Wow, we are getting closer to a real timeline of IBM "personal"
computers! These three systems: 5100, 5110 model 3 (5120), and System/23
Datamaster are most of the machines that preceeded the 5150 Personal
Computer. See http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/exhibits/pc/pc_1.html
for the IBM exhibit on the subject.
Like the Borroughs, we should get an oral history on how the machine was
used as well as pictures. A "pre-rescue" picture taken on location
(accountant's office) in better than cell phone quality would be a start.
