I have a very nice IBM 5150 XT Computer.
It works Great and still looks very good.
Includes one Floppy Disk and Hard Drive
I also have the Keyboard and a Monochrome Amdek monitor

º Released: September 1981.
º Processor: Intel 8088 running at 4.77 MHz. Optional Intel 8087 math Coprocessor.
º Language: IBM Basic (written and licensed to IBM by Microsoft).
º Keyboard: 83 Keys, 10 function keys, numeric key pad.
º Removable Storage: zero, one or two Full Height 5.25” 160Kb floppy disk drives. Optional tape
drive or hard drive
º RAM Memory (Random Access Memory): Anywhere between 16 and 256Kb. (The very first
ones shipped with 16Kb and supported a maximum of 64Kb).
º ROM Memory (Read Only Memory): 64 Kb.
º Graphics Capabilities: Depends on installed Graphics card. Typically: Text mode 40 / 80
character X 40 lines) Graphic mode: Monochrome CGA was common (320 X 200 or 640 X 200).
This particular computer has a colour Hercules VGA card in it (640 X 480), which would have
been considered optional and very high end.
º Tone generator: Built in Speaker
º Internal Expansion Slots: 5 Internal 8-bit ISA slots.

All of the specs are located at http://computermuseum.usask.ca/articles/IBM-5150-Specifications.pdf

I still have the SignalMan Mark External Modem (Manual Included) and Panasonic 24pin Printer (Manual Included) for it but it is probably not worth shipping those items. If I remember correctly there are some installed software on the hard drive such as Wordperfect, a Golf Game and some other software that I should still have the documentation for.

I will take offers and can post pictures soon. It is heavy so shipping may be a little pricey. If you did not want the monitor it would be a lot cheaper to ship but I am happy to ship it as a set.

Thanks

Which one is it?

The IBM model 5150 is the original PC, with 5 slots and a cassette port.
The IBM model 5160 is the PC-XT, with 8 slots and no cassette port.

Thus, there is no such thing as an "IBM 5150 XT".

I'm pretty sure it's a 5150 PC, judging by the manufacturing date. XT's didn't come out until '83.

Most of the quotes in the US have been around $50 USPS Parcel Post for shipping the computer and monitor. I will be shipping them in 2 different boxes.

Thank You
