IBM PC 5150 with no drives?

I saw an IBM 5150 today in a thrift store. The odd thing about it was
that it had no disk drives! It only had two black covers over the disk
drive bays. It seems like it came from the factory this way. It is the
first revision of motherboard with the cassette jack, so its conceivable
that it was used with a cassette recorder and was always like this. Does
anyone wish to concur on this? I'm debating if I should get it, but not
for the $20 they have it tagged for.
