@thomasfuchs not that I don't lovr it, but it looks like the most boring computer possible XD
@Efi it’s amazing, it had MCGA graphics, ahead of what 8bit and even Amiga offered of the time (1987), Plus the best keyboard ever made (Model M)
@thomasfuchs That one *is* surprisingly cute!
@tvdv It has audio out for… the PC speaker. In the form of a 1/4” connector. Sort of not taking itself seriously there.
@tvdv but it also has two 8bit ISA slots, which is great as you can add a sound card. Together with the built in MCGA graphics (320x200 with 256 colors) it’s a real neat early PC.
@tvdv plus manuals designed by Massimo Vignelli 👌
@thomasfuchs Oh! You got it *very* complete?
My first non-Commodore PC was a used PS/2 Model 55 (SX, I think?) I picked up back in '95/'96.
@thomasfuchs I bet a space-saving Model M would go so well with that machine! 😍
@amdt I actually have one, need to do new glamour shots
@thomasfuchs I miss that one.
@thomasfuchs I had one of these with a 720 KB floppy drive!
I learned to program HTML in EDIT.COM on one, actually! lol
@thomasfuchs Memories! We had a bunch in high school, but they had dual 720k floppy drives. iirc this was the only PS/2 model that took ISA cards.
@Mycroft yes, has two 8-bit ISA slots, for example for a hard disk controller (hard disk can go in place of one of the disk drives) and a sound card.
@Mycroft another popular card at the time was a real-time clock perhaps in combination with a extra I/O ports
