This was taken at my last workplace. I never really took much interest in computers until very recently so I always just used my father's old machine. Recently I've been getting more into whats inside this thing so I've been dabbling about and I've also been thinking into investing in Windows Seven when it comes out.

here is mine!

I like ps3 better so don't mind the suxbox there-_-

28" monitor and a base non-modded (yet) dell XPS, Razor Lachsies mouse, egenomic keyboard.

Mountian BREEZE one the desk, way better then dew.

Then black cloth to the left side of the keyboard is there because the desk edge is sharp and hurts to have arm there for long times (ie. WoW raiding, long internets, gaming in general)

Any questions?

Some questions for op if he's still around:

  • Is that an IBM PC XT? (8088)
  • Does it still boot?
  • How much RAM does it have? (Max is 640KB - actually it's 1MB, but the upper 384KB are not accessible on an 8088)
  • What version of DOS are you using? (I think latest you can use on 8088 is 3.30)
  • Is that a CGA monitor or monochrome?
  • Do you have a hard drive in there somewhere? If so what model is it?

Oh, and can we have MOAR HI-RES pickchuz of this BEAUTY in action?

Wow, I didn't expect I'd receive so much enthusiasm. The monitor is monochrome and it is, yes, an 8088 without a hard drive - it just runs on a cassette. It still boots. It uses 640kb and actually MS-DOS 5.0 which runs fine.

You should get yourself a CGA monitor (lurk some time on ebay as they pop up periodically, or look on google). There's some CGA cards on ebay too (there's a nice ATI DB9 for sale now). Then you can play Oregon Trail in colors on this thing.
For hard drives you can look for an ST-225 (20 MB - on ebay there's one real cheap right now and the seller says it's working). Alternately you can go for an ST-412 (10 MB - what I used to have) or an ST-251 (a whopping 40MB, but I don't know if it'll work with an 8088). Or you can go with the first one ST-506 (5MB - not much, but you have enough room for DOS).
A hard drive will require an ISA controller card. I'm not too knowledgeable on where to find those, or even what make or model to get, but you can ask here http://www.vintage-computer.com/vcforum/index.php

Are you sure it's running on cassettes? I thought the things up front were two full height 5 1/4" floppy drives (never had those - always had 1/2 height drives - 360KB ones).
