i used to play pool of radiance and moria on a system very similar to this one back in the day... when VESA was all the rage... oh the memories *sigh*
I wouldn’t recommend sex, drugs or insanity for everyone, but they’ve always worked for me

I have a couple, you can't have the "correct" one from my 5150 but it's rubbish anyway, the layout is odd and some of the keys don't work properly.

But I have a couple of old Model M's and a Model F, any of which should be fine. I'll keep at least one or 2 but I think I have 5+.

Love your project and others like it:

If you are interested check out my thread from 10 years ago about my own IBM PC XT. A 1986 model which I still have and is still a working system!

Or, my genuine IBM 'portable', which I also still have and is also still functional.

Yep I'm glad I'm not the only one still keen on these old things - bYrd has a thread about meet-ups so I'm hoping something gets off the ground in Melbourne

Also I've got a bucketload of the original software that came with my 5150, so if you need a copy of any of the programs I can try to assist - although I will have to find my stash of 360kb DD disks

Now just gotta track down an IBM 5100
