IBM PC 5150 set.
General info

The IBM Personal Computer, commonly known as the IBM PC, is the original version and progenitor of the IBM PC compatible hardware platform. It is IBM model number 5150 and was introduced on August 12, 1981. The generic term 'personal computer' was in use before 1981, applied as early as 1972 to the Xerox PARC's Alto, but because of the success of the IBM Personal Computer, the term 'PC' came to mean more specifically a desktop microcomputer compatible with IBM's PC products. The PC 5150 is the first IBM computer with an open architecture. Within a short time of the introduction, third-party suppliers of peripheral devices, expansion cards and software proliferated; the influence of the IBM PC on the personal computer market was substantial in standardizing a platform for personal computers. By the end of 1982 IBM was selling one PC every minute of the business day. 'IBM compatible' became an important criterion for sales growth; only the Apple Macintosh family kept significant market share without compatibility with the IBM personal computer.

With this early personal computer of a well known brand in your office, you show to your customers (and employees) that you are actually passionate about information technology.  You show that you are experienced in your field of work and that your business has years of history behind it. You are looking here at an unique opportunity to obtain a conversation piece your customers will love to see and talk about.
