IBM 5150

All of the PS/2 line that I've ever worked with (including my 9595) have it
but I checked my Server 320 and it doesn't appear to have it.

I did have a clone I picked up once, an 8088 XT clone, that came up to BASIC
in ROM - seems someone pulled a BASIC ROM from a big blue and put it in the
socket that takes the BASIC ROM, it didn't come from the factory that way.

-> All the genuine IBM PC's had ROM basic (I think some of the PS/2 might
-> have had this as well). This made the ROM difficult to clone while
-> maintaining full 'IBM Compatibility'.
