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.
