    Exclamation WANTED: Early IBM Microcomputers (5140, 5150, pcjr)

    Hi everyone, I can't say I've been part of this forum for a very long time. As a matter a fact, this is my first post. But I have been reading posts and threads for a couple years now.

    Nonetheless, I'm currently looking for a few early IBM microcomputers to complete my collection.

    IBM 5140 - PC convertible
    IBM 5150 - The OG, with 2 floppy drives.
    IBM PCjr - Hopefully, including monitor and display.
    IBM 5153 - Cga monitor
    IBM model F keyboard

    I've already restored and repaired 2 IBM 5170's, a 5155 portable xt, a 5160 and 5151 monitor and a ps/2 model 70. I'm looking to complete my working collection, so I can make an informative documentary of sorts on the whole range of early IBM microcomputers. If you happen to keep up with some of the retro youtubers, there are few (except for 1 or 2) up to date and good videos on the topic. Please, shoot me a message if you have any of these systems and are willing to sell!

    - Chris

    Please update your profile--otherwise the forum will have to assume that you reside in Tristan da Cunha and shipping costs will be disastrous.

    Yes of course. However many of them are very overpriced, untested etc. I'd feel much better paying a fair price, for something that I either know is working, or I know what the problem is.

    ...and there's a warehouse closing up for good down in Texas that this guy over at Vogons bought all this amazing hardware from. Computer Reset in Dallas.

    Hi, yes I have seen the ebay listings, and I am always looking. But many sellers want way too much, and I feel more confident buying from someone who knows about the computer
