This new addition to our home, an IBM PS/2 Model 80 (8580-071) is almost exactly 23 years old! It has 2MB of RAM plus another 2MB on an aftermarket card, an 8-port serial card, a QIC tape drive, and a 70MB ESDI disk—5.25in full-height, of course. No front bezel or foot…yet.

The Apple Lisa should have had a 640×480 display with square pixels instead of 720×360 rectangular. Fight me.

Apparently the Atari ST not only shipped with a windowed BASIC environment, but also a LOGO one. How did I never know this?
