (and you can hook up a tape recorder to it if you have the right connection plug!) - somewhere in storage. But that was before the PC.
I still got a 286 with 640/512 kb ram. We got it about a week after the 80386's were released and got a SVGA monitor with it for $500. Still in working order but it makes a better footrest than a computer
