Around here, they are at least as common as copies of DOS 1.00. Where are

Be sure that you get the 16-64K motherboard, NOT the 64-256K!
And the 63 W power supply. The first PC that I bought from IBM had a
BLACK power supply! I've only seen a few of those.
The drive is a Tandon TM100-1. Some LATER drives had IBM embossed on the
front panel; the early ones did not.
IBM did not sell a cable for the cassette port, but the pinout matches RS,
so their cable will do.
