This is the story of the first IBM PC - the computer that's the original ancestor of one you probably still own. Today, nearly 40 years after its introduction, modern PC's are used for everything from the kinds of business applications the system was originally designed for, to scientific work, to high-end gaming. But it all started back in 1981 with the IBM 5150.
If you're looking for a more personal take on this computer, watch for my upcoming review of this IBM 5150!
If you want your own IBM PC, they're not cheap but they are plentiful on Ebay, and I'd love it if you used my affiliate link: https://ebay.to/2Nmzcaa
