IBM 5155 transPortable Personal Computer
The IBM 5155 "Portable" (more transportable, no battery) was a system I first saw while working at IBM Toronto Lab in the summer of 1984. Internal IBMers were pretty disappointed about this response of their company to the Compaq, which was a much superior product (had a built in hard disk) yet it sold reasonably well and was used in far off places like Alaska (see Denton Pearson's donation and stories below).
Denton Pearson's donation of two IBM 5155 Transportables
Sitka Alaska attorney Denton Pearson made this kind donation of these two lovely IBM PC 5155 transportables as well as a hard disk expansion cabinet and IBM AT. Hear Denton describing these systems at this page at DigiBarn Radio. Thanks Denton!!!
