IBM PS/ValuePoint 486 DX2

YEAR: 1993

INITIAL PRICE: $2795

 

The IBM PS/ValuePoint (or just ValuePoint) personal computer was IBM‘s answer to the PC clone market, where the IBM PS/2 could not compete due to price and proprietary interfaces. Announced in October 1992 and withdrawn in July 1995, it was replaced by the IBM PC Series 300.

  • Intel 486DX2 at 66 MHz
  • 64 MB max memory (16 MB installed)
  • S3 86C805 video controller with 1 MB (expandable to 2 MB)
  • ISA/VESA Local bus architecture
  • 400MB HDD
  • 8X CD-ROM
  • 1.44 FDD

This computer was donated on 05-Feb-2018. The machine has a damaged HDD and no CD-ROM. Its a very nice little machine as it has no proprietary interfaces so I intend to put a Creative SoundBlaster and a SCSI IDE controller to add an external HDD. I`m gonna make this a MS-DOS Gaming Station that will give hands on access to MS-DOS games for the museum visitors.
