IBM 5100: Before
I was able to acquire an IBM 51oo after many many months of pursuit. It is in rough shape but I was expecting that. It’s not often these come up for sale so you basically take anything you can get (if the price is right).
This will be a wonderful restoration but I have little faith that this one will run again. Did I mention it was in rough shape…? Here are some pics. I will definitely have an “After post” but I am not counting on it ever working. It is still a treasure to have.
