Thread: What computer did this monitor go to?

  1. #1

    Default What computer did this monitor go to?

    Hi all. I thought I had been cured of this disease, but apparently not.

    Snagged a pretty good deal on an AT Clone, this is my first time with IBM PCs, I was a Tandy guy before so forgive me if I make a mistake.

    Anyway, it came with a pretty sweet Packard Bell Color monitor. However, I can't find a pic of one anywhere, so I am curious as to what it belonged to originally...

    Here are the pics.








    Thanks guys,
    Peter

    Cool. That would make sense.

    Side topic. Will an XT Keyboard work on an AT?

    Thanks.

    That monitor looks similar to my Tatung CM-1380F, probably just rebranded as a Packard Bell.

    CM1435 might be the Tatung model number ?

    Nope... not unless it's an AT/XT switchable.

    Mikey99, wow. I looked at all of the stickers, and they pretty much match up except for the CM number. Which probably means that our monitors are slightly different models, considering the similar but different front bezel. Very interesting. Is your monitor pretty good? (Compared to say, a 5154?) I'm assuming the GNA switch allows it to emluate Green, Color and Amber monitors, is this correct?


    Stone, darn. So no Model F for me I guess. That stinks. Oh well, Model M's are cheaper...

    Thanks again guys

    Oh? Is there a good way to identify such a keyboard from other Model Fs?

    Scratch that. Just found a website detailing such differences... so nevermind.
