 Are you saying that the original 16KB 5150 had four rows of 4KB dips?

 As noted, I don't know. I'm hoping that someone like Tony does.

 Your hopes are dashed. The only pricey IBM PCs are the ones that had 16K
 installed at the factory and weren't upgraded. The 64K ones are relatively
 common, although worth keeping; it's like the difference between a Lisa One
 and a Lisa 2.
