An IBM PS/2 model 30
|Word Size:||16 bit|
This was a desktop i286 computer with ISA slots. It felt to me like a re-polished IBM AT in a PS/2 case. The only thing that stuck out in my mind, was that the model 30 used ESDI drives, as everyone had moved away from MFM/RLL hard disks at that time. The model 30 also used SIMMs instead of DIP chips, and had a cleaner feel to the board. I think it had 4 sockets allowing for 4MB of ram max?
The ones I used were 10MHz 286's with 1MB of RAM, and a 30MB hard disk.
Reference disks for this model can be found here.
