8530 XT and 286

Both of my 30-8086's. The one on top has the planar that supports the 1.44 floppy.
The IBM PS/2 Model 30 came in two types: One is an XT, the other a 286.

8530-8086 Specs From the Upper Unit in the Picture):

Intel 8086 CPU at 8 or 10MHz, I forget which...


200 MB Western Digital IDE Hard Disk, run by an Acculogic XT IDE controller

1.44MB Floppy (Originally had a 720K floppy, but this one has the planar support for both.)

MS-DOS 6.22 (with Windows 3.0, Wordperfect 6.0 for DOS, and some drawing software)

MCGA Graphics (A subset of a full VGA-does 320x200 at 256 colors, and 640x480 at 2 colors)

Obviously, this has a mouse. What a mousepad! (Who says I should read that!)

I have a few Model 30 - 286. All but one are in storage because I lack the space to have them out and in use. The one unit I have out is equipped as follows:

80286 at 10MHz
