Thread: IBM dedicated tape drive to 5150?

  1. #1

    Default IBM dedicated tape drive to 5150?

    Hi
    Was there an IBM 5150 tape drive, that IBM sold under own brand, and was specially made for IBM 5150?
    Thank You for answering in advance

    It certainly wasn't announced with the 5150.

    Given it was floppy based, and and even the 10 Mbyte drive could be backed up on say 30 floppies, I can't see any use for one...

    The O&A for the 5150/5160 certainly don't talk about one.
