Thanks to a heads up about this several years ago by Sellam, I started
collecting real IBM cards, software, computers, etc. However, it has
been a year or so since I've seen real IBM PCs or ATs except for the
PS/2 stuff. In this latest cleanup/throw out binge, at least I get a
chance to find and see it again :).
