I am looking for an IBM 5150 (or 5160/ XT series), preferably with the monitor.
If you live in Michigan or Ohio, I can pick up, otherwise it will have to be shipped.
Give me an offer!
What of the monitors? you have the 5151 monochrome monitor (MDA), and the 5153 color mnitor (CGA).

I want to warn you, shipping the monitor is risky, try to avoid it.

Either or, I prefer the monochrome, just because thats what I had growing up, but both are fine.
Yes, shipping can be risky in all aspects of the 5150 & components, as some internals are manually set.
Im keeping my fingers crossed I can find someone withing Michigan or Ohio..

Shipping the unit itself is actually not too risky, as it's using DIP switches for the manual settings, however, you should make sure there aren't any loose memory chips after the shipment. To do this, just firmly push down all sockeded IC's.
