no..my copy is at work. IMHO If you don't have to have it shipped, it has the manuals, disks, and is in general complete, and especially if it has a hard drive or original box I would *consider* paying $60.... I don't remember what the collectible microcomputer says, but my estimate is that you would pay a 20% premium on a 5155 (XT portable) vs. a similar 5160 (XT). The range of XT's is $2 to $150+ What's the most anyone out there paid for an IBM PC, XT, or AT era machine? Does anyone in this group have a Rev A motherboard IBM PC with DOS 1.x original disks? I would think that one of those would top $500. BD At Friday, 13 January 2006, you wrote:

Picking the right number between the limits is definitely an art.
