IBM Vintage PCs

The IBM vintage PCs list

This table, at present, should include all "Family One" and Personal System/2 models. All information had been extracted from the original IBM announcement letters. The list is available in three versions:


then date
(all 9557 models follow 8557s)

strictly follows model number
(85xx models all before 95xx)
follows announcement date
(this list is incomplete)

An introduction is also available (also explaining how to retrieve model and type number of old IBM PCs).

Charts & Stats

I draw some charts and statistics from the lists:


Fastest available IBM PCs

Longest lived IBM PCs

Shortest lived IBM PCs


Memory/hard disk capacity, market life and prices

Table of IBM hard disks
